I love seeing new collections at Press Days, Fashion Weeks and other events, watching catwalk collections set up the trends for the new season. Fashion moves at a fast pace and although we are currently styling our latest AW13 outfits, I am already looking ahead to the AW14 shows. NEWGEN recently announced the winners of the 2014 emerging talents who will receive sponsorship to showcase AW14 collections at London Fashion Week.
Ryan Lo - SS12
Whilst you may not all be eager to find out which designers will be supported by the scheme and may be wondering why I am posting about this - I am posting this because NEWGEN designers are identified by their individuality, creativity and strong antithetical designs. Previous winners have been Alexander McQueen, Christopher Kane, Erdem, Mary Katrantzou, Roksanda Ilincic, Jonathan Saunders and J.W. Anderson all or most of which you have probably heard of and are fans of. So the winners this year really are set to be big names!
Simone Rocha - SS14
A personal favourite of mine is Simone Rocha who I have been a fan of for a while, she also recently won 'Emerging Womenswear Designer' at the 2013 British Fashion Awards. See more of Simone Rocha's work and collections at simonerocha.com
The remaining winners are; 1205; Danielle Romeril; Lucas Nascimento; Marques' Almedia; Ryan Lo. View the winners profiles and collections on the Designers page on the London Fashion Week website.
