Fashion Scout are pleased to announce the Ones to Watch winners for Feb13: Patrick Li, Yeashin and Yulia Kondranina.
Chinese born, London based, Patrick Li featured as part of Fashion Scout’s Graduate Showcase and has since been snapped up by Joyce. After gaining experience under both Hussein Chalayan and Victor and Rolf, Patrick has developed a signature crisp fresh style, epitomising the youth and effortless modern elegance.
After being awarded the Most Creative Student at the WGSN Global Fashion Awards and selected by Vogue as one of the best fashion graduates of 2011, South Korean YEASHIN went on to create her own charming label. Inspired by the juxtaposition of 1960s England and traditional Korean outfits, her collections inject a sense of humour into her myriad coloured pieces.
After graduating with an MA from Central Saint Martins, Yulia Kondranina presented her elegantly gothic graduate collection during London Fashion Week. With a focus on promoting the concept of handcraft coupled with a love of intricacy, Yulia’s heavily woven, sculptural garments tell a dark romantic story.
Fashion Scout Director, Martyn Roberts on the announcement: “This season we are excited to present a diverse range of new talents to the market. Ones To Watch has always been recognised as a launch pad for next generation of designers, and our selection celebrates some the most innovative new designers from both the UK and around the world.”
This season’s esteemed Selection Panel included Hilary Alexander, Jessica Bumpus of Vogue.co.uk, Hannah Emslie of Selfridges, FS alumni and former Merit Award winner Georgia Hardinge, acclaimed stylist Rebekah Roy, Fashion Scout Founder and Director Martyn Roberts and FS Talent Scout Charlotte Gunstone.
The Ones To Watch showcase will take place at Fashion Scout this February.
