Caught up in colour: University of Southampton student is a UK finalist in major textile design competition
A student at the University of Southampton’s Winchester School of Art has taken part in the UK final of a global textile design competition. The Society of Dyers and Colourists ‘Colour Design Award 2009’ is searching the world for the artist who demonstrates the best creative, imaginative and original use of colour in either fashion or textiles.
Harriet Curtis is a WSA undergraduate in BA (Hons) Textile Fashion as Fibre, specialising in Printed Textile Design. She impressed judges at regional heats with her interior textile designs for wallpaper and furnishings and supporting research, winning through to the finals.
“I’m really excited to have got this far and although I’ve missed out on the world finals in Goa, it’s given me the opportunity to showcase my work and demonstrate the high quality of design at Winchester School of Art,” commented Harriet.
The Colour Design Award 2009 UK finals were held in Bradford on Friday 24 April. The global finals take place in Goa, India in June.
