BFC announces New Generation sponsorship

The British Fashion Council will award New Generation sponsorship to 20 young designers to show at its exhibition and on the catwalks at London Fashion Week next season.

Central St Martins' graduates Krystof Strozyna and Meadham Kirchhoff will receive catwalk sponsorship for the first time in February 2008, while Anna Vince, Charlotte Olympia, Justin Smith and Nicholas Kirkwood will each get their first exhibition sponsorship.

Other catwalk designers who have been awarded repeat New Generation sponsorship are Christopher Kane, Duro Olowu, Erdem, Louise Goldin, Marios Schwab and Todd Lynn. Recipients of repeat exhibition sponsorship include Emilio de la Morena, Peter Pilotto, Borba Margo, David David, Felder Felder, Hannah Marshall, House of Holland and Poltock & Walsh.

Topshop will continue to support the New Generation scheme for the 13th season, which will run from February 10-15, 2008.

The BFC set up the New Gen scheme in 1993. The fund has helped to establish British designers including Alexander McQueen, Matthew Williamson, Julien McDonald, Sara Berman, Giles and Jonathan Saunders.
