Savile Row apprentice wins tailoring award Golden Shears

Emily Squires, an apprentice from Savile Row tailor Henry Poole, has scooped this year’s Golden Shears award for tailoring students and apprentices.

Squires impressed a panel of celebrity judges including actress Joanna Lumley, chef Raymond Blanc, Nick Hewer from BBC1 series The Apprentice, fashion journalist Hilary Alexander and fashion retailer Lloyd Johnson of Johnson & Johnson.

The winning design consisted of a navy velvet dress coat worn over a pair of formal trousers.

The final catwalk show was held at The Merchant Taylor’s Hall in London last night (March 18) where Squires was presented with her prize - a cheque and a set of Golden Shears - by model David Gandy.

The award is sponsored by the Merchant Taylors’ Company.
