As some of you may have seen (and many of you commented on Twitter), I took part in the BBC's Junior Apprentice last week.
The contestants that week had to sell the work of fledgling artists at a private art sale. Not only did they have to select the artist to represent, but organise the selling event on Brick Lane, and get the public to buy the art on sale. I was so impressed with their performances, especially Arjun who sold something near £7000’s worth!
Their prize was the come to our Bespoke House and learn all about the world of Bespoke tailoring. They also received a suit that was personalized to their tastes – we taught them how to add a coloured prick-stitch around the collar and lapel, and added their choice of buttons and coloured button threads.
We filmed the episode way back in October last year, and even though the final edit was only a couple of minutes of footage, we filmed for the whole day! It was a very enjoyable day though – the crew were very organised so everything ran smoothly and of course the contestants were so friendly and eager to learn. Congratulations to Arjun who won the overall competition – they were a very inspiring group of youngsters and I can definitely see why Sir Alan would have chosen them. Good luck to all the contestants for the future!
