The Lady Mayoress, Karen Hyman, and the Sheriff’s Lady, Jenny Firth, have chosen the two winning entries in the competition with York College fashion students to design dresses for the Lord Mayor’s Ball.
Launched last November, the competition asked for designs based around the idea of “The wonderful city of York” and today the Lady Mayoress visited York College to announce the winners.
The winning students are:
Jacey Lamerton – chosen by the Lady Mayoress
Stephanie Pack – chosen by the Sheriff’s Lady
The winners will go on to produce the designs and have been presented with two tickets each to the Lord Mayor’s Annual Charity Ball on Saturday 9 February, when their dresses will be worn by the Lady Mayoress and the Sheriff’s Lady.
They will join the hundreds of guests who have already booked tickets for this glittering occasion.
The Lady Mayoress said: “Picking the winners was very difficult as all the designs submitted were extremely creative. I’m really pleased by my choice, however, and am looking forward to wearing the dress at the ball.”
Guests will enjoy a drinks reception and dinner, followed by entertainment from York’s popular party band HUGE, as well as fundraising activities.
Tickets are still available for what will be a glittering evening of dining, entertainment and dancing. Priced at £50 each, contact the civic office on [email protected] or telephone (01904) 551011.
