A Flair for Fashion – YFDUK 2020 Results
Young Fashion Designer UK is a highlight in the Textiles calendar and is usually hosted at RGS Worcester each year. Even though we have not been able to run the competition in its usual format, we have launched our first online competition for students across the country to enter.
We are delighted that RGS Worcester pupils have represented the School so well amongst the 180 entries that we received for the Midlands and North region.
Darcy Nock, Year Nine, achieved Second Place in the age 11-14 years category and Teyah Farmer, Arianne Eddy and Kitty Jenkinson, Year Nine girls, all received a ‘Highly Commended’ certificate; Teyah also made it to the final ten in that category.
Anna Berry, Year Eleven, achieved Second Place in the age 15-16 category, for her stunning design work based on 1930s fashion. Erin Howard, who has joined us this term from The Chantry School as part of the Year Eleven A Level ‘bridging’ course, achieved First Place overall. Erin produced such vibrant and creative research and capsule collection that really stood out amongst the entries.
Finally, Honesty Shaw-Young, Lower Sixth, also made the final ten in the age 17-18 category and has received a ‘Highly Commended’ certificate for her 1940’s military-inspired collection.
It has been really inspiring to see the variety of entries coming in from so many different schools and we are thrilled that our entries have done so well overall.
Very well done to all who entered, the judges had a very difficult job indeed.
