Kate Woodcock-Fowles is set to follow in the footsteps of the late, great fashion designer Alexander McQueen after securing a place at one of the world’s leading design institutions.
The talented teenager has beaten off thousands to secure a spot at Central St Martins College of Art and Design, the most prestigious fashion and art college in the country.
Kate, a student at Mount St Mary’s College, in Spinkill, on the outskirts of Sheffield, has been accepted onto the foundation diploma in art and design course where she will specialise in graphic design.
The 17-year old from Thorpe Salvin, Worksop, South Yorkshire, whose inspirations in the fashion world are designers Miu Miu and Karl Lagerfield, said: “I still cannot believe it and I am so excited. It is what I have always wanted to do.”
Central St Martins is a constituent college of the University of the Arts London. The school has an international reputation as one of the world’s leading design institutions, and is renowned for its fashion courses.
