Fashion and textile undergraduates from across Scotland gathered at the stunning Glasgow School of Art on Wednesday 15th March to compete at the Scotland heat of the International Design Competition. Textile Design students from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design came out on top, securing first place and two runners up. The judges favourite, Eidilh Ferguson scooped first place with her “beautifully presented” design ‘Ethical Illumination’ whilst Margaret McCall and Robyn Nisbet were awarded well deserved runners- up by the panel of industry professionals :
- Lynn Wilson FRSA- Textile Designer/Researcher
- Lyndsey Moore – Product Development Manager, Glenmuir Ltd
- Kay Hodgson – Designer, Kynoch of Scotland
Entering students also participated in the CSI ‘Colour Scene Investigation’ workshop and enjoyed examining different fabrics, researching where fabrics and dyes can be sourced and enjoyed some healthy discussion about how they fit into the circular economy; a presentation from Lynn Wilson on Designing for a Circular Economy rounded off the day perfectly.
Many thanks to our hosts Glasgow School of Art, our expert judges and skillful workshop facilitator Andy Stirling Robertson.
