Yay ....prizewinners.....

Me dosed up and upright to collect my prize......

Eileen won the overall prize with her amazing paper dress ......she had the extra honour of being asked by Wayne Hemmingway (Red or dead) to exhibit her dress in his vintage museum on the South bank

Eira won the prize and bursary for the most wearable outfit...Eira paints exquisite patterns on fabric and if you enlarge the photos you can see her amazing peacock feather boots........

Well Saturday was the culmination of the Enliven Project......Models were dressed, nerves were jangling, painkillers were taken, questions were rehearsed and we were ready for the fashion show catwalk. It went smoothly and without a hitch. The outfits were fantastic and everyone was buzzing with excitement......and as we found out there were three prizes ......and Yay I was lucky enough to win one for the category of the most re-worked piece ...I won a bursary of £150 to continue my work .....I was delighted
