Cara McAleenan from Ballynahinch is taking the BTEC Level 3 Foundation Diploma in Art and Design at SRC, Newry and along with Lurgan SRC student Hannah Warwick will each now have to make a wedding dress they designed as part of the competition.

Young Irish designers from all over Ireland were asked to send in a mood board outlining their designs for a wedding dress for the chance to be crowned Young Designer of the Year onstage at the Wedding Journal Show.

The top 5 finalists wedding dresses will be worn by a professional model and showcased on the runways of the Wedding Journal Shows in Belfast and Dublin in January and February 2018. 

A celebrity panel of fashion judges will then choose the one winning dress and its designer will be named as the Young Designer of the Year 2018!
