SDC EC in association with the B D Somani Institute of Art and Fashion Technology in Mumbai, India organised this event which was attended by faculty, students and invited guests.
The author and motivational speaker Tony Gaskins said “If you don’t build your dream someone will hire you to help build theirs.” The message was create a niche for yourself and be the best in your field.
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’.
