Creative Skillset to award fashion student bursaries

Creative Skillset has launched the Anne Tyrrell student design awards for students in their second year of accredited fashion courses.

The awards, established in the memory of fashion and interior designer Tyrrell, who passed away in February, provide a financial sum to support students with their final show. 

The winners of the inaugural awards will be selected from accredited Tick fashion degree courses. The awards will be judged by members of Creative Skillset’s Fashion Industry Panel, led by designer Betty Jackson CBE, who is a Creative Skillset board member and was a close friend of Anne Tyrrell. 

Tyrrell’s estate has bequeathed a sum for three years and Creative Skillset is calling for members of the fashion industry to support it going forward.

Creative Skillset has also accredited four more BA (Hons) fashion courses with its Tick mark, which it awards to degree courses that it says provide the best preparation for a career in the creative industries. They will be presented at an event in London on December 1. The new courses are based at the Arts University of Bournemouth, University of the West of England, University of Salford and Norwich University of the Arts.

They join existing Tick accredited courses at Birmingham City University, Kingston University, Manchester School of Art, Northbrook College, Nottingham Trent University, University of Huddersfield and University of Westminster.
