The NEWGEN winners for London Fashion Week in February have just been announced and oh are we excited to be sponsors! The catwalk line-up for AW11 is already looking amazing with David Koma, Holly Fulton, Louise Gray, Mary Katrantzou and Michael van der Ham all set to send their collections down the catwalk.
These rising stars' shows are sure to be a favourite with all the editors, stylists, buyers and bloggers doing the rounds at Fashion Week and we can hardly wait for the style frenzy to begin! Take a look at what we got up to last Fashion Week and get set to be inspired for Spring - these are the looks you'll be dying to get your hands on once the sun starts to shine.
Our congratualtions also go to Christopher Raeburn, Craig Lawrence, JS Lee, and JW Anderson who'll be showing a film, as well as Nasir Mazhar who will stage a presentation, and Dominic Jones and Jordan Askill who'll be creating installations for the style sets' viewing pleasure.
Designers Chau Har Lee, Christopher Raeburn, Craig Lawrence, David Koma, Dominic Jones, Fannie Schiavoni, Felicity Brown, Heikki Salonen, Holly Fulton, Jordan Askill, JS Lee, JW Anderson, Louise Gray, Mary Katrantzou, Michael van der Ham, Nasir Mazhar, Thomas Tait and Yang Du will all also receive funding to take part in the NEWGEN exhibition at Somerset House.
