Congratulations to Senial Jaishani who has won the Enliven Fashion Project 2015 competition, which was judged by award-winning British designer Mia Nisbet. The Enliven Fashion Project prize aims to promote creative talent alongside charitable causes and sustainable design practices.

The postgraduate student from Winchester School of Art was one of six designers selected for the project, and each designer transformed items from various charity shops to create brand new outfits.

Senial created an outfit using items she sourced from Eastleigh’s British Heart Foundation charity shop.

Senial’s outfit was created using two mens shirts which she deconstructed and positioned over a women’s blouse, which she held together using Kantha (a type of embroidery from South Asia).

Speaking about Senial’s entry, fashion designer Mia Nisbet said: “I love the concept behind Senial’s work and the fact that a traditional Indian craft was used to make her garment. The finished piece looks very well-made and well thought out. It is fabulously unique but still perfectly wearable.”

Huge congratulations to Senial on this wonderful achievement.
