Supporters of Brighton’s record breaking Pompom

Posted 26.05.2011

Brighton Fashion Week was kick started this year by a giant Pompom – thought to be the largest of its kind in the World. 

The building of the giant Pompom took over 8 days and was officially revealed on May 6th at the Jubilee Square, Brighton. 

Two tonnes of woolen recycled clothing from Bag2School was used to make the colourful Pompom which stood 5t 7in high.  Once dismantled, the clothing will be seperated and the wool taken to a recycling plant where it will be broken down into its natural fibres and re spun into a giant ball of yarn, in order to make more clothing.  The organisors wanted to ensure no materials were wasted for this record breaking build, so recycling was an important part of the project.

The giant pompom took an impressive 500 hours to create, with the final measurements for the pompom being 13ft 1 in wide x 5ft 7in high. 

The official current Guinness world record for the largest pom-pom measured 1.21 metres (4 ft) high, and 3.25 metres (10 ft 8 in) in diameter and was created by the children of the 6th class of the Salesian Primary School (all Ireland) in Limerick, Ireland, on 16 March 2010.

Brighton Fashion Week runs from 31st May – 5th June
