Emerging Designer Resources: BFC NEWGEN

LFW Simone Rocha Spring 14 Collection

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).

Show Review: Emerging Designer at LFW: Zoe Jordan SS/14

As a 2012 Vogue/BFC Fashion Fund  nominee, relatively new designer Zoe Jordan, demonstrates good tailoring, along with great use of color for her latest offering. I liked how the line screamed tough, sporty (leather jackets and sheer hoodies) but there was also a soft and feminine element as well. Along with a few androgynous touches ( loose fitting pants and oversized outerwear and the Basquiat like graffiti), I can definitely see college campus fashionistas rocking several of these pieces for spring into summer…

LFW: Show Review Duro Olowu S/S 14 Collection

What will be LFW without Duro Olowu? I am a big fan of this  London based fashion brand. I have always admire him from the distance for being able to mix his Nigerian/West Indian heritage (Jamaica) with British aesthetic. For his spring 14 collection Olowu played with shapes by turning up the volume on some of the cape coats and jackets below.

fun, colorful and very feminine.

My favorite looks were this blue and white collar coat with matching white pants. This look screams power woman. The clutch is to die for. The mix print  skirt, top and jacket below. .
