Footwear Awards 2017: Judgement Day

Posted by: JHM Date: 12 May 2017

With the fourth Cordwainer Footwear Student of the Year Award nearly upon us, we were delighted to welcome the judges to the Cordwainer office for judgement day. 

Katie Greenyer, Atalanta Weller and Guy West face the difficult task of sifting through 15 portfolios – five each from the ‘footwear universities’, De Montfort, Northampton and Cordwainers at the University of the Arts, London. The students face a nail-biting wait to see who will be named Cordwainer Footwear Student of the Year 2017. This prestigious award is accompanied by a significant prize of £5,000. Past winners have used it to fund further education in footwear design or to start their own footwear design business.

The Cordwainer Footwear Student of the Year Ceremony is kindly supported by the companies and institutions below.
