30 June 2010

Knitwear and accessories designer Elisabeth Hamlyn has been named Young Accessory Designer of the Year in the award organised by Clothes Show London in partnership with the FTM.

Elisabeth's winning design  was a brightly coloured, pleated and knitted scarf which took inspiration from the museum's bold and colourful building. Elisabeth will have her design stocked in Shop@FTM as well as receiving free training and a six month business support package to help her set up and develop her business.

The winner was announced on Sunday 27th June at Clothes Show London. "This new award aims to support and nurture aspiring designers in this highly competitive industry" comments Gavin Brown, Managing Director of Haymarket Exhibitions. "With the support of the Fashion and Textile Museum the winner is presented with a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to showcase their new product." Elisabeth said "I am absolutely thrilled to have won and know that the business support will be really useful for my label. I am really looking forward to seeing my scarf in the FTM shop as this will be a wonderful opportunity for my brand." The judges felt the standard of entries was very high, with a special mention going to runners up Sian Bostwick and Imogen Belfield.
