The Fashion Scout at Russian Fashion Week

Russian Fashion Week is over for another season and, with more than 50 shows under their belt, it was a fantastic display of the best design talent. Earlier in the week, Vauxhall Fashion Scout co-founder, Martyn Roberts, ran a talk as part of the educational programme, Practicum: British Fashion. Held over the weekend at Moscow’s Red October Factory, the event, partly organised by the British Council, aimed to introduce British projects and expertise to emerging Russian fashion experts. With British designers, journalists, fashion consultants and buyers taking part in discussions and lectures, Martyn spoke about investments in fashion and fashion awards, presenting the various UK-based schemes which offer financial support to emerging designers.

It’s great to hear that the Vauxhall Fashion Scout mentoring mantra has made it over to Moscow, and we can’t wait to see which new designers are set to make it big next season!
