At Peper Harow, we deeply appreciate the journey from design conception to product realization, especially when it comes to supporting UK-based young fashion designers. Our sock design competition serves as a unique opportunity for UK students to unleash their creativity, refine their skills, and immerse themselves in the dynamic world of fashion, all while proudly championing the Made in England ethos.

Through this competition, we aim to not only celebrate innovation and artistry but also to empower students with firsthand experience of the market.
