The Emerging Designers have now all set up their workspaces in the Fashion Foundry Studio and gone straight into sourcing fabrics, pattern cutting and making use of the machine room.

Now we have gotten to know the designers and their work through individual and group meetings, we have paired them with mentors who are best suited to them. The designer/mentor pairings are:

  • Anika Höppel and Mairi McDonald
  • Ellie Vallely and Samantha Paton, Isolated Heroes
  • Kathryn Fuller and Fiona Chautard, Fashion Info Trends and Emergents
  • Kirsty Frew and William Chambers, William Chambers Millinery
  • Martin Scroggie and John Ray, previously Creative Director of Gucci Menswear and Dunhill
  • Rory Hutton and Kevin Harding, luxury brand consultant previously at Bally, Strathberry, Alexander McQueen and Burberry

We now begin the year of bespoke business advice through 1:1s, workshops and talks. Keep an eye out for all our open events and book your space!

Follow the designers' year on Instagram.
