It’s that time of year again when you and I are looking forward to a Christmas break, during which we plan to be a permanent fixture on the sofa, trying to break our six films in one day record – bliss. But let’s spare a thought for the poor fashion designers out there, who won’t be getting such a break as they are gearing up for their shows in February. And as if they need a reminder, the British Fashion Council today have confirmed the nineteen designers who are receiving NEWGEN sponsorship to show at London Fashion Week. Catwalk presentations go to Mark Fast, Mary Katrantzou, Meadham Kirchhoff and Peter Pilotto, hmm, we wonder if Mark is planning any more headline grabbing catwalk stunts? While presentation sponsorship is offered to Holly Fulton (who is fresh out of the Fashion East fold, after three seasons), Louise Gray, Maria Francesca Pepe and Sykes. See below for the full list of recipients of NEWGEN, sponsored by Topshop:
