Kate Sylvester stud­ied fash­ion at Massey Univer­sity and was in­ducted into the Massey Univer­sity Hall of Fame in 2008 be­fore the be­stow­ment of an honary doc­tor­ate from the univer­sity in 2011. Now, to fur­ther ce­ment ties be­tween the revered NZ de­signer and the in­sti­tu­tion is the es­tab­lish­ment of the Kate Sylvester Award for De­sign ex­cel­lence, an an­nual grad­u­ate award to high­light the school’s de­sign and cre­ativ­ity and ce­ment Kate's on­go­ing in­volve­ment with the school. Lu­cilla Gray is the in­au­gu­ral win­ner of the award, the cen­tre­piece of which is an 8 week de­sign in­tern­ship at the Kate Sylvester work­room from Jan­uary through un­til March. Dur­ing that time the award win­ner gets the chance to de­sign an out­fit for the Kate Sylvester Spring Sum­mer col­lec­tion, a highly pres­ti­gious and far reach­ing prize. Lu­cilla's brief was to de­velop a story that tied into the Kate Sylvester SS14 con­cept ’West Coast’ and we think she has clev­erly cap­tured the rugged­ness of the coast with a tough yet fem­i­nine vibe, cap­tured here by the inim­itable pho­to­graphic duo of Karen In­der­b­itzen-waller and Del­phine Avril Plan­queel.
