Congratulations to Haizhen Wang, as Christopher Bailey has just named the Central Saint Martins graduate as the winner of the 2012 Fashion Fringe prize!
“I’m really excited,” Haizhen Wang said on being selected. “It’s absolutely fantastic. “It’s such an amazing opportunity to win. It’s my career’s turning point. I hope everyone enjoyed the show.”
“I am so excited about charting the progress of Haizhen, this is only the start of his journey,” Christopher Bailey said. “His collection showed an incredible level of originality and craftsmanship. The support and nurturing that Fashion Fringe will provide will give Haizhen a strong framework to continue to really grow as a designer.”
Haizhen Wang will also receive first-class mentoring whenever he wants, and will get studio space in Somerset House for the next four seasons of London Fashion Week! Watch this space, as we predict he is going to be the next big thing. Congratulations again!
