First Prize Winner
BA (hons) Fashion Design, Glasgow – Graduate
My aim is to start my own business and learn as much as I can, regards becoming a high fashion designer who will also work with natural materials such as real fur, leather and silks.
My goal is to be an ethical and responsible designer.
My collections are very creative, yet wearable and I love to play with panels, colours and step out of my comfort zone.
I get inspired by everything, from biological to emotional, from metallic to imaginative and I have never ending ideas.
Second Prize Winner
Eliza is a second year BA (Hons) Fashion Design and Textile student at University of Huddersfield
‘Since I was a little girl I always wanted to become a fashion designer.’
‘For me fur is an ultimate luxury product. Love for fur comes from my culture, but beyond that I think it’s everyone desire to achieve luxury in life and for me fur represents the ultimate luxury item in fashion.’
Mwewa is a 2nd year BA (Hons) Fashion Design and Textiles student at University of Huddersfield.
‘I like the idea of working with fur because it has such beauty that represents each animal’s uniqueness and I want to celebrate that. Also because it has a sense of comfort due the variety of textures that come with the type of fabric.
My future aim is to have my own brand that involves me to be creative with everyday day pieces and combining textures. At the same time, being sustainable by reusing old garments that are not needed and transforming them into something new and different.’
