peterpilotto_newgen_aw200910.jpgTalented designers listen up! The hunt for the next round of Topshop New Generation designers is officially on.

The British Fashion Council is now accepting applications for the forthcoming spring/summer 2010 season.

Recipients of the sponsorship scheme will receive substantial financial support and assistance with either their catwalk show or exhibition at London Fashion Week.

The initiative began in 1993, helping to put some of our most successful designers on the world map. Recent recipients include House of Holland, Louise Goldin and Peter Pilotto (A/W '09 pictured, left) - just to name a few.

If you have been in the business for no more than three years, then you may submit your application by clicking here before 1st May, 2009.
