Featuring Printed Textile Design Graduate Tongtong Wang

Tongtong Wang has recently completed the Printed Textiles pathway at WSA after joining us in Year 2 from Dalian, China. Her final collection has been much admired for it’s fun prints for Interiors. At the Degree Show she was awarded the Nancy Balfour Award for excellence.

P17

Her collection focussed on “how to enjoy life and make ourselves better”, emphasising on sports and leisure activities and healthy eating. Her collection was intended to be amusing utilising her illustrative style combined with her fun abstract patterns. She was greatly influenced by the work of two photographers Muriel Bordier and Dean Bradshaw.

Tongtong hopes for a future career designing for interiors, utilising all she has learnt at WSA. Her work will be at New Designers next week alongside 15 other selected graduates from Textile Design.

WSA mentioned in the Design Council’s Ones-to-Watch

Harriet Vine, creative director of Tatty Devine was asked to report from New Designers’ this June and pick out noteworthy colleges and students.

When asked ‘What made you go wow?’ Harriet responded “Winchester University stood out to me because of the way they came across so well as a collective. They had an edgy signature style but maintained individuality in the graduates’ work. They really had their finger on the pulse.” You can read the full article here 

WSA Graduate Success for Jennifer Varty

Recent printed textiles graduate, Jennifer Varty, sets off for New York next week to start her year long internship at Collection 18 where she will be designing prints for womenswear accessories across a range of designer brands.

Jennifer was interviewed for the post at New Designers by creative director, Rachel Rowberry, an ex-Winchester School of Art graduate herself. Her final collection, inspired by mountaineering, and comprised of finely illustrated and textural prints and a sophisticated colour palette drew the attention of many visitors at both the WSA degree show and New Designers.
