ICHF’s annual School’s Fashion Design Competition is open for entries! If you are a student aged 13-18 studying textiles and have a passion for fashion, then this competition is for you…

This year we are asking students to research the late undisputed queen of British fashion Vivienne Westwood’s career, who’s innovative genius was acknowledged worldwide. Vivienne was revolutionary in her designs, a fearless non-conformist, but with a real passion for tradition. Students are invited to create their own take on one of her iconic styles and if selected for the final, make up their design for the catwalk at Fashion & Embroidery, NEC Birmingham.
