British Fashion Council Announce NEWGEN Recipients For SS18


Stop me if you’ve heard this one before, but are London’s young designers not the very best in the world? You can barely swing a cat around here without hitting some sort of talented young thing. A fact evidenced by the latest whopper list of NEWGEN recipients for SS18, announced by the British Fashion Council this afternoon. They are, in handy alphabetical order: A-COLD-WALL*, Charles Jeffrey LOVERBOY,  COTTWEILER, Halpern, Kiko Kostadinov, Liam Hodges, Marta Jakubowski, Molly Goddard, Nicholas Daley, Paula Knorr, Phoebe English MAN, Richard Malone, Sadie Williams and Wales Bonner. In the words of Sarah Mower, via press release: “to be able to select NEWGEN for both womenswear and menswear side by side this year has given the scheme a panoramic overview of London’s strength as a centre-point of young innovation. We have all been energised to see a surge of diverse talents from so many backgrounds whose focussed individuality inspires us.” Congratulations!
