Northumbria students to put their stamp on Dr. Martens Newcastle

Three students from Northumbria University’s School of Design will see their work on display in the Dr. Martens Newcastle store window.

Megan Bramhald, Vicky McMenigall and Sophie Leigh are the winners of a creative design competition launched in October by the British design brand.

The students held a catwalk show of their designs on Wednesday December 11 in the University’s Design School.

Alongside the menswear and womenswear creations, designs and fabric swatches were showcased by the students specialising in textiles and knitwear.

Dr. Martens’ UK retail marketing manager Amy Nelson, said: “I’m over the moon to have won the live project for such a timeless brand. The #STANDFORSOMETHING campaign carries such a strong message expressing self-pride no matter who you are, your age and what your individual style is – Dr. Martens resonates with anyone who’s into popular culture.”

Northumbria University BA (Hons) Fashion Design senior lecturer, Gael Henry, added: “It’s been a highly successful collaboration that’s concluded with a very lively presentation, which we hope the Dr. Martens team enjoyed as much as we did.

“The students responded brilliantly to the Dr. Martens brief, in particular drawing inspiration from sub-culture and music. The designs were perfectly conceived for its high street market and I know how much enthusiasm and effort the students put into producing them.”
