The Fashion Monitor Team (Hannah centred) wearing Vauxhall Fashion Scout Designers from London Fashion Week ExhibitionBefore our final show kicked-off- ending another season with Vauxhall Fashion Scout- we managed to get some closing comments from Hannah White, Editor of our official media sponsor, Fashion Monitor. Here's what she had to say about us, as a platform for emerging designers, and what's so great about sticking with Fashion Scout throughout the seasons.
"Vauxhall Fashion Scout completely bridges the gap between emerging designers, and London Fashion Week. It gives them the opportunity to showcase to the press and buyers in a professional environment, and allows them to have the shows, as well as the exhibition space, so that [press and buyers] can really see, and feel the collections. [Vauxhall Fashion Scout] are really supportive, in terms of the business advice that they give the designers throughout the year, and the help they provide to put on a show.
Also, with the ‘Merit Award’ winner, and the ‘Ones-to-Watch’, you can see how they progress into full-fledged designers with that support; for instance, Phoebe English started as ‘One-to-Watch’, now she’s a ‘Merit Award’ winner, and three seasons down the line, she’ll be flourishing- which is really, really great to see."
