Contest celebrates Derbyshire’s best young designers
Derbyshire fashion house, David Nieper, held the final of a competition for primary school children to design and make textiles creations in a project created to recognise and reward some of our best and youngest designers.
The Fashion for Free! competition has been established to help encourage children to use their imaginations and learn how to create and make things.
The event was called Fashion for Free! as the children are not allowed to spend any money on their design, but must find something from around the home or school, and give it a new lease of life using only old and recycled items.
Pictured with their designs are pupils from some of the schools which took part in the competition.
