Congratulations to Turaya in Year 12 who has been shortlisted for the Regent's International Fashion Competition.

Her design, modelled by fellow Sixth Former Megan, and her design board were both entered in the competition and are both pictured below:
Entries into the competition came from around the world, with the other two finalists coming from Turkey and the Czech Republic.
The shortlisted entries will be shown at a static exhibition prior to the Graduate Fashion Show and the winner and runners up will be announced by our panel of fashion industry judges.
The winning student and their school will both receive a first prize package in the form of beautiful fashion books from Bloomsbury, including Stuart McKenzie’s Creative Fashion Illustration. Two runners up will each receive a fantastic fashion book.
