Murray Uniforms, based in Coventry, has recently joined up with the UK’s top new university in Coventry, to support their ambitious young talent in Fashion Design.

We created an exciting competition for students to research colour and submit an article for judging by our own in-house fashion designers – ‘from digital to tangible’ and we were overwhelmed by the number of entries we received.

The entries were of such high standards we couldn’t narrow it down to just three winners, so we had to choose four!  The overall winning article by Emma Pepperdine, called ‘How do we really see colour?’ investigated the complexities of colour and how our own personal influences can impact the colours we see. 2nd place went to Emily Shum for ‘The Colour Connection’, 3rd place to Georgia Lewandowski for ‘Pantone Politics’ and 4th place to Mia Lambert for ‘The future of colour in children’s educational environment’.

Coventry Workshop

As well as a receiving a voucher from a store of their choice, finalists were invited to join the Murray management team for a day of mentoring at their offices in Coventry, where they learned about everything from the principles of business process to marketing and presentation skills.

“We couldn’t have asked for a more talented and engaged group of students to spend the day mentoring.  We can’t wait to do it all again soon!” said Ana Dieaconu, Head of Design at Murrays.
