Feast your eyes on the entries for the AVA mannequin competition at this year’s Graduate Fashion Week!

Well done to all the students who took part – it’s amazing what you can all do with some spare magazines, scraps of paper and AVA balloons! Caryn Franklin, c0-founder of All Walks Beyond the Catwalk, will be judging the competition, and we’ll be announcing the winner on our blog next week. The winning team will receive £150 of Urban Outfitters  vouchers (many thanks to the kind folks at UO!) AND a selection of AVA fashion books for their college library. In the meantime, take a look at the entries! Which is your favourite??

  1. Congratulations to Emily and Alisa – Caryn Franklin has picked team 7 as the winners! She said: ‘Team 7 looks the most accomplished. The proportions are very pleasing and the colour paneling and gradation is effective.’ Well done! We will be in touch to arrange your prize. Thanks to everyone else who took part. We were very impressed by all the entries!
