Berisfords Competition

EATON BANK ACADEMY WINNERS

Students from years 10 to 13 took part in the design competition to create a beach inspired dress using a selection of ribbons provided by Berisfords, taking inspiration from the ocean, mythical sea creatures, corals and more.
Forming part of their BTEC Fashion and Clothing award, pupils were given a tour of the factory allowing them to experience manufacturing and design processes. Garments this year were completed to a high standard, incorporating a variety of methods to utilise and manipulate the ribbon to create decorative features such as plaiting, distressing, embroidery and patchwork techniques. Directors Fiona Hampton and Peter Bowers attended the school for judging, awarding 1st prize to Cathy Hassell, 2nd prize to Rebecca Tame and 3rd prize to Emma Higinbotham. Congratulations to the winners and a big well done to all the students who took part!
