Final year BA (Hons) Fashion Design student Natasha Undrell has been named runner-up in the 2015 George Childrenswear Competition at Graduate Fashion Week earlier this month.

This year's competition theme was British Heritage. Natasha's designs were based on the popular children's novel The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett. All Natasha's prints, graphics and silhouettes were inspired by the animals, characters and landscapes featured in the book and the 1993 film.

Natasha said: "I decided to enter the competition because it gave me the opportunity to design for children, which I am passionate about, and the prize was a job within the George design team which is an amazing opportunity."

As runner-up in the competition, Natasha won a two month paid placement with George. Her competition work was also displayed on the George stand at Graduate Fashion Week. She said: "I am extremely pleased to have been announced as the runner-up in the competition as I have been given a paid design placement, which is a great way to start my career after graduating in the summer."

"I thoroughly enjoyed being part of the competition because it developed my skills as a designer and gave me valuable experience for the future."
