Jigsaw, a leading fashion retailer, Pongees, the silk fabric specialists, and the British Fashion Council (BFC) are participating in a joint venture to provide students the opportunity to design a capsule range of eveningwear, BFC said in a media release.

The member colleges of BFC Colleges Council will send in application of one stand out student to design a piece for Jigsaw's autumn collection, which will be sold in September.

The project's focus is on exceptional design, fabric selection and innovation within fashion. Students have been asked to think about “the beauty of things made by hand, such as sculpture” - one of themes that has inspired Jigsaw's designers.

“We are hoping the students will push the boundaries of pattern cutting, taking inspiration from origami, fabric manipulation, pleating and folding,” said Jigsaw. 

“We cannot wait to see just how adventurous the students will be in their use of silk. Silk is often viewed as a classic fabric but we expect to see anything but classic designs in the entries,” said Will Steele, managing director, Pongees. 

The winning graduate's design will be supported with a dedicated window display in at least one store and promoted via Jigsaw's online and social channels. (HO)
