Harrods Magazine and the British Fashion Council (BFC) are delighted to announce the winners of the prestigious ‘Star of Tomorrow’ competition; an initiative to support and nurture British talent. Trina Outram and Lewis Firth will join the award-winning Harrods Magazine editorial team in July to complete a three month internship in fashion styling and writing respectively.
A shortlist of ten finalists presented their work at the BFC Headquarters at Somerset House, to a judging panel made up of four leading-industry experts including Deborah Bee, Editor-in-Chief of Harrods Magazine; Anne Tyrrell, Chair of the BFC Colleges Council, Caroline Rush, Chief Executive of British Fashion Council and Jess Cartner-Morley, Fashion Editor of The Guardian.
The now annual competition, open to students at member of colleges of the BFC Colleges Council, aims to scout and nurture emerging British talent, providing a platform to launch their careers in a particularly competitive and dynamic industry. The prize will allow the two winners to get a taste of the world’s most famous department store and its leading publication - the Harrods Magazine.
Deborah Bee, Editor-in-Chief of Harrods Magazine comments “We have been extremely impressed with the calibre of talent, which has been showcased through the ‘Star of Tomorrow’ competition. After careful consideration we have identified two winners, who we believe have the potential for successful careers in the publishing industry. They will be excellent additions to our team.”
