2016 John Lewis Prom Dress Success for BSCS students

finished-designs-webBack in October John Lewis launched their annual Prom dress competition, where students from local secondary schools submit Prom dress designs, in a bid to win the opportunity to make their creations with a team of experts in John Lewis. This year 4 of the 7 finalists were from Bradley Stoke Community School.

Shannon Locke, Tierney Mannion, Lily-Mai Stagg and Talia Hacker produced stunning final designs that were chosen for their creativity and ‘current, on trend’ ideas. The girls gave up their own time during February half term to make their designs a reality in the John Lewis workshops with a team of professionals, who helped them draft and adapt their patterns, choose their fabrics from the exquisite range at John Lewis haberdashery department, fit their garments and stitch their dresses, realising their original intentions.

Once all the creations were complete, finalists were treated to a photoshoot at the beautiful Old Down Estate, with styling, hair and make up by the John Lewis Beauty department. The day culminated in a glitzy fashion show event, celebrating the students and their hard work, and announcing our very own Talia Hacker (Yr 12) as the overall winner.

Thank you to Mrs Lynden, Textiles teacher at Bradley Stoke Community School, for this update.
