LCF supported this year’s National Citizen Service (NCS) T-shirt contest – a competition open to thousands of NCS grads across the UK, to design next year’s t shirt. The t-shirt which will be given to and worn by all NCS participants in the new year. Hundreds of people entered the competition, and the entries were narrowed down to 10 finalists. The final entries were then looked at by an expert panel of judges including LCF’s Rob Philips – Creative Director for the School of Design and Technology.
Yuhan and Kyle were picked as the two finalists and they came to LCF to work with Rob Phillips, and two LCF graduates to bring their designs to life. On the day they also met YouTube vlogger Jim Chapman, before the designs went to a final public vote on Instagram.
The winner was Manoel who won a London College of Fashion short course. His design will be worn by all NCS participants in 2018. Manoel is currently studying graphic design but he told us he wants to study fashion in the future, so watch this space!
