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).
