SDC to sponsor Colour & Textiles Award 2008

May '08
Taking as its theme 'connecting colleges with colour', the Society of Dyers and Colourists (SDC) is pleased to be a sponsor of Graduate Fashion Week. For the second year running, the Society will sponsor the SDC Colour & Textiles Award 2008 – open to students from all colleges exhibiting at this, the premier event in the graduate calendar, which takes place in London on 8–12 June 2008.

- Make a splash of colour at GFW 2008
- All exhibiting colleges eligible to enter students

The award is portfolio-based and judging will take place on Tues 10 June, with David Saunders, the fashion designer behind London label David David, being a co-judge alongside the SDC.

The judges will be looking for students whose work has explored the creative and inspired use of colour to achieve a distinctive fashion statement in either printed or constructed textiles. The winner will be announced at a gala show and awards ceremony on Wed 11 June and will receive a cheque for £750, with an additional £250 going to their university.

As an authority in the industry on all matters relating to the development, use and application of colour in the global textile supply chain, the SDC is a committed sponsor of young designers.

Comments Chris Sargeant, SDC vice-president fashion/design, 'We are delighted to be at Graduate Fashion Week once again, sponsoring an award that promotes the imaginative and exciting use of colour in design. If the wealth of talent on show last year was anything to go by, the judges' decision is going to be a difficult one.'
