Here at Sereine Magazine, we try to showcase emerging designers and give them a platform to talk about their work. What a lot of designers may or may not know is that some resources are available to them to get their business off the ground or take it to the next level. That is where NEWGEN comes into play. NEWGEN which stands for New Generation was created in 1993 by the BFC ( British Fashion Council) to showcase and promote new designers.
NEWGEN offers catwalk designers financial support towards their show costs and the opportunity to use the BFC Catwalk Show Space. Others receive sponsored presentation or exhibition space to showcase their collections, offering an important introduction for young UK-based designers to influential press and buyers from around the world. NEWGEN also provides business and mentoring support through the BFC in partnership with Shoosmiths, Baker Tilley and Lloyds TSB. Former NEWGEN recipients include Simone Rocha (above) and Mary Katranzou (below).
