A professional fashion expert will be judging the efforts and the winner in each category will have their design made - and then paraded down the catwalk at fashion shows at the shopping centre on Saturday, May 30.

Shirley Harper, marketing manager at the Howard Centre, said: "There will be extra points for originality and attention to detail. Remember to include information of colours, fabrics, trims and fastenings in your design."

Entry forms are available from participating retailers or at the kiosk on the ground floor.

You can also download an entry form online at www.howard-centre.co.uk

Entries close at 5pm on Sunday.
