The ASBCI is delighted to announce the presentation of a life-time ASBCI Fellowship Award to Paschal Little, head of technology for lingerie and childrenswear at Marks & Spencer. Malcolm Ball, ASBCI chairman announced the award in a surprise presentation at the recent ASBCI Annual Industry Conference 2009 held at the Dunchurch Park Hotel in Rugby.

Over 100 delegates watched as Paschal Little received his award in recognition of the outstanding contribution he has made to the association and the wider clothing industry.

As explained by Malcolm Ball, ASBCI chairman: "The ASBCI Fellowship Award is only presented when an individual member has exceeded all expectations. Paschal joined the ASBCI board in 2005 since when his input into the association's activities has been invaluable, particularly his work on the ASBCI's student membership committee where he has played a crucial role in supporting and judging the ASBCI Annual Student Dissertation Award. This life-time award reflects our industry's sincere gratitude."

In reply Paschal Little said: " I am completely shocked to be the recipient of this award and not least because I know some of the previous worthy winners. It is an honour to accept it. The ASBCI has a vital role to play in preparing our country's young design and technical talent for their future careers and I am delighted to be part of the association."

The ASBCI student committee was established to give students working towards design, technical, laboratory testing, textile design, retail business and many other related fashion qualifications a greater practical and commercial understanding of the fashion industry.

It annually organises two high profile student awards designed to support and showcase new talent coming into the fashion industry; the ASBCI Student Design Award and the ASBCI Student Dissertation Award. Entry to the awards is open to all final year students studying at fashion colleges throughout the UK.
