Liberty launch for WSA students' scarf designs

Published: 16 May 2011

Charity scarves designed by textile students from the University of Southampton's Winchester School of Art have been launched at the prestigious scarf hall at Liberty department store in London.

International conservation charity The World Land Trust collaborated with Liberty and WSA on a competition to find the winning designs. World-famous model Lily Cole has also backed it with a photo-shoot to promote them.

The students' brief was to design a scarf inspired by WLT projects to go on sale in Liberty's illustrious central atrium. A judging panel of artists and accessory experts including; Vogue's Senior Fashion Assistant Tammy Tinker, the Head of Buying at Liberty Alex Stylianidis, prominent shoe designer Michael Lewis, celebrated wildlife artist and WLT trustee Bruce Pearson, and jewellery designer Dominic Jones.

The panel was asked to select five winning designs from fourteen finalists at Winchester School of Art. After much deliberation, the judges named the winners as Evelyn Males Echeverria, Phoebe Farrell, Freya Perrett and Lauren Dunbar - who won in two categories.

The five designs went into production and were launched at the store on 11 May 2011. All profits made from the sales will be donated to the World Land Trust to save endangered habitats all over the world. For more information visit the Save it with a scarf blog.
