Teresa Alade: Romantic Retro Reminisce

Name: Teresa Alade

Age: 14

From: Dagenham, Essex

Design Title: Romantic Retro Reminisce

How do you feel about being a finalist in the 2016 Fashion Design Competition?: I feel extremely honoured and grateful to be selected as a finalist; I honestly didn’t believe that I would be selected. I checked the website and refreshed repeatedly to make sure this was genuine.

What does ‘style’ mean to you?: Style means confidence and effortless mannerism in the way you present yourself to the world that is timeless.

Who is your style icon?: My style icon is Princess Grace Kelly of Monaco. She had a great presence and style which portrayed her confidence and elegance. My favourite outfit that Princess Grace wore was the beautiful blue dress in How to Catch a Thief. It was versatile with the sheer scarf attached to the dress which gave such a modern appeal.

Please summarise the concept behind your design in one sentence: My design is a 1940s inspired formal two- piece that is styled in a modern twist.
