Days 4&5 - Coming Up!
Although the weekend might be over, Fashion Scout are still showcasing designers and presenting catwalk shows. To make sure you’re fully clued up on all that’s going on, we have put together a comprehensive run down on each scheduled event.
After graduating from University of the Arts London in 2014, designer Amitie Zeng founded her brand ‘L’Amitie’. Tailored towards what Amitie describes as the L’Amitié Women, “hard working, and enterprising". Zeng hopes every female can "feel extremely confident, independent and sexy" when wearing her collection. The main aesthetic vision for this designer is chic classic lines and use of current and forecasted colours and has already made a big impression in China.
Shanghai designer CJ was awarded the 1st Runner up of Asian Young Fashion Designers Contest in Singapore, and debuted in China during 2014. CJ Yao is a womenswear designer who regularly presents heavily layered designs and tailored shapes.
As seen in Dazed, Vogue.co.uk, Harper’s Bazaar, Elle, Grazia, L'Officiel, Cosmopolitan, Vision, Time Out, Q Magazine, and Hello! among others publications, Marko Mitanovski has partnered with Fashion Scout previously in both 2009 and AW15. Also collaborating with a jewellery designer and sculptor for his most recent showcase, his designs are extremely dramatic and notably gothic in style.
Belgrade Fashion Week
