London-based emerging designer platform Fashion Scout has opened its applications for its spring/summer 2016 London and Paris showcases.
Marking the platform’s 19th season, the London Fashion Week initiative that has nurtured the likes of Eudon Choi, Phoebe English, Georgia Hardinge, and David Koma is looking for the next generation of designers to make their mark on the international fashion scene.
Designers can apply for multiple showcase options including presentations and installations, catwalk and salon shows, the London exhibition and the Paris showroom, plus collaborative showcase Ones To Watch and the Merit Award.
The coveted Merit Award is worth 25,000 pounds over three seasons, in which the designer will showcase their collections on the catwalk at Freemasons' Hall during LFW, as well as receive mentoring and support. Last year’s winner was Royal College of Art graduate James Kelly, he was selected by a panel of industry experts including fashion editor Hilary Alexander.
Fashion Scout will take place from September 18-22 during London Fashion Week and in Paris from October 1-7. Applications close May 7.
