Ramsey fashion student wins Alfa Romeo design award
A FASHION student from Ramsey has been crowned the young designer of the year in an international competition.
Janine Clark, 22, of Hollow Lane, beat hundreds of entrants from across the globe to win the Alfa Romeo competition and funding to produce a clothing range for the Muir Maxwell Trust, a paediatric epilepsy charity.
Janine, who studies fashion design at Nottingham Trent University, won with her four-piece 1940s inspired designs, which will be featured in the Fashion Show magazine.
“It’s crazy,” she said. “I never thought I would win at all. It was a really high standard and I had to present my work to the panel of judges which was daunting, but I must have impressed them.
“Alfa Romeo is sending a design brief for work they want me to do and another company has asked me to go to London for a fashion festival which is brilliant.”
