With the eyes now looking at September 2011 and after  Selection Panel was held we can see the excitement rising up. Many calls coming in and some coming out to get everything arranged for next season.  Results will be soon unveiled.

As well we wondered what impressions did the judging panel had about what happen during Selection Panel, for that reason we interviewed Stefan Siegel from Not Just A Label to know more about his insights, and what the fashion´s black sheep thinks.
