This morning Hilary Riva announced the designers to be sponsored by the British Fashion Council for the New Generation initiative. From 100 applicants, a judging panel chose five young designers to present at this September's London Fashion Week. Louise Goldin (pictured), Danielle Scutt, Meadham Kirchhoff, House of Holland and Peter Pilotto have all won catwalk sponsorship at London Fashion Week with Nasir Mazhar receiving events sponsorship.
Mary Homer, managing director of Topshop told Vogue, "The New Generation Award wouldn't have the credibility it does if it wasn't for the quality of work submitted by young designers. British trained designers are the heartbeat of the fashion world."
David David, Felder Felder, Hannah Marshall, Nicolas Kirkwood and Poltock and Walsh will also all receive exhibition sponsorship. Only a few months to go now, we can't wait to see their collections!
