Fashion East has announced this morning that the platform will present four designers -- the most it's ever shown -- for the upcoming fall/winter 16 season at London Fashion Week in February. Get ready for a third season of sporty 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!"
