Golden Shears celebrates the next generation of tailors in the UK. Every two years we host a competition to bring together the very best fashion students and apprentice tailors from around the country and showcase their creative and technical excellence.

“The Oscars of the Tailoring World.”

1st prize The Golden Shears and £3,000
2nd prize The Silver Shears and £2,500
3rd prize The Rising Star and £2,000
