A talented young woman from Teddington is part of a team of designers who have created the new body-confident Girl Guide uniform.

Kate Facer, 22, was one of five design students asked to create the new range by girl-guiding.

With her team Kate created a range of clothing for guides aged 10 to 14.

This includes a choice of tops to wear with trousers, leggings, skirts, jeans and shorts as well as a uniform dress and skirt.

Kate, who attended Waldegrave School for Girls, Twickenham, designed the uniform while studying fashion at the Arts University Bournemouth.

Kate said: "I have learned things about myself and the work place that I would not have without being part of this project."

Kate is keen to pursue a career in fashion design.

Chief Guide Gill Slocombe said: "We’re exceptionally proud of the young women who have taken such care over this project. We are thrilled with the designs - they’re fresh, young and versatile. It was extremely important to select the right designers for this project and I am delighted we selected Arts University Bournemouth as they are clearly committed to ensuring fashion embraces diversity."
