Winning the Golden Shears.

I am proud to say that I am the winner of the Golden Shears Award 2015! The evening of Monday 16th March saw all of the 25 finalists’ work modelled on a catwalk at the Merchant Taylors’ Hall being judged by a panel of celebrities. These included; fashion designer Betty Jackson, model Jodie Kidd, Dragon’s Den entrepreneur Piers Linney, actress Jennifer Saunders and Lord Grade, former BBC Chairman. It was a fantastic event, filled with all the drama and suspense that you could wish for. The outfits were modelled on the runway, before being remodelled with their makers alongside while the marks were totalled and short bios were read out about each of the finalists. Below you can see a few photographs from the night, including me receiving the trophy before proudly accompanying my outfit down the catwalk and having photographs with the Master of the Worshipful Company of Merchant Taylors’ and celebrity judging panel.
