Fashion designers in Sheffield

Have your say

A young fashion accessories designer from the Philippines who has come over to take part in London Fashion Week was thrilled when one of his creations was put in the spotlight at the Brit awards ceremony.

But he missed seeing it because he was up at Sheffield Hallam University with fellow countrymen Neil Felipp San Pedro and Earl Carlo Gariando attending a five-day workshop where they were shown some techniques special to Sheffield. Adanted incorporated stainless steel mesh into a bag he produced - complete with a clasp fashioned from Sheffield teaspoons.
