An aspiring Wishaw fashion designer had her work highly commended at an awards ceremony in Aberdeen.

Chloe McKinstry, who studies fashion and textiles at Robert Gordon University, stitched her way to second spot for a piece showcasing her creativity and technological skills.

Chloe’s project was based on the contrast between man-made vs nature, specifically looking at the architecture within the north-east and how this contrasts with the trees and other natural areas.

Delighted Chloe said: “To be selected as this year’s runner-up for the Tailors Career Enhancement award of 2019, is a huge honour and a great achievement for myself.

“I am extremely thankful to have been given this opportunity and I am excited to be able spend the cash prize furthering my knowledge and skills within fashion and textiles.”
