My home town of Liverpool is famous for many reasons; it is to be UK's Capital of Culture in 2008 and is the birthplace of the Beatles. Now, I am delighted to announce that the winner of the UK's Project Catwalk -- shown in March, was Kirsty Doyle from Liverpool. In her third year at fashion design school in Liverpool, consistently hard-working and original, let's hope Kirsty makes the most of her fashion career.

Kirsty's Burgeoning Fashion Career

The Art Institute
Kirsty Doyle is a down to earth young woman with a great deal of talent. After winning the first challenge on Project Catwalk, she was consistently impressive throughout the series. After reaching the final three, she was given six months and 4,000 to come up with a 12-piece collection for February's London Fashion Week. Remaining in Liverpool to continue her training at Liverpool John Moore's fashion design school, Kirsty made the 5 hour round trip down to London twice a week. Her hard work paid off when she was announced winner in March.

Even before this enormous boost, Kirsty had already started her fashion career by launching her own label, Rapscallion, with a school friend. Winning Project Catwalk really takes her fashion career to the next level; prizes include 20,000, a spread in Elle Magazine and, best of all, mentorship with the design team at Topshop -- THE high street fashion retailer in the UK.

There is No Substitute For Fashion Design School

Right now, however, in her final year at Fashion Design School, Kirsty needs to concentrate on preparing for graduation. But then hard work has never been a problem for Kirsty. It is this can-do attitude, and a quality fashion design school, that you need for a successful fashion career.
