On the first day of London Fashion Week we proudly unveiled the winners of a collaboration that paired LCF's future generation of fashion designers with the iconic crime-fighting superheroes The Powerpuff Girls.

Third year students Cara Edden and Hana Hussein won the £3,000 first prize. This winning design encapsulated the ethos of The Powerpuff Girls through strong contrasts of silhouettes and exaggerated layers, while ensuring that the playfulness of the brand was represented with colour and embellishments.
Second prize of £1,500 was awarded to Laura Ubeda, Angelo La Barbera, Sofia Marino and Olivia Rubens for their ability to translate the Girls’ different personalities to design by using varying textiles, prints and fabrics. The £1,000 third prize went to In (Tony) Lee, Faye Arguelles, Polina Gorkovenko and Thanakhom Sittiarttakorn for their incredible use of techniques which included 3D embroidery as well as laser-cut etching and digital print.
Congratulations to all the students involved in the collaboration and a big thank you to DJ Yinka for providing music for the event, and out friends at Adidas for the footwear.
