We’re excited to share the capsule collections from the 2018 Tu Scholarship winners, Jenni Healy and Molly Hopwood, which will be available to purchase at selected Sainsbury’s stores and online at Tu.co.uk from 19th May.
Now in the fourth year of their partnership, Tu and Graduate Fashion Week have given two fashion students a scholarship and a year’s paid employment at Tu.
Molly Hopwood, from the University of Leeds, is the winner of the Menswear scholarship – creating a collection under the guidance of returning mentor Oliver Spencer. The Menswear collection was developed using sustainable materials and techniques across classic denim styles and cotton shirting.
Jenni Healy, graduate from The Manchester School of Art, is the winner of the Womenswear scholarship, mentored by designer duo, Teatum Jones. The Womenswear collection is inspired by all things 60’s, with classic styles updated in bold colours and clashing prints with matching ‘mini-me’ items.
Both graduates were involved in all stages of production: from design and buying trips to meeting suppliers. Under the supervision of their mentors and managers at Tu, both Jenni and Molly have worked to bring their collections to life. Congratulations Molly and Jenni for your fantastic work!
