BFC announces next season NEWGEN recipients
Get ready because the next round of NEWGEN recipients have just been revealed by the British Fashion Council. A total of 19 winners have been selected to show at London Fashion Week in February next year with Mark Fast (who caused a stir in September for using plus-sized models) leading the pack.
Mary Katranzou, Meadham Kirchhoff and British Fashion Award winner Peter Pilotto will also present catwalk shows again. And Louise Gray, Maria Francesca Pepe, Sykes and Holly Fulton will all host presentations during the week.
Newbies to the line-up include David Koma, who already has a celeb following including Cheryl Cole and Beyonce, Christopher Raeburn, accessories and womenswear designer Fannie Schiavoni, and Natascha Stolle.
