A PUPIL from a Bourne school has won the coveted Lincolnshire Young Designer of the Year 2012 award.
Twelve pupils from Bourne Grammar School took part in the Lincolnshire Sew Into Fashion Show at the Drill Hall in Lincoln.
Lauren Denial’s structured jacket with a tight nipped in waist and full panelled skirt was judged by Wayne Hemmingway, from design label Red or Dead, as the top design on the night.
The pupils have been meeting on a weekly basis throughout the year to create garments under the Best of British theme, selecting a weekend in an English country house as their inspiration.
They also worked with Lincoln millinery designers Hats on Heads to creative innovative headwear.
Also taking part in the fashion show was Year 10 pupil Georgina Hall, who used William Morris furnishing fabric combined with pure silk for her outfit.
Continuing the British theme Year 9 Hannah Elliot’s silk garment was inspired by English bone china, Year 9 Emma Barber used traditional tartan and luxurious velvet for her elegant evening gown and an old English oak tree inspired Year 10 Lauren Digby to construct a short laced dress.
Year 11 Chloe French’s garment was baed on cabbage rose and Year 11 Jade Carvath-Smith designed an evening gown with a long organza jewelled train.
