The winning entry for a dress designed from e-textiles for Key Stage 4 and Key Stage 5 design and technology students is complete.
Presenter Kate Bellingham set a challenge to KS5 and KS5 design and technology students to design her a dress made from e-textiles, to wear as she hosts the British Engineering Excellence Awards at the Globe Theatre, London.
The winning design, by A-level product design student Abigail, has now been completed and Kate is wearing it at the awards show.
