A Fenland fashion student has won a prestigious competition after she designed a pair of gloves fit for the Queen.

It is hoped the design by Liz Foicik, 35, from March, could be manufactured at a later date, and a copy of the design has been sent to the Royal household.

Miss Foicik, a student at the Isle Campus of the College of West Anglia, scooped top prize in this year's National Student Glove Design Competition organised by the British Glove Association (BGA).

She is a second-year student on the BTEC National Diploma course in fashion and clothing.

She will receive her award at a ceremony in London next month and part of her prize includes £300 and a week's work experience with Dents in Warminster.

Her winning glove design features an applied poppy in red leather, highlighted with embroidery design. The brief was to design a pair of gloves which could be worn by the Queen on Remembrance Sunday.

The winning design is on display at the Isle Campus Art and Design exhibition, which runs until today (Friday).
