Lucie Jones, who represented the United Kingdom performed her new song entry ‘Never Give Up On You’ at this year’s Eurovision Competition, wearing a stunning ensemble designed exclusively by Havering College’s previous fashion student Lesley de Freitas. Lucie was also styled on the day by current student Tsvetelina Yordanova, who is completing a Level 3 Extended Diploma in Fashion.

Since the Eurovision Competition Finals aired on the 13th May, the singer’s stunning dresses have been making headlines in the media. The talented students’ designs have had full exposure at the live competition and also in the official promo video with original pictures taken by the BBC quoting ‘another beautiful dress’.

This has been huge recognition and motivation for the fashion students at Havering College’s £6 million Centre of Creative Arts and 2017 has been a year full of successes. Tsvetelina’s journey at the College continues to grow as she commented “I get the opportunity to be around inspirational people, it is really exciting and I am so happy to do this every day”.
