Our young designers featured in 'Sew Today' magazine
Our IDC College Young Designers have been featured in one of Britain’s monthly sewing magazines – “Sew Today”. The Young Designers club is for children, ranging in age, from 9 – 16 who have an interest in clothes design and sewing. Created by the successful fashion consultant, Brenda Killigrew, Young Designers get to show off their extraordinary handiwork at fashion events such as the Fashion and Embroidery and Sewing for Pleasure show, 2018.
The designs are testament to the children’s innovative thinking and guidance provided by IDC’s design team who have supported Young Designers since their inception in 2000.
No wonder our Young Designers have featured in Sew Today as these are the faces that will drive British fashion ever onward. Congratulations Young Designers of IDC College!
