Huge congratulations to fab Scottish designer Jonathan Saunders, as he has just been revealed as the winner of this year’s BFC/Vogue Fashion Fund! His prize includes £200,000 in cash, as well as exclusive mentoring to help him meet his business goals over the next year.
“I’m so happy about winning the fund,” the winner told British Vogue. “The last 12 months have been an exciting time for me and my team and I’m very proud of all their hard work. We have many exciting plans for the near future and this along with the support network provided by the BFC will enable us to achieve our goals.”
The Scottish designer had lots of stiff competition for the prize, from the likes of Peter Pilotto, Mary Katrantzou, Richard Nicoll, Roksanda llincic, Marios Schwab, Zoe Jordan, Meadham Kirchhoff and Nicholas Kirkwood – all of whom were shortlisted.
