Epson announces its two Outstanding Use of Print in Textiles Award winners

Molly-Mae Brissett-Haigh with her Blessing in Disguise fashion collection

Two graduates have been announced as winners of Epson’s New Designers Outstanding Use of Print in Textiles prize.

First prize went to Molly-Mae Brissett-Haigh, a graduate from the Textile Design facility at the University of Edinburgh for her highly-innovative Blessing in Disguise fashion collection, with Glasgow School of Art graduate, Lucy Hope, also taking away the award for her Happi fashionwear for children and adults, inspired by a unique blending of play, imagination, creativity and colour.

Heather Kendle, market development manager, Epson Europe, said: “Finding just two winners was a challenging task, but the judging panel all felt both Molly-Mae and Lucy really stood out as they had each, in their own diverse way, designed highly creative, inspiring and intelligent fashion collections with great stories behind them.”

As part of the awards package, both winners will now be invited to participate in an Epson design project, creating a collection of interior décor or fashion designs using dye sublimation printing, which will then be showcased on an Epson stand at a trade exhibition over the next 12 months.
