This exciting competition will celebrate the Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty exhibition at the V&A, recognising the continuing influence of Alexander McQueen on current and future fashion creatives and professionals.

To enter, students must create a drawing, inspired by an Alexander McQueen collection, moment, or specific outfit. 4-6 drawings will then be selected by a panel of judges and reproduced as open edition colour prints that will then be sold in the V&A shop online. The competition is open to all undergraduates from all courses, so don’t be shy to enter!

A final selection will be made by Claire Wilcox, LCF Chair in Fashion Curation and V&A Curator for Alexander McQueen exhibition, Annabelle Dodds, V&A Buyer for the Shop and Ligaya Salazar, Director of the Fashion Space Gallery at LCF.

The award to the winners will be £250 and professional and public exposure, as every submitted entry will be seen by V&A Curatorial and Commercial teams, Alexander McQueen creative and commercial teams, then sold in the V&A shop and viewed by all shop visitors. The student’s name will appear on the print.

The competition will be open until 16 January and you can find out more information by going to MyArts > Careers and Employability > LCF Careers > Competitions.

The winners will be notified at the end of January and the prints will be made in time for the exhibition opening on 14 March. They will be sold throughout the duration of the show.
