A King’s Ely Sixth Form student has secured a work experience placement with legendary British fashion designer, Bruce Oldfield OBE.

Aspiring fashion designer Annabel McCraith, 17, is excited to be working with the Bruce Oldfield design team in Knightsbridge, London, over the Christmas holidays.

Annabel, who has been at King’s Ely since joining in Year 9, is from Bassingbourn, near Royston. She is currently studying fine art, textiles and photography at A Level, and says she cannot wait to get stuck in to her work experience placement.

Bruce Oldfield is best known for his couture occasion wear and his clients include Sienna Miller, Barbra Streisand, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Diana Ross, Emmanuelle Seigner, Rihanna and Joan Collins.
