Fashion East have announced this morning that they will present four designers -- the most ever -- for the upcoming autumn/winter 16 season at London Fashion Week in February. Get ready for a third season of sports elegance from Caitlin Price and a second season of quirky tailoring by Richard Malone, with the addition of two newcomers to the emerging talent showcase: Central Saint Martins graduates AV Robertson and Mimi Wade.
"The new applicants were especially strong this season, with Amie [AV] Robertson even being recommended to us by Katie Grand and Katie Hillier," Lulu Kennedy MBE, Director of Fashion East says. "The selection process was getting impossible, until panel member Mandi Lennard suggested we award four designers instead of our usual three," she explains, adding, "I am more excited than ever to reveal the talent we have chosen -- it's the most brilliant line-up yet!".
Mandi Lennard, Founder of Mandi's Basement and Fashion East panellist says, "Fashion East is throwing some of the freshest new names out there in February, and yet again shaking up their format -- fashion's new blood is about to be released from the starting blocks".
