We attended New Designers with our BA (Hons) Design for Textiles students and it turned out to be an outstanding show with two students, in particular, receiving great news.
Beth Wilson was awarded the Worshipful Company of Weavers prize for the best woven collection in the entire show. The judges described her collection as outstanding and praised her sketchbook and development work.
Hayley McCrirrick was interviewed on Tuesday and found out on Wednesday that she has been selected to exhibit in Paris as part of the TEXPRINT initiative as one of the top 24 students in the U.K. and will be showing her collection in London next week and Paris in September. This follows endorsements from John Lewis & Romo fabrics at the show.
A huge well done to Beth & Hayley for their success amongst the hundreds of design graduates competing for the awards and opportunities.
