Together with other Royal High School Bath girls, Francesca Butt and Amelia Matcham, Gracie was selected for the final of this exciting fashion design competition from Eton Design to design a red carpet dress using the company’s selection of furnishing fabrics and trimmings.

They attended a photocall with legendary interior designer Nina Campbell at Eton Design’s prestigious Walcot Street showrooms on 15th April.

As part of Bath in Fashion 2013 Eton Design set out to search for a fashion designer of the future. Gracie walked away with her own sewing machine and pattern making tools, the equipment needed for a student embarking on a course in fashion design.

Nicholas Sheridan, owner of Eton Design said, “In the world of interiors there is a close collaboration with fashion designer. Eton Design is keen to encourage young designers to show off their creative skills. As a relatively new business to the city, we felt that this would be a great way to get involved with Bath in Fashion.”

The finalists have had their amazing designs developed and made up into outfits by professional pattern makers and seamstresses. These outfits are being exhibited for two months at the Eton Design Showrooms from 13thApril.
