Last night Matthew Boulton College celebrated the launch of their two brand new specialist design studios, ‘FEED Studio’ and ‘Fashion Lab’ with a fashion show for the finalists of the ‘PIN’ competition.
The aim of PIN is to profile the fashion talent of the West Midlands via a fashion competition. The final of the ‘PIN’ competition culminated on last night with 12 finalists going head-to-head on the runway, presenting their Spring/Summer 2008 collections. A panel of six judges from within the fashion industry chose the two winners from the two categories, Jenny Hardcastle from Solihull, Birmingham won the New Designer award and Shamrez Marawat from Moseley, Birmingham won the Young Business award. Each winner received £10k to develop their business.
