With the closing of designer applications for VFS Sep 2011 yesterday and a flurry of excitement for the coming season, Fashion Scout HQ took a moment to reflect on our successes.

Over the past ten seasons, Vauxhall Fashion Scout have nurtured and supported over 180 amazing designers – that’s a lot of acclaimed talent on our catwalks and in our exhibitions

Bursting onto the scene in February 2008, Peter Pilotto graced the VFS catwalk, leading to his highly anticipated NewGen debut next season. And following in his footsteps, Felder Felder, Cooperative Designs and Avsh Alom Gur all presented their collections with VFS to an internationally renowned audience.

More recently, Vauxhall Fashion Scout have been responsible for launching the likes of David Koma, William Tempest, David Longshaw, Hermione de Paula, Iris Van Herpen, Felicity Brown, Dean Quinn and Eudon Choi to the market.

David Koma made his catwalk debut with Vauxhall Fashion Scout as the proud recipient of the Merit Award and within just two seasons he was propelled on to the NewGen catwalk. Felicity Brown after just one season at the Vauxhall Fashion Scout London Exhibition (which saw them snapped up by Barneys, Liberty London and Selfridges) also joined the NewGen alumni.

Always a first for new talent, Ones To Watch stars Eudon Choi and David Longshaw saw Harvey Nichols Dubai, Harvey Nichols Hong Kong, Lusia Via Roma and Debut New York collectively invest in their debut collections, leading to the highly successful Elle Talent Launch Pad Award for both!

Vauxhall Fashion Scout has quickly become renowned as London’s leading showcase for innovation, selecting and showcasing the quality and vision that London is so famous for. And with such an established eye for the future of British talent, Vauxhall Fashion Scout has recently introduced On-Schedule talents Maria Francesca Pepe, Tim Soar, Krystof Strozyna and BodyAmr into its fold.

The Vauxhall Fashion Scout intention has always been to discover and bring the most exciting talents to the attention of the industry and are proud to have showcased some of London’s hottest names.

With a smile on our face we look forward to the next season!
