Our esteemed guests including Zandra Rhodes and Angela Harvey, Lord Mayor of Westminster, were also each given a chance to vote for their favourite design of the evening.

Once the showing for each finalists design was completed, a short interval was had in preparation for Hand & Lock’s very own collection. Association D’Ermites – a mystical fusion of astrology and ancient mythology themed embroidered pieces. An uproarious round of applause followed the Hand & Lock collection; with guests, judges and finalists eagerly awaiting the announcement of the vote count.

Without further ado, the winners and their exquisite designs are as follows. Cordially announced by the Lord of Westminster herself:

 1st Place – Lilla Balasz
