We first met Matthew Lenehan at Belfast Metropolitan College when he took part in their in-house competition, using the SDC International Design Competition brief, and where he was announced as the winner. Matthew went on to enter the Irish heat of the SDC International Design Competition. On both occasions the judges were impressed with the standard of his work. We asked him to tell us about his SDC journey so far.
The grand final of the SDC International Design Competition 2016 takes place on November 23rd at Shanghai University of Engineering Science in China. We are pleased to introduce our finalists, all of whom have won the regional heat in their own country. The focus for the competition is colour science education and it is open to fashion and textile design undergraduates in participating countries. The theme for 2016 is ‘Making it Personal’.
Students from Ireland once again demonstrated outstanding talent at the Irish heat of the SDC International Design Competition. Hosted by the National College of Art and Design (NCAD) in Dublin, we welcomed students from Galway Mayo Institute of Technology, Belfast Met, University of Ulster and NCAD for a day of keynote presentations and competition judging.
