SAMANTHA PEARCE

OF

NOTTINGHAM TRENT UNIVERSITY

Victoria Shelsher, a knitwear designer for Next, judged the competition last weekend.  Thirty entries were selected for judging and from the eighteen semi-finalists, Vicky put seven through to the final and it has to be said that the winning design stood out from the beginning.  Our judge’s comments about the winner were “The design is very versatile, using lovely techniques, is extremely well presented and beautifully drawn.  It is also wearable and can easily be produced on a machine.  The garment would be marketed at the high end as a limited range and could be seen in a Bond Street store such as Max Mara.”

Vicky was impressed by the overall standard of all the submitted designs and we would like to thank her as well as the participating students and tutors for their time and support for the competition in 2013.

Samantha’s design will be on display at the National Show for all to see and admire.  Come and visit the Fibre Zone where not only will the thirty designs from this year be displayed but most of the stunning creations from the World Alpaca Conference catwalk will also be exhibited.
