Each season the British Fashion Council awards NewGen sponsorships to up-and-coming designers showing at London Fashion Week. This year’s crop of eighteen includes Holly Fulton, Louise Gray, Mary Katrantzou, David Koma, and Michael van der Ham, all of whom will put on runway shows. Katranzou was the recipient of this year’s coveted Swiss Textile award; Koma, who showed with Fulton at the last London Fashion Week, has been championed by both Beyoncé and Lady Gaga. These should be a good batch of shows in February, which feels like it’s practically tomorrow.
