Following a competition held in Great Britain, design student Janine Clark was declared Alfa Romeo Young Designer of the Year 2012. The award ceremony took place in Edinburgh alongside a catwalk show held by fashion expert Brix Smith-Start.

Twenty-two year-old Janine was chosen by a panel of expert judges in partnership with the St Andrews Charity Fashion Show. She created a four-piece collection, taking inspiration from the Alfa MiTo color palette and using a concept of reinvented 1940s silhouettes to create her Autumn/Winter catwalk trend.

All five finalists were asked to focus on the Alfa Romeo brand as an expression through fashion, with particular attention to the theme ‘unearthed’ – a concept of rediscovering the past.

On accepting her award, Janine said: “I’m very proud to have won this amazing award. There have been highs and lows throughout the entire process but I’ve loved every minute of it and am overjoyed to see my final collection on the catwalk.

“The opposition was fierce and I just can’t believe I am the winner. What I hoped to achieve throughout all of my designs was to use subtle details which captured the sophistication, beautiful sculptures and the Italian style of Alfa Romeo.”

Damien Dally from Alfa Romeo UK presented Janine with her award, which included $1500 in prize money and funding to produce a clothing range for the Muir Maxwell Trust.
