Sirdar, the yarn manufacturers who specialise in quality yarns for hand knitting were another key industry partnership established by Daphne Brooker. This booklet found in Tim Guilbride’s portfolio documents the project, undertaken during December 1975, during Guilbride’s second year on the Fashion course.
One of Tim’s designs for the Sirdar project, a rainbow knitted wool waistcoat, was featured in Woman’s Own magazine, modelled by Helen Swift. In the images below we can see the design plus the fashion catwalk photography.
