Announced last night on the final day of Graduate Fashion Week, the competition was judged by designer and founding member of Graduate Fashion Week, the legendary Jeff Banks.

The ‘Great Tick-Tock T-shirt Challenge’ ran everyday at the graduate event, with visitors flocking to the George stand in their droves to have a go. Each entrant had just five minutes, timed with a stop watch, to draw their design and the best three from each day were selected as finalists.

Several of FAD’s Fashion Futures students took part and we are delighted to see one of them win the amazing prize! As well as giving Robyn £1000 towards her education, George will also put her cat inspired design into production to be sold on from July.
