New Gen Awards: And the winners are…


Its nearly that time again. With London Fashion Week round the corner, we’ve been keen to find out which designers were lucky enough to receive New Gen sponsorship this season.

The announcement has been made and in total, twenty talented designers made the cut and will get the opportunity to show their SS09 collections either in the BFC New Gen exhibition area sponsored by Topshop or on the catwalk at London Fashion Week in September.

Louise Goldin (who we love), Danielle Scutt, Meadham Kirchhoff, House of Holland and Peter Pilotto received catwalk sponsorship. This will be the first time that both Henry Holland and Peter Pilotto will show on-schedule under the New Gen umbrella.

Two of our favourites, Felder Felder and Hannah Marshall, along with newcomers ready-to-wear designers Mary Katrantzou, Matthew Cunnington & John Sanderson, Sandra Backlund, Simone Shailes and Cooperative Design received exhibition sponsorship. Milliner Nazir Mazhar is scheduled to hold an event at Dover Street Market.

Lots to look forward to! We can’t wait….
