Josephine Thomas, Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama 2008 The Patterns of Fashion Award
Josephine Thomas' beautiful doublet is a recreation of the doublet held in the V & A museum collection. Josie had gone to extremes when recreating this and had had to learn how to make the buttons as well as all the other construction details. It had many hidden layers, all correctly handled, canvases, wadding and layers of silk. A worthy winner of the Award.
