Winning the first Miroglio Texprint Award: Charlotte Hetheridge

20 February 2015 by Editor

Back in September 2014 at Indigo/PV, the first Miroglio Texprint Award for Digital Innovation was awarded to print designer and Royal College of Art graduate Charlotte Hetheridge.  Besides winning a cash prize, Hetheridge was given the opportunity to go to the Italian print specialist’s company headquarters in Piedmont, Italy, and gain experience and exposure to the marketplace.

The result of this award and collaboration was an exciting hand-painted then digitally printed collection entitled  “Colour as a Language’ inspired by the vibrant colour and pattern seen among tribesmen in Papua New Guinea.

A smart promotional booklet about Charlotte’s collection was on display at Miroglio Textile’s stand at Première Vision Pluriel (February 2015).  Charlotte is now working as a freelance textile designer for Texprint sponsor Marks & Spencer.
