The winners of the 2019 TexSelect® Competition

As it does every year in September, Première Vision Designs has joined forces with the TexSelect® competition, of which it is one of the main sponsors, celebrating its 50th anniversary this year.

The TexSelect® competition rewards young designers from British textile schools.

Before the show, a jury of professionals (design school teachers, textile and fashion industry players) met in London to select the winners from among the 24 finalists.
