WSA Fashion Design student Rhian Owen selected for #Enliven15 Fashion Competition

Year 2 WSA Fashion Design student Rhian Owen is one of six designers to be selected for this years #Enliven15 Fashion upcycle project and competition. Through the project Rhian has worked with local charity shop CLIC Sargent to develop clothing cast-offs into an upcycled fashion design.

All #Enliven15 outfits will be exhibited at the Summer Open Studios event in Eastleigh this weekend. Members of the public will be able to view the upcycled fashion designs and meet the designers as well as look around The Sorting Office which is home to 16 professional artists and designer-makers.

The upcycled fashion designs will also be entered into a competition judged by the award-winning designer Mia Nisbet. The winner will receive a career development bursary as well as further exhibition opportunities and other prizes.

Good luck Rhian!
