The news of the a/w 2014 shows is coming thick and fast. Hot on the heels of the announcement that Whistles is officially joining the London Fashion Week schedule and that Topshop will be hosting its shows in the Tate Modern Turbine Hall, the BFC has unveiled the three designers receiving Fashion Forward sponsorship for the coming season.
The lucky trio? Sophia Webster, J.JS Lee and Nazir Mazhar. Lee has been picked to open LFW and Mazhar will also take to the catwalk, while Webster will unveil her new collection at a presentation in Covent Garden.
Jackie, Nasir and Sophia have come through the ranks and couldnt be more deserving of this level of recognition, says Caroline Rush, Chief Executive of the BFC. Each of them has a very distinctive design aesthetic, their visions very different from one another however together they very much share the limelight that is shining on London right now.
And with just over three weeks until London Fashion Week begins, we wont have to wait long to see what they have in store.More
