And the awards go to...
Finally, after six months of assemblies, lessons, workshops, events and a lot of help from B&NES school teachers, we can announce the four winners of the Fashion & Fairytale sustainable fashion competition!
Our creative director Cindy Beadman, and our industry judges, Andy Jackson, Rachel P Blake and Emma Reichenbach had an incredibly tough job to whittle down the four winning designs from the 300 entries from school children and individual young people across the county and we have been blown away by their careful consideration of the planet, drawing and design skills and boundless enthusiasm for our project.
To enter into the final, designers had to demonstrate that they had met the competition brief and fulfilled four criteria:
The judges reviewed the designs on four occasions to ensure that they were all happy with their decisions and feedback from the judges and fabulous prizes will be presented to the runners up and winners at their school assemblies over the course of the next few weeks.
So without further ado, we are delighted to announce the four runners up are:
KS1 - Imogen Ball
KS2 - Mabel Dale Pearce
KS3 - Charlotte Fletcher
KS4 - Eloise Evans
And the four worthy winners are:
KS1: Bethany Trowmans
KS2: Edith Holladay
KS3: Catherine Cook
KS4: Mayu Ishimoto
We are sure you will agree that their attention to detail and boundless creativity is well deserving of their winner status and we are incredibly grateful to our partners for generously donated the following prizes:
