Hackney schoolgirl makes design debut at London Fashion Week
A Hackney schoolgirl was over the moon to see an outfit she created on the London Fashion Week catwalk on Tuesday night.
Our Lady’s Covent High School student Shaunette Vincent was one of just 25 talented teenagers who were picked to make their design debut
by creative charity FAD (Fashion Awareness Direct.)
The 17-year old from the school in Amhurst Park, Stamford Hill created a black and teal jumpsuit with oversized pockets, and orange waistband which was shown at the largest independent showcase at London Fashion week, Vauxhall Fashion Scout.
Originally selected from 100 young people who participated in FAD’s Fashion Futures 2 workshops earlier this year, the 25 finalists spent a week at the FAD Summer School, held at the University of East London.
