Macclesfield Express - - BUSINESS - STU­ART GREER

A FASH­ION stu­dent has been named the win­ner of a com­pe­ti­tion to find the next de­sign tal­ent.

Cathryn-Jane Shires, 18, from Poyn­ton, was cho­sen to the best de­sign in a com­pe­ti­tion or­gan­ised by Sin­ga­pore Air­lines.

The air­line chal­lenged 28 fash­ion stu­dents at Manch­ester Col­lege to cre­ate a be­spoke gar­ment that cel­e­brates the launch of new non-stop routes to Hous­ton and Sin­ga­pore which launched last week.

Cathryn-Jane, of Bardell Cres­cent, made it through to the fi­nal which was sub­ject to a pub­lic vote on Face­book and the views of a panel of judges.

The fi­nal­ists cre­ated their de­signs which were mod­elled at a cat­walk show at an event at the Radis­son Ho­tel on Mon­day.

Cathryn-Jane was cho­sen as the win­ning de­sign and will now see her out­fit on dis­play for a week at Manch­ester Air­port for trav­ellers to see.

An­drew Piper, head of Me­dia and Vis­ual Arts at the col­lege, said: “The tal­ent of all of the de­sign­ers tak­ing part in this com­pe­ti­tion should help in es­tab­lish­ing Manch­ester on the fash­ion map.”
