SDC at Graduate Fashion Week 2008

We are pleased to be once again sponsoring an award at Graduate Fashion Week, which takes place in London in exactly one months time (Sun 8 to Thurs 12 June). The
SDC Colour & Textiles Award
promotes the imaginative and exciting use of colour in printed or constructed textiles and is open to students (on both fashion and textiles courses) from colleges exhibiting at GFW - we wish all the students taking part the best of luck!

Judging of the portfolios will take place on the Tuesday and the winner will be announced at the glittering Gala Show on Wednesday evening. The SDC judge will be Chris Sargeant (SDC vice-president fashion/design), and we found out this week that the co-judge for our award this year will be David Saunders (aka David David), which we are very excited about! David's trademark is his kaleidoscopic vivid prints - as seen on his recent collaboration for Fred Perry's 'Blank Canvas' project.

More on our plans for Graduate Fashion Week coming soon!
