New Designers is the UK’s leading graduate design show and the most important event for emerging designers. The exhibition continues to be a highly respected and successful platform for bringing new design talent and commerce together.
Wilcom Europe is a proud sponsor of the event for the third year. The Wilcom Associate Prize consists of a free licence to Wilcom's EmbroideryStudio e4 Designing software. It is granted to the university that exhibits great digital embroidery and demonstrates an understanding of application and working with different sub-straights.
Visit us at Stand A4. It will be setup as an interactive workshop, so students, course leaders and lectures can try out the software then sample it on an embroidery machine. Favourable educational pricing and tailored courses for individual universities and higher education facilities will be offered throughout the show.
EmbroideryStudio e4 is used to create embellishments on much of the world’s fashion wear, textiles and interiors. With a reputation for excellence, Wilcom has become the world’s choice for ease‑of‑use, quality and service.

2015's Wilcom Associate Prize winner, Alice Selwood talks about how winning the prize accelerated her career.
"I have been using Wilcom’s EmbroideryStudio for over 2 years, starting out with just a short two-day course teaching me the basics of stitch construction, layer manipulation and photography & vector file conversion.
Now I am a successful entrepreneur producing collections of luxury soft furnishing interiors and more to Harrods and featured on the WGSN trend forecast for digital embroidery within fashion and interiors.
Winning an award with Wilcom has been a huge highlight and kick-started my career into the industry I love."
