Jessica McCormack designs trophy for
Fashion Fringe at Covent Garden

London-based jewellery designer Jessica McCormack has created the 2010 Fashion Fringe at Covent Garden trophy that 2010 Chairman John Galliano will present to the chosen winner at the catwalk show at London Fashion Week on 18 September. Jessica McCormack has created a trophy depicting a golden arrow that represents the winner, flanked by two silver arrowheads depicting the two finalists. The three spokes represent three outlooks – the past, the present and the future as well as expression, versatility and the pure joy of creativity. The golden arrowhead is emblematic of the world of possibilities awaiting the winner – pointing them towards future success. The stem of endeavour is a diamond trail leading to the arrowheads, symbolising the obstacles to overcome and victories to be savoured on the journey to success. The completed trophy is valued at over £10,000. Jessica has recently launched her latest collection named ‘XIV’ and her jewellery is available in Dover Street Market, Pollyanna and Luisa Via Roma.
