She’s fast becoming one of the hottest tickets at London Fashion Week, and it would seem we’re not the only ones to think so. Louise Goldin has just been awarded this year’s Fashion Fund sponsorship.
The London-based designer, who’s techno-knit designs have won her a firm place at the forefront of fashion, will receive sponsorship for two seasons, funding her AW10 and SS11 shows.
Awarded by the British Fashion Council and judged by a panel of industry insiders, the Fashion Fund scheme helps propel established and emerging British design talent to a global audience, and has already shot the likes of Christopher Kane, Marios Schwab and Erdem to international success.
â€œI am so proud to be a winner of this prestigious award , Fashion Forward, said Goldin, who beat of stiff competition from Basso & Brooke, Emilio de la Morena, Jean-Pierre Braganza, Osman and Todd Lynn to scoop the sponsorship. â€œIt is amazing to have the support from The British Fashion Council, Coutts and industry experts. I am even more driven to create my most successful collection yet! Receiving the financial sponsorship enables me to create pieces which are commercially viable yet maintain creative integrity.
She’s not kidding; this season’s collection of 90s-inspired pastels, sculpted dresses, flirty ruffles and lurex knits are top of the fash-pack’s wish-list, as are her first collection of shoes for Topshop.
February can’t come soon enough.
