The Convergence Brand is proud to share that this is now a multi-award winning collection!
During the Degree Show Exhibition at the University of Derby, for all creative courses, Lucy Taylor was awarded the Vice Chancellor's Award Commendation for her exhibition of work for the debut collection for Convergence.
A few weeks later, the collection was first shown at the Derby Theater as part of the Graduate Fashion Show 2019. Lady Laura Cavendish, Countess of Burlington and Sarah Mower MBE of the British Fashion Council and journalist for Vogue were both invited to judge the awards for best collection and portfolios. We are very happy to announce that Lucy won the best Portfolio, which showcased her work for Convergence Resort 2020, a previous project for Autism Awareness, and third project for the next Convergence collection. This collection for Convergence also won the runner-up best collection, and Lucy was awarded the Course Leader's Award for her work throughout the year considering everyone including those outside of the mainstream.
Following this, the collection will be entered into competitions to further increase publicity for the brand. There is also ongoing work on the website and Instagram page @ConvergenceX to show the development and final outcomes of the collection. It is a very exciting time for the brand and research is being undertaken into future collections, collaborations and for the construction of the online shop!
