Two fashion design students from King’s Ely Sixth Form have gained places to study at a prestigious London college.

Connie Wynn and Emanuella Tamimi were two of only 20 students to be offered a place for next year’s hand embroidery degree programme at Royal School of Needlework, based at Hampton Court Palace.

Graduates go on to enjoy careers in haute couture, costume, film, theatre, ­conservation, restoration, teaching and research.

Alison Rhodes, King’s director of art, said: “When exhibiting King’s Ely students’ fashion design work at Alexandra Palace last year, school directors spotted our A-level work and invited us to visit the school and discuss the further education opportunities available.

“Connie and Emanuella were then interviewed for the degree programme and were offered places.
