Mevish and Fatima entered the HIVE Skills Showcase competition at DACA in March. We provided 2 pieces of fabric and asked students to design or create an item of their choice with the material and send in some photos of their creations by the deadline, with the chance to win £50 John Lewis voucher.
Mevish designed a beautiful dress with different fabrics and a flower. Fatima designed 2 cushions using 2 different fabrics with frill edging detail. I am sure the students could show you the photos of their designs. We were really impressed with the standard of all the entries from all the schools and the range of items students made which included bags, phone covers and pencil cases.
We would like to take this opportunity to wish Mevish and Fatima every success with their studies and encourage them to continue to be creative with fabric.
