50 Years in Fashion Illustration Competition

At the start of 2018, we launched our ’50 Years in Fashion’ illustration competition to Arts and Design students across the Midlands. We received over forty illustrations from students at Nottingham Trent University, Staffordshire University and Derby University.

Here are some of fantastic entries we had from students across Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire and Staffordshire.

The Winner

Andra Eliza Nistor

We are happy to congratulate our winner Andra Eliza Nistor from Nottingham Trent University. Andra’s design was the key promotional image used for our Spring Summer 2018 Launch Party, as well as this she won a £200 gift voucher as part of her prize to spend instore.

Andra is an international student studying Fashion Design at Nottingham Trent University. Andra attended our SS18 Launch Party to see her design used around the store, as well as to spend her £200 voucher. She said, “Winning came as such a surprise! As a fashion design student, I am used to making fashion illustrations for my own work and incorporating my own designs, but I have never done any commercial illustrations. I found it quite challenging to find the right style, colours and poses to make an illustration that would attract customers.”

All the team at Young Ideas would like to thank each student who entered our ’50 Years in Fashion’ illustration competition. Keep an eye out for these illustrations across a range of limited edition commemorative products available to purchase throughout the year.
