Earlier this year, Mulberry teamed up with the BFC Colleges Council to launch a competition for fashion students that would see the winner awarded with a £2,000 prize to give their careers a little bit of a head start.
Entrants had to illustrate and describe at least five looks that would be appropriate for the Mulberry autumn/winter 2013 season, and the one that impressed the judges the most was… drumroll please… Jousianne Propp!
Jousianne Propp from the Manchester School of Art was chosen by Creative Director Emma Hill and Head of Ready-to-Wear Frances Stringer – a decision that was apparently very difficult to make due to the exceptionally high standard of entries.
“Jousianne understood the brief completely,” said Emma Hill. “Her overall vision of the collection was exactly what we were looking for. The quality of sketches, research undertaken and the presentation in general was professional and sleek.”
Could we be looking at a future Mulberry designer then? Watch this space! Congrats again to Jousianne; a worthy winner if you ask us!
