Last Friday Gloucestershire Gateway Trust were among a huge crowd gathered at Gloucester Cathedral to watch the grand final of the Wearable Art Competition, organised by Art Couture Painswick (ACP).
Mark Gale of GGT said: "We were delighted to provide support for this project at the outset to help it get off the ground. I'm sure this creative trade route through Gloucestershire is going to grow and grow!"
Sarah Dunning, Chair of GGT business partner Westmorland was also proud to be on the panel of judges for the competition:
"It was an amazing experience to judge the Wearable Art Competition. It was full of talent, wild ideas and people having a wonderful time in the dramatic setting of Gloucester Cathedral. It was a real privilege to be part of the judging panel."
Jules Ellison of Make it Studios in Stroud was Open Category Winner, with her earth protector entry 'Pollywood', inspired by lawyer Polly Higgins and the campaign 'Stop Ecocide: Change the Law'.
