WHEN fashion student Emily Streatfield sat down to design a collection of new clothes, she could never have expected it would lead her to China.

But that’s exactly what happened after the 25-year-old’s work was chosen to be part of a British Council graduate show in Beijing.

Emily, who studies at the University of Portsmouth, said she was thrilled her Encircle Expose Echo collection had been picked and she said she had enjoyed her visit to China for the exhibition.

She said: ‘I was very excited when I found out that my final collection had been chosen.

‘It’s an amazing opportunity to showcase my work internationally and to travel and experience a new culture.’

Emily said her designs were inspired by natural erosion and modern structural patterns in underground environments.

She said: ‘I explored the difference between the London Underground and Cheddar Gorge Caves to inform my designs.

‘Through careful observation of the patterns which occur both organically in nature as well as those engineered by man, I examined not only the juxtaposition of old and new patterns, but of the encounter between past and present.’

Emily’s course leader, Tom Clulee, said: ‘Emily’s collection is the result of four years’ hard work on her behalf. It is an imaginative and personal response that really sums up what we stand for here in Portsmouth – innovation, commitment and excellence.

‘Emily fully deserves all the opportunities that will come her way and we are immensely proud that she is flying the flag for Portsmouth.’
