LFW: Fashion Fringe winnerMonday, 19 September 2011
Fyodor Golan is a designer duo combination of passion and opposites. With different backgrounds, Fyodor from Latvia and Golan from Israel, they learned how to explore differences rather than similarities in their design aesthetics, describing their ethos as 'Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde'.
By wining Fashion Fringe, Fyodor Golan will receive support in selling their Fashion Fringe collection to retail outlets. They can use the equipped studio space in Somerset House for two years. Fashion Fringe will offer cash instalments to help fund the first two collections, and Fyodor Golan will receive ongoing business support from the mentors. Next season there’s a slot during LFW reserved to make its debut, and all is continuously support with PR.
Fashion Fringe offers support to emerging talented designers in London and to keep them in London. The aim is to discover, nurture and sustain cutting edge design talent across the UK and since its interception; the inspirational and committed business model has helped launch more than seventeen designers onto the London fashion scene.
