In their own words: Fyodor Golan

For the Dorchester Collection Fashion Prize

In ELLE's exclusive profile series celebrating this year's Dorchester Collection Fashion Prize finalists, this week, the spotlight falls on Fyodor Golan.

The label is the work of design duo Fyodor Podgorny and Golan Frydman, who hail from Latvia and Israel respectively. Having cut their teeth working with the likes of Richard Nicoll, Alexander McQueen, Raf Simons and Issey Miyake, they launched their own brand in 2010. It's testament to the strength of their collections that, just three years later, they're up for one of most prestigious fashion awards in the world.


In our never-seen-before application video below, they explain why they deserve to win it.

The Dorchester Collection Fashion Prize is a £25,000 award that will be awarded on 29 October, after consideration by an judging panel.
