PARIS — Texprint 2003, which ran as part of Indigo at the Parc d’Expositions last week, once again displayed the textile design works of recent graduates from British colleges.
In all, 24 artists exhibited their work in knits, prints, wovens and embroidery, as well as combined applications and mixed media. Prizes were awarded to the graduates in five categories: Weave, Knit, Print, Color and Breaking New Ground.
The winners, respectively, were: Angharad McLaren from Glasgow School of Art, Jemma Sykes from the Royal College of Art, Photini Papas from Chelsea College of Art & Design, Natasha Lee from the Royal College of Art and Afet Halil from Chelsea College of Art & Design. Designer Zandra Rhodes, who recently founded the Fashion & Textile Museum in London, presented the prizes.
“This is just a great opportunity for graduates,” she said. “You know, if you look at a garment, it’s often the fabric that says the whole story and the fabric designer rarely gets credit. That’s something I think needs to change.”
“I was touched by the fact that she lost her father, really before his time, and it was a real shock. She had two young children, she was married and she was expecting that she would have her own life for a good 25 years,” said Claire Foy about playing a young Queen Elizabeth in Netflix’s The Crown.

“It transcends the genre that is you think of a sci-fi show — you don’t expect it to be so profound or emotionally riveting,” Evan Rachel Wood told WWD of her Emmy nominated role in Westworld. styled by @samanthamcmillen_stylist 📸 @emmanmontalvan #emmys2017 #wwdeye
