MIAL’S SELECTION PANEL A/W 2015 COLLECTION – BECCA PELLY-FRY
The submissions deadline for our Autumn/Winter 2015 Collection has been extended, and to go along with this fantastic news we are thrilled to be able to announce our second selection panel member who will be selecting the artists and designers for this collection.
Submissions for Made in Arts London’s Autumn/Winter 2015 Collection are open until October 4th, and are open to all UAL students and recent graduates.
For each of our collections we invite a panel of industry experts to select our next collection. The panel is different every time and has in the past included the likes of Kathleen Soriano, Dominic Wilcox and Natalie Brett amongst others. Unlike other selection panels, our panel not only looks at every submission but also provides feedback, providing advice to those applying on their practice and submission.
Having already announced the first member of our selection panel as Max Fraser, we are over the moon to be able to say that Becca Pelly-Fry will be joining him to select our Autumn/Winter 2015 Collection.
