Vauxhall Fashion ScoutFriday, 04 September 2009
On the 18th September, Vauxhall Fashion Scout will take over the premises of Freemasons Hall in Covent Garden, located on 60 Great Queen St, a minutes from the British Fashion Council venue at Somerset House. The Vauxhall Fashion Scout is an exclusive off-schedule event which forms an integral part of London Fashion Week. It's catwalk event for emerging designers, featuring a selection of the latest talent.
Dedicated to supporting and nurturing sup and coming designers, Vauxhall Fashion Scout enables young designers to show their debut collections in front of an audience of leading international buyers and media at the seventh season of Ones to Watch. This year’s fresh new talent include Ada Zanditon, Dean Quinn, Hermione de Paula and Marko Mitanovski.
The winner of the second ever Merit Award, David Koma, awarded the title of best new designer, will showcase his designs on a sponsored catwalk show during LFW at Vauxhall Fashion Scout's venue. The first winner was the hotly-tipped William Tempest who showed his much anticipated debut after showing exceptional creativity, quality of collection and ability to grow as a label.
