The Worshipful Company of Cordwainers
We can’t Believe that a year has past already. Once again we were delighted to attend the Corwainers awards for the 5th year running.
‘Be passionate about your work’, said keynote speaker Camilla Elphick and passion, dedication and imagination shone through the entrant’s submissions.
This year Katie Greenyer our creative director Judged the competition alongside Guy West who is one half of the award winning Northamptonshire footwear brand Jeffery-West and Atalanta Weller who is a graduate of the Cordwainers College and an award winning designer with a strong celebrity following, from the likes of Lady GaGa and Jessie J.
This years Guest Judge was Camilla Elphick who has worked for Nicholas Kirkwood and Charlotte Olympia.
We were blown away by the work and all the entry’s this year but there can only be one winner. This year the trophy went to Barbara Fiedler Weirszewska from London College of Fashion with 2nd going to Yunfei Ma London College of Fashion and 3rd going to Edina McClelland De Montfort University.
