A fashion brand concept has been given a boost thanks to a Great Yarmouth social enterprise competition.

The Bridge offered entrepreneurs the chance to win a range of prizes to support their business ideas.

Following a final, which merged the formats of TV programmes Dragons’ Den and The X Factor, Sandrine Troullier’s Japanese inspired fashion brand ‘Suki Collection’ was chosen as the overall victor.

Among her prizes, she has won a laptop and an advertising package with the Great Yarmouth Mercury.

She said: “I cant believe I have won, this is potentially life changing for me and has inspired me to take the next steps into business.”
