29 year old designer Edward Finney has grabbed the attention of Grazia HQ.
We announced, in a last minute post on Monday the Grazia Fash Factor Award, and were delighted that some of Vauxhall Fashion Scout´s designers made it to the auditions.
As the Fash Factor Awards drew to a close, VFS designer Edward Finney, who has shown with us for two consecutive seasons, made the final cut and was featured in Grazia Daily.
Edward´s story captured the attention of the panelists which included Grazia´s Editos Jane Bruton, Jonathan Saunders, Caren Downie from ASOS, Henry Holland, and Jackie Dixon from ShowMeYourWardrobe.com, with his black feather cocktail Black Swan inspired dress. And the CSM designer has an impressive CV to boot, working at No 19 Savile Row, Eley Kishimoto, Alexander McQueen and was the Assistant Designer for John Galliano in Paris for 4 years.
The talented designers audition story, covering his journey to the auditions, to his professional presentation (yes, he hired a proper model for the event!) and his impressive background made Edward a clear candidate for the Award.
The full article can be read here and we hope this "heart-warming story" finishes in a celebration with a printed campaign.
Well done Edward!
