“My collection would suit anyone that’s confident and wants to feel special in something that they have never worn before. Inspiration was taken from different pieces of abstract art and graffiti; it was a mash together of loads of colour and something completely different”
“We have used a similar material to a silk jersey; it handles really nicely and looks so flattering on any size”
Alice Farrow took inspiration from bold, contemporary prints to create a powerful, often clashing, colour pattern throughout her designs.
Wear these eye-catching prints together for a high-fashion look, or match with black skirt or top to create sleek but standout impact.
I’d like to see my designs on anyone who’s confident, on someone who really wants to feel special and different in something that they’ve never worn before.

“For me it is so exciting to be part of a plus size design initiative as you don’t normally get an opportunity to be involved in something like this”
“I really want plus size clothing to be more colourful and experimental. I feel like they hold back because it’s plus size and they shouldn’t!”
Rebecca Partington’s winning knitwear collection was influenced by hot air balloons over cityscapes, and she took this inspiration into the designs across her dress, ardigan, skirt and tank top range.
This striking cardigan adds a touch of colour and fashion to any casual or formal outfit. Dress up or down for a versatile, unique look.
This is my favourite piece because it was the most colourful and most experimental of all my pieces.
