The British Fashion Council (BFC) has today announced nine of London’s emerging talents who will receive sponsorship to showcase their SS16 collections at London Fashion Week (18-22 September) from NEWGEN sponsored by Topshop. Catwalk sponsorship has been awarded to 1205, Ashley Williams and Ryan Lo; presentation sponsorship will go to Claire Barrow, Danielle Romeril, Faustine Steinmetz (pictured above) and Molly Goddard; while exhibition sponsorship will be awarded to Marta Jakubowski and Sadie Williams. Each of the NEWGEN designers will again be given a dedicated pop-up showroom for four hours after their show or presentation giving buyers the opportunity to make sales appointments with the designers. NEWGEN designers are identified by their creativity, strong design aesthetic and point of difference. The NEWGEN committee, chaired by Sarah Mower MBE, focused on selecting designers who are ready for the profile, platform and support that NEWGEN offers. The BFC, with support from the NEWGEN committee and Topshop, will deliver individualised support and business seminars to assist the designers as they build their own infrastructure and skills.
