Craft Awards Derry

270215dk094

A few weeks ago, I had the absolute pleasure of winning the "Best Student" award at the Craft Awards, Derry, for my printed dress designs.
When I found out that I was shortlisted, I was thrilled and the prospect of having my designs on display in the exhibition leading up to the show was amazing. That in itself was an incredible opportunity so when I found out that I was selected as the winner, I just couldn't believe it.
I was presented with my beautiful, hand crafted prize by the Principal of the North West Regional College, where I am currently studying and this made it very personal and extra rewarding for me.
The event itself took place in the beautiful ballroom at the Guildhall in Derry/Londonderry and we were treated to a lovely three course meal before the innovative knitwear show began.
The designs on display were so unique and gave an entirely new outlook to such a traditional method of garment creation - I have selected a few of my favourites below including the unbelievable cardigan in the last image created by Orla Savage - I just have to have!
Thank you to everyone who supported me in the run up to this competition, to all at Derry City Council and the Craft Awards team for selecting me as their winner and to my beautiful model from Style Academy for making my dress look even more stunning! It was an amazing night and I so look forward to launching the rest of my collection in the coming months!
