Fashion student wins Bradford Textile Society Award

Lauren Neville, a final year student on the Fashion and Textiles degree course has been awarded a ‘Commendation’ for her submission for Bradford Textile Society’s Prestigious Textiles Award.

The Bradford Textile Society derives the greatest pleasure from the continuing success of its Prize Schemes, which have been the source of encouragement and inspiration to textile students and practising textile designers, and have helped to stimulate new developments in textile design and construction, and finishing and printing techniques. This competition, one of the oldest of its kind, is the most important event in the annual programme.

For the award, entrants were asked to create a textile design suitable for domestic curtains, upholstery, cushions and blinds, drawn in repeat.

Lauren’s design called ‘Painterly Scribbles’ was a colourful fusion of painterly brush strokes and floral doodles scattered with pen mark doodles.

Yve Houghton, senior Fashion/Textiles lecturer, told us: “There was stiff competition for this award from all of the other UK Universities and this was the first time that the University of Wolverhampton had entered. We are delighted at Lauren’s success.”

Lauren will travel up to Bradford next month for the official presentation at Bradford School of Art.
