The British Fashion Council (BFC) today announced the chosen 18 rising talents in fashion that will receive NEWGEN sponsorship, supported by Topshop, and will show at London Fashion Week in February 2011.
NEWGEN is internationally recognised for showcasing the best in design talent and is a crucial element in the BFC’s talent identification process.

Previous recipients have included Alexander McQueen, Matthew Williamson, Boudicca, Giles Deacon, Jonathan Saunders, Christopher Kane and Erdem.
Caroline Rush, Chief Executive of the British Fashion Council commented, “NEWGEN has been propelling young British design talent on an international stage for many years, and we thank Topshop for their ongoing support. The strength of the brands that the previous winners have gone on to establish is testament to the talent here in London and demonstrates the strength of talent identified by NEWGEN season on season. This season’s recipients are directional, innovative and show incredible promise and we are excited for them to demonstrate the best of London’s emerging design talent to a global audience.”

When I went to the Fashion Business Club’s last meeting, Yasmin Sewell labelled Michael van der Ham as ‘one to watch’.
