Florence Angelica Colson who graduated with a First Class degree in BA (Hons) Printed Textiles and Surface Pattern Design has won the 2013 Texprint Lululemon award at a prize ceremony at Première Vision Pluriel, Paris on September 18, 2013.
The award, which consists of a three month paid placement with Lululemon Athletica at the company’s headquarters in Vancouver, Canada plus a £1000 prize, was judged by Deanne Schweitzer from the activewear company.
Deanne praised Florence’s colour scheme: “Florence’s dedication to black and white in new ways is beautiful. All of Florence's designs have playful energy and at the same time could be taken very seriously. Black and white is very important to Lululemon so this will be a very fun collaboration.”
