Second year students have been working over several months on a live project with Freedom for Topshop. The project culminated last week with the judging event at CSM. All of the students have developed a range of designs and prototypes. A panel of judges including jewellery designers from Freedom, buyers from Topshop and fashion journalists, selected five finalists – Johanna Galefske, Lilli Murphy-Johnson, Evie Armstrong Clarke, Laila Hmiddouche and Ella Stern. Evie was selected as the overall winner and will have her designs put into production and sold through Topshop stores around the country and internationally. There will be a launch event to coincide with London fashion week and a display inspired by Evie’s jewellery will be created for a window in Topshop’s flagship Oxford Street store.




As an extension of our collaboration with the V&A, responding to the current exhibition Pearls, 2nd year students have organised an event for tonights Friday late, asking for a pearl for a pearl. In exchange for a pearl of wisdom, members of the public will be given a limited edition jewellery piece containing a single cultured pearl, designed and made by BA Jewellery design students.

The event is free, come down from 6.30.
