Sheffield student joins the big league

Have your say

SHEFFIELD Hallam University student Chelsey Crossland hopes to turn rags into riches after reaching the final of a prestigious national fashion contest.

The 22-year-old, from Rawmarsh, will see her designs showcased on the catwalk at the FAD competition, to be held as part of London Fashion Week later this month.

Chelsey has created a range of designs from thrown away or waste materials, giving them a new lease of life, and has made the final 15 from more than 100 entries.
