A woman from Godmanchester had her designs showcased at London Fashion week after she was selected from among a group of hopefuls to showcase her collection.
Linda Blissett quit her job in retail to pursue her fashion career and was rewarded with a slot of the prestigious show on February 16.
The 44-year-old said: “The theme for the designs was Clash of the Clans. I cut up and used up-cycled pieces of tartan fabrics, mixed them up and sewed them together to represent the coming together of the clans that fought at the Battle of Culloden, some of whom fought against each other, and aftermath of the battle when tartan was banned. The mixture of tartans together also represented the loss of the clans time”
