Former Wyke student Angela Ives has leapt into the public eye with an appearance in the latest Burberry advertising campaign.
Angela studied art and design at Wyke, progressing onto a Textiles degree at Nottingham Trent University, specialising in knitwear. She is now a knitwear and print product developer at Burberry and her cameo appearance sees her line up next to Romeo Beckham, Sir Elton John and Naomi Campbell in an advert that celebrates the 15th anniversary of the iconic British film “Billy Elliot”.

If the surname Ives sounds familiar, her sister Rebecca also works at Wyke, teaching in the college’s media department.
