The latest winners of Fashion Group International’s Rising Star awards were named yesterday at a special awards luncheon. Two designers, Wes Gordon and Nonoo’s Misha Nonoo, tied for the womenswear win; Simon Spurr took home the menswear trophy. Rising Star titles remain a prestigious award for young designers, and there’s an extra bonus — as Wes Gordon noted in his acceptance speech, the ceremony offered time for a nice long lunch break in the otherwise frantic run-up to fashion week.
