So last week we announced our very exciting, totally unique fashion talent search - the Grazia Fash Factor! We're offering undiscovered womenswear and accessory designers the opportunity to show their designs to a panel of top industry experts. But WHO are those experts?
Earlier today, we revealed our panel of experts including some of the most powerful buyers in the fashion industry, from ASOS’s Caren Downie to Whistles’ Jane Shepherdson and Matches’ Tom Chapman.
Sounds good, doesn’t it? Well now we can reveal the DESIGNERS who will be gracing our illustrious judging panel too…
Kicking the fun off at 9am is Henry Holland. The brilliantly bonkers designer began his career with genius slogan T-shirts before being invited to show at London Fashion Week as part of Fashion East. Fours years later, Henry's used his business savvy to secure premium international stockists for House of Holland, plus a diffusion range for Debenhams, and the brand now boasts a whole host of impressive sponsorship deals as well as A-list fans from Agyness Deyn to Alexa Chung.
Next up, at 11am, it’s the turn of Jonathan Saunders who became a LFW highlight thanks to his stunning graphic prints in kaleidoscopic colour. His collections have been scooped up by prime international stores since he burst onto the scene in 2003 and he continues to consult for some of the largest and most prestigious print fashion houses in Europe.
Stay tuned as we bring you details of the BLOGGERS who will be joining our fabulous panel. And don't forget, folks, there's no need to worry if your designs aren't totally polished. We're looking for raw talent, pieces stitched together on your bedroom floor are just as welcome!
