For the first time ever, London Fashion Week 2013 will provide a platform for the London College of Fashion to present its MA 2013 graduates this February. With past alumni ranging from established designers such as Jimmy Choo OBE and Beatrix Ong OBE, to rising stars like JW Anderson and William Tempest, this show is a sneak preview of the fashion industry’s future stars.
On Friday the 15th of February in the Royal Opera House a handpicked selection of young designers will show their graduate collection to an influential global audience. The ten shortlisted designers include Antonia Lloyd, Kieko Nishyama, Maddalena Mangialavori, Min Wu, Na Di, Nadia Scullion, Sian Davies, Xin Sun, Yan Yu Cheung and Yi Xie. Six of the list are womenswear designers and four are menswear designers, so both disciplines will be shown.
‘Moving the MA Show to coincide with London Fashion Week is a significant step in the development of our postgraduate offer and signals the coming of age of our MA programmes which are consistently providing some of the industry’s most talented fashion designers and professionals,’ said Professor Frances Corner, Pro-Vice Chancellor at London College of Fashion.
