The NEWGEN winners for London Fashion Week in September have just been announced and we couldn’t be more excited to be it's sponsors. With David Koma, Holly Fulton, Louise Gray and Michael van der Ham set to send their collections down the catwalk for SS12, next season is already looking amazing!
These are the names to know right now so scribble them down and keep them on your radar. Sure to be a favourite with all the editors, stylists, buyers and bloggers who’ll be doing the rounds at Fashion Week, you’ll be hearing much more about these rising talents in the coming months.
Our congratulations also go to Christopher Raeburn, Craig Lawrence, JW Anderson, Dominic Jones and Nasir Mazhar who will be staging presentations for the style sets' viewing pleasure next season as well.
Designers Felicity Brown, J .JS Lee, James Long, Palmer Harding, Thomas Tait and Tim Soar will all also receive funding to take part in the NEWGEN exhibition that takes place at Somerset House during Fashion Week each season.
Through the NEWGEN scheme, we've been supporting up-and-coming British design talent since 2001. Set up by the British Fashion Council in 1993 to showcase the UK's most prolific young design talents, previous winners include Alexander McQueen, Matthew Williamson, Giles Deacon, Jonathan Saunders, Christopher Kane, Marios Schwab, Richard Nicoll and Erdem.
