In an attempt to promote excellence in design and support students who have the potential to benefit the Fashion Industry with their contribution. British Fashion Council Education Foundation allocates funding to third year BA Fashion students to support their pathways into successful careers.
This year recipients of the scholarship were Pip Paz-Howlett and Cavan McPherson. Pip, a student at University of Winchester, specialises in menswear. His work focused on print and textiles especially fabric and silk screen printing.
Cavan, a student at Manchester School of Art, specialises in womenswear. Her work consisted of ethical fabrics used with elegance and her androgynous, conceptual designs. It will be interesting to see the future careers of these potential fashion fore runners.
Co-president of the BFC Education Pillar, Sarah Mower, said: “In the interview process it is incredibly rewarding to start relationships with creative people with fresh ideas which will form the future. So far, the students selected by the BFC Education Foundation committee have all graduated with First Class degrees, an incredible success rate which has only been made possible by the immense generosity of our donors, to whom we are continually grateful”.
