The winner of the SDC Colour Design Award 2008 was announced as UK-student Danielle Lewis at an awards ceremony on Friday 18 April in Bradford, UK. Danielle, a second year fashion design student at Colchester Institute's Centre for Art, Design and Media, was one of the 13 finalists who attended the event on Friday evening.

This student design competition – the first of its kind run by the SDC in conjunction with regions/affiliates around the world – saw over 50 institutions take part, with students from Australia, Hong Kong, India, South Africa, Sri Lanka, Pakistan, the UK and USA making it through to the final.

With eco-conscious fabric choices versus imagery of the iconic woman, Danielle's winning entry was rich with colour, full of 1970s silhouettes and Grecian draping. As the global winner, Danielle received a cash prize of £1000, presented by Sue Williams (SDC president), plus a prize for her college donated by Lectra.

Danielle also received a trophy in honour of the late Dr Veronica Bell (an SDC past-president) to acknowledge excellence in the field of colour and design.

As part of the grand final, all the student finalists were invited to Bradford to meet the judging panel. During their trip, they also discovered more about the Society's world of colour, they participated in a dyeing workshop, and had first hand experience of design software in action during a visit to Lectra's Bradford studio.

Each of the finalists prepared their portfolios to a universal brief and welcomed the opportunity to talk about their use of colour with the judges – Malcolm Campbell (sales and marketing manager, Holland & Sherry), Craig Crawford (PLM manager, Burberry), Laura McCafferty (textile artist) and Chris Sargeant (SDC vice-president fashion/design).
