The Worshipful Company of Cordwainers announce Cordwainers National Footwear Student Awards will go ahead despite the Coronavirus emergency.


Whilst numerous fashion industry and graduate award events are cancelled this year, the Worshipful Company of Cordwainers has announced that the Cordwainers National Footwear Student of the Year award will still go ahead. With the awards team, students and judges all working remotely, the Company is taking advantage of digital technology to ensure that the students can still benefit from this career-defining event.


The Master of the Company, Nigel Easton expressed his delight that “we are able to run our prestigious annual competition in spite of the restrictions imposed by the Coronavirus emergency. The Cordwainers National Footwear Student of the Year Awards are the embodiment of the Company’s core purpose, demonstrating the Company’s commitment to supporting both the footwear industry and student footwear designers.”


He continues, “This year students from the three footwear universities (De Montfort University, the University of Northampton and London College of Fashion at the University of the Arts, London) will submit their portfolios digitally, our judges will deliberate via email and video conference, and we will be awarding almost £12,000 in prizes as usual, including a £5,000 prize for the winner. We are pleased to be able to continue to celebrate the talent emerging from British universities especially at a time when final year students are facing disruption to their studies and degree awards.”


The winners of this year’s awards will be announced in June and the Cordwainers’ Company is hoping to mark the achievements of the talented students with an awards ceremony in the autumn, which will bring together some of the finest names in British footwear. Previous attendees have included Jimmy Choo, Rupert Sanderson, Sophia Webster, and Nicholas Kirkwood, as well as representatives from John Lobb, Start Rite, Pentland Brands, Jeffery-West, Cheaney Shoes and Foster & Son, among others.
