WGSN is holding its second annual Global Fashion Awards next week on the 20th October and we’re planning to keep our eye on 2011’s new category: The Lycra Style Emerging Talent Award.
The trend forecasters will have the tough job of deciding between an exciting shortlist of relatively unknown designers which includes Eudon Choi, Raoul, Kirsty Ward, Timo Weiland and Masha Ma – whose show, inspired by the Palace of Versailles, we were lucky enough to report from in September at LFW S/S12.
Whose collections have caught your eye this season? And who do you think could benefit from an award like this? The winner of the WGSN award gets consulting, marketing and technical support with their A/W 12 collection. Check back next week to find out which designer will be catapulted onto the fashion radar at the ceremony in Gotham Hall, NYC.
