Purvaai's Textile Design Competition Winners Announced Jun 08, 2012

As a part of its three day selling exhibition at CraftCentral in Clerkenwell, Purvaai hosted a Champagne Reception in honour of the participants and winners of its very first Textile Design Competition on June 7, 2012.

The entry which won first place, by Chloe Hamill of Manchester School of Art, featured India’s national bird, the Peacock – a favourite of the erstwhile Indian royals, whereas runner up Laura Andrews of University of Brighton, was heavily inspired by Indian art and architecture, with geometric patterns and bright colours figuring prominently in her designs. For further images of the Award Ceremony and Champagne Reception visit our Facebook page.
