Fashion Forward winners announced

Last night The British Fashion Council and Coutts hosted a cocktail reception to announce the recipients of this year's Fashion Forward sponsorship

Anyone who has been doing their fashion homework will know that Meadham Kirchhoff, Todd Lynn and Peter Pilotto are three of the hottest names right now.

So it came as no suprise that last night, they were each awarded the much-sought-after Fashion Forward sponsorship.

The scheme, sponsored by Coutts and supported by the London Development Agency, has been running for five years – offering funding and mentoring to help London’s rising young designers showcase their work at London Fashion Week.

This is the first time that three designers have been awarded the sponsorship, evidence of their meteoric rise in the fashion industry.

Todd Lynn says, ‘This will be such a great support to me and my brand both in terms of financial sponsorship and building my business through the mentoring scheme. I am so excited to showcase my AW collection next month.’

And we are just as excited to see their designs – let the LFW countdown begin!
