Over the past couple of months our ELLE/BFCTalent Launchpad winners have been touring around the country and meeting their loyal followers - not to mention winning over new fans - at some of our favourite stores. The idea is that the boutiques, who helped us to choose our worthy winners and who are now stocking their favourites, join us in championing the fledgling designers and help them on the road to the most diffcult part of running your own label - making money.
In the third of the events Anna, a luxury boutique on London's Kings Road, played host to designer and illustrator David Longshaw and Morgan Bell of Irwin and Jordan. The duo mingled with the gathered fashion fans and showed of their spring collections, talking about the influences and ideas behind their latest creations.
And for the final event Holly Fulton and Eudon Choi made their way up to Manchester to meet to clientele of designer concept store Hervia Bazaar. The evening was New York/London themed, in honour of the Big Apple skyline that so often graces Holy's dresses and the cool, utilitarian vibe behind Eudon's label.More
