Ooh – look at these – Vauxhall Ones to Watch winners have been announced! Congratulations to Askh, Eudon Choi, David Longshaw and Florencia Kozuch, who will all be showing their collections at London Fashion Week in a back to back show after being awarded ‘One to Watch’ status.
While readers know well that Grazia Daily goes weak at the knees at the sight of a Giles dress or a perfectly honed Nicholas Kirkwood shoe, we also absolutely blimmin’ love Vauxhall Fashion Scout. Its one of the initiatives that helps young designers show their collections, get noticed and have a chance to break into the establishment. At fashion week it’s a chance to see some truly eye popping and occasionally genius collections – then later on be able to tell people you spotted their talent first!
So far David Koma; he of the wibbly wobbly mosaic tiles on body-con dresses beloved by the likes of Rihanna and Cheryl Cole, and William Tempest, of the structured neat cocktail dresses favoured by the lovely Emma Watson have both benefitted from the support of the Ones to Watch Designers initiative. We can’t wait to go along to the show and try our hand at identifying future Alexander McQueens!
