Fashion Scout, the independent platform for creative and international designers, will return for another exciting season showcasing pioneering global talent during London Fashion Week. This September welcomes a host of returning and emerging designers, including the Merit Award Winner for this season, and our Ones to Watch! 

As we announce the designers over the coming weeks, make sure to check back to see which designers we're highlighting for Spring Summer 2019. 


Simon Mo

A self described environmentalist, Simon Mo is the Taiwanese designer with a penchant for imaginative design. Focusing on the relationship between design, nature and anthropology, Simon's considered approach takes into account the multiplicity of patterns, silhouettes and styles that inform a piece. 

With an AW18 show that focused on texture, pattern and depth of technique, we're eager to see Simon's visionary SS19 collection. 


Lunyee

Lunyee, the design house created by Saini Chan and Sophie Han, has built a reputation for high quality pieces informed by an attention to the components of creation. As traditional silhouettes are interpreted through a modern lens, the muted colour selections and intense fabric textures demonstrate both craftmanship and creativity in both mens and womenswear. 

Lunyee return after an acclaimed show with Fashion Scout during SS18 - the fervently anticipated catwalk show will take place in Freemasons' Hall this September.  


Jiri Kalfar

Starting as one of Nylon's emerging designers to watch in 2015, Jiri Kalfar has won the Best Menswear Design accolade at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Kiev, two consecutive seasons in a row. 

Located in Prague, Jiri Kalfar is an animal rights activist, trained ballet dancer and designer focused on gender fluidity and beauty in all it's forms. Returning to Fashion Scout, after his folk inspired prints for AW18 captured the imagination of the audience, the vibrant luxury will head down the catwalk for SS19. 


Cassey Gan

Hailing from Malaysia, Cassey Gan is the geometric minimalist with a flair for prints. Timeless modernity may appear to be an oxymoron, yet Cassey's natural inclination toward pieces that both ensure comfort and context, allow her to design garments that flow easily between seasons, yet retain a sense of the contemporary. The eponymous label's presentation in February was influenced by Maria Svarbova’s “Swimming Pool” series, showcasing the potential of shape in design. 

We look forward to her debut catwalk show taking place at Freemasons' Hall in Covent Garden this September. 


The full Fashion Scout SS19 schedule will be announced in August.
