We invite you to help us kickstart our careers by supporting our £2,700 target for 27 textile design students to showcase their work at New Designers 2017, a monumental London trade show! Our Kickstarter target is an essential contribution to our overall £15,000 the trade show’s stall cost. This will give students the opportunity to showcase their work in London to some of the most influential people in the industry, including employers and buyers.
As a group of experimental textile design students we have a wide variety skills from screen-printing, fashion knitwear, digital print, contemporary embroidery, ceramics, smart textiles technologies and innovative mixed media. Whilst some students are producing stunning work that is ready for the commercial textile market, others are pursuing projects with sustainable or technological interest incorporating laser cutting, 3D printing and even coding. With such a diverse range of work, our studio aims to push the boundaries of textile design to create unique, contemporary and desirable surfaces.
Our students have already won prizes such as the 2016 RSA Eddie Squires award (in partnership with the Materials Council), the 2016 Cordiner Craft of Dundee Award and the 2016 Keass Creative Alumni Award. As well as many awards, students have sold their work to international companies and have won many internships through class projects. New Designers 2017 tradeshow will allow us to make valuable contacts and connections within the textile industry as well as provide the opportunity to win prizes, internships and jobs. ND is the perfect platform to debut as professional textile designers in the UK (and beyond).
We truly appreciate all donations to invest in our future and we hope you enjoy our video! Thank you!
