We are thrilled to announce that we have opened our applications for our AW14 London and Paris showcases.
In addition to applying to catwalk, presentation and salon shows during LFW or at our PFW showroom, designers can also apply for the Ones to Watch and Merit Award accolades. The Merit Award, which has been won in past seasons by the likes of William Tempest, David Koma, Eudon Choi and Felder Felder is worth £25,000 over three seasons and includes a fully sponsored catwalk show and a £1000 bursary in the first season. There are four slots available for the very best new UK and International designer applicants to show as a part of the Ones To Watch showcase. Ones To Watch plays a major role in the promotion of design innovation, creating a catwalk showcase which is always amongst the must-see shows each season.
Successful designers will be hand-selected by a panel of industry experts including Hilary Alexander and Fashion Scout Director Martyn Roberts, who will judge them on their creativity, quality of work and potential.
Applications are open from today (22nd October 2013) until November 18th. Visit fashion-scout.co.uk for further information or to request an application pack.
