FROM THE JUDGES
We were really impressed by Vicky’s development of traditional processes, and the way she kept us excited while talking us through every stage of her project, right the way out the other side and into what she wants to achieve in the future. She made us feel involved in her work, not just as spectators, and we know that her talent and enthusiasm is going to push her to do some inspirational things in the textile industry.
The successful New Designer will be brave, trend setting, innovative and have a good sense of colour with a specific end use in mind, but be prepared to ‘cross over’ into other merchandise arenas.
DESCRIPTION OF WORK
Wandering Down The Garden Path – Joy of Print celebrates Vicky Huang’s experience of walking in nature and being inspired by British botanical gardens and wild paths. It aims to appreciate the beauty of native flora and the subtle and slower movements of everyday life.
