Team ELLE has long been a supporter of young British designers but, from today, we'll be doing even more to help them on their way. We know that, when it comes to building a successful label, talent is only half the battle. So we've joined forces with the British Fashion Council to launch the brand new Talent Launch Pad, an initiative to help new designers navigate the world of business.
How does it work? Any budding fashion star who has had their label for less than two years can apply until the deadline on 27th May. Then we'll pick our favourites and use our contacts and expertise to help them forge their way onto the fashion radar. Not only could you get much sought after coverage in ELLE magazine, we'll also introduce you to everyone from stylists to PR's so that you can nail your marketing as well as their collections.
ELLE's editor in chief, Lorraine Candy, says 'Brilliant young designers in London understandably focus their resources on creating outstanding collections. We will use our styling and image making expertise to help promote and build their businesses and get their great work into British shops as soon as possible, so style hungry women up and down the country can wear and support new talent.'
