Yolanda Lu, a Year 13 student at New Hall School, Chelmsford, has been shortlisted, from a field of many entries, as a finalist in the prestigious Young Fashion Designer UK award.
Young Fashion Designer UK is an exciting national competition, which was established in 2010. It focuses on enhancing the talent of Young Fashion Designers, and to showcase and promote the exceptional work achieved by students aged 11-18 studying textiles and fashion throughout the United Kingdom. At New Hall, fashion and textiles is encouraged to flourish as part of the flexible Fine Art curriculum.
Yolanda is set upon studying at the London College of Fashion in September, whilst having also secured offers to study Fashion at the University of Creative Arts, Leeds, Edinburgh and Central St Martins. We look forward to seeing more achievements from Yolanda after she leaves the Sixth Form this year, following in the footsteps of immensely successful and creative former New Hall students, such as the world-famous fashion designer, Anya Hindmarch.
Alongside a successful academic programme, New Hall School provides excellent facilities and training for budding sports stars and fantastic music and performing arts provision. The Catholic boarding and day school for students aged 3-18 has a distinctive ‘diamond model structure’ and a strong ethos of pastoral care, which supports students in their endeavours, allowing them to achieve success in a wide variety of fields.
