Winner Sally, finalists Hannah Williams, Lana Mathews and Ellie Williams all received trophies from Sarah Tickell, Head of Windows for Harrods after completing the challenge, based on Shakespeare’s ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’. Sally will attend a work experience placement at the Harrods Knightsbridge store in September as her prize for designing, making and installing the most effective fashion display.
The students were encouraged to enter the national competition by their tutor Tracey Grover, who visits the exhibition with display students every year. Tracey said “it was great that our students took all the finalist places at the show, it’s a brilliant addition to their CVs. The whole group worked incredibly hard to produce the best designs they could. It’s a fabulous prize for Sally, she’s such a talented student and I’m sure she will make the most of the opportunity to work in the windows and in-store displays at such a prestigious store”.
