The British Fashion Council (BFC) has announced the four menswear designers who have been awarded Fashion Forward sponsorship: Christopher Shannon, J.W. Anderson, James Long and Vauxhall Fashion Scout designer E.Tautz. The four designers will showcase their designers at the London Collections: Men which takes place in June. 

This is the first time that the Fashion Forward sponsorship has been dedicated to menswear designers, meaning that the three new winners will join James Long who was the first menswear designer to receive the accolade last season. 

"This is an important prize, and the previous winners' list reads like a roll call of London's brightest fashion talent," said E Tautz creative director Patrick Grant. "Menswear is tough and the competition have bags of cash, so support like this makes a big difference. It means a better collection and a better show, and that is all we are trying to achieve."

All four Fashion Forward winners receive valued support by the BFC as well as a cash prize to assist showcasing their SS13 collections.

Huge congratulations to E.Tautz from the whole VFS team!
