UCA BA (Hons) Fashion Design graduate Martina Mansaray won the PrettyLittleThing Designer of the Year competition! Martina said “I was looking through PLT’s app and I saw ‘Future of Fashion’ and my eyes lit up! I went to their website for more information and saw that they were giving young designers an opportunity to design for them. I immediately started to brainstorm and research, it felt like being at UCA all over again and I was so excited and energised. “A few days after the submission deadline I received an email informing me that I was a finalist, and to send over a couple more designs and a short biography and not long after that I was informed that I won and it’s been a whirlwind ever since,” she added. Martina’s collection, is inspired by the 2000s pop culture she grew up on, with vibrant colours and print, with form-fitting silhouettes and ruching to accentuate curves. All of her designs are now on sale on Pretty Little Things’ website. “I wanted to create the sexy, confident woman, and celebrate the body with form fitting silhouettes,” she said. “I would love to work with PLT again sometime in the future as it was such a great learning experience.” Read more: http://bit.ly/3lRtfEB #WeareUCA #MakersofUCA #prettylittlething #fashion #bafashion #fashiondesignrochester #ucafashiondesign #fashiondesign #fashiondesigner #design #fashioncourse #fashionstudents #art #creative #prettylittlething
