The Golden Shears Award
The Golden Shears Contest supports the tailors of the future by rewarding tailoring students and apprentices from throughout the United Kingdom.
This year’s event was held on Monday, March 20th at Merchant Taylor's Hall in London. Dormeuil's own Patrick Bunting was appointed as a ‘steward' to look after judge Jodie Kidd for the evening.
Guest judges David Gandy (Super model), Oliver Spencer (Fashion designer), Joe Wright (Film director), Bill Prince (GQ editor), and Jodie Kidd (TV presenter) awarded each entrant with marks for technical skill, design, cutting, and tailoring.
The finalists were whittled down from hundreds of entrants to just 25 for the final.
Following a cat walk presentation, the Golden Shears Awards for 2017 were decided.
