Fashion student wins British Glove Association award


A student on the London Metropolitan University (London Met) accredited Foundation Degree in Fashion and Textiles at City and Islington College, has scooped first prize in the British Glove Association’s Glove Design Competition.

Eva Pospisilova won the prize in the ‘Design a glove for a pop star, past or present’ category. Her design was inspired by Madonna and included a silver diamond motif and printed fabric sleeve. Eva will receive £300, three days work experience within the Textile Conservation Department at the Victoria and Albert Museum and an invitation to an awards ceremony at The Drapers Hall.

The competition, which is sponsored by the Worshipful Company of Glovers, has been running since 1975 to encourage students to create practical and original glove designs. The judges look for designs that show a commercial aspect in respect to the ease of manufacture and ’self-ability’.

Commenting on her win, Eva said: ‘The Foundation Degree in Fashion and Textiles course has really developed my design and creativity skills, giving me the confidence to submit my glove design to this competition. I am really looking forward to the work experience opportunity at the V&A Museum where I can gain further experience and utilise the skills I have already developed on my course.

London Metropolitan University offers a range of Foundation Degree courses in partnership with City and Islington College which are work-related and flexible, with extensive hands-on work related learning. Students can develop the practical skills and knowledge to fast-track their careers or progress to a full Honours Degree.
