Amy Jones, Coleg y Cymoedd, 2016 The Patterns of Fashion Award
Patterns of Fashion Award:
We had entries from six different colleges and invited four to the finals at the Conference. Four finalists attended the finals held during the Conference. Once again the standard of workmanship shown was of a very high standard and all were congratulated by our judge, John Bright, Founder and Managing Director of Cosprop.
The winner was Amy Jones from Coleg y Cymoedd with her Youth’s brown leather jerkin. Our judge commented on her work saying that he was impressed not only by the skills she had shown in the handling of this difficult material whilst recreating the jerkin but also her thorough research into the methods used and studying garments of a similar age.
