Children design dress for the Queen

Youngsters have designed outfits for the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh to celebrate the Diamond Jubilee.

Winners of the design competition even got to see their work made into full-size outfits to mark the Queen’s visit to Bromley in May.

Bromley Council organised the challenge for primary schools in the area as part of its project entitled London as a Global Centre of Fashion, which includes exhibitions, displays and interactive installations.

Councillor Peter Morgan, executive member for renewal and recreation at the council, said: “Seeing the creativity and talent from our young people is truly inspiring and reminds us that Bromley’s cultural heritage is rich during this significant year.

“People of all ages can get involved in the once in a lifetime celebrations, so why not come along to the special event in May, see the designs for yourself and take part in the festivities in the town centre.”

The winning designs in the competition were from pupils at Burnt Ash Primary and St Vincent’s Catholic Primary Schools.

The Queen’s winning outfit consisted of a blue diamond themed dress, with matching hat and handbag. The Duke’s winning outfit had a navy blue, gold and black theme with a top hat.

Students from Bishop Justice Secondary School won first, second and third prizes in a competition entitled The Influence of Music on Fashion. Their work is also being put on display in the town centre.

Live music, roving entertainers and much more is being planned in the town centre for the Queen’s visit on May 15.
