I've done it!
Fashion graduate Grace Cross received the learning opportunity of a lifetime when she won the 19th Annual International Sponsorship Award, allowing her to study at London's Central Saint Martin's College of Art and Design.
"My favourite designers, Christopher Kane and Stella McCartney, studied at the prestigious Central Saint Martin's institute and to have the opportunity to train there myself is truly amazing. I love that fashion is a form of expression and I love how wearing something beautiful can make you feel wonderful inside."
