TWO fashion and textiles students have been hand-picked by Marks & Spencer to sell their work at the Portsmouth shop.

Phoebe Quare, 21 and Olivia Ria Walsh, 20, who both study at the city’s university, created four original designs and hand-printed them on to a range of limited edition T-shirts.

They will be sold to raise money for the chain’s nominated charity, Breakthrough Breastcancer.

James Ash, commercial manager at the Portsmouth store, said: ‘The University of Portsmouth students have done us proud, producing four bespoke designs and turning around a consignment of 20 hand-printed T-shirts in just two days.’
