This afternoon a panel of industry experts will gather at our Hackney office to make some big decisions. That’s right folks, today is Fashion Futures Jury Day.
They will have the unenviable task of choosing just one winner and three runners-up from this year’s cohort of teen finalists. Always hard with so much young talent around!
May Martin, of BBC Great British Sewing Bee fame, will be joining us to appraise the quality of every stitch while we are also delighted to welcome back Nadine Peters, designer of Peters Menswear, who will bring her unique experience as a past Fashion Futures finalist to proceedings.
Thank you to our lovely jury for giving up their time to today’s task. Look out for their thoughts on this year’s designs and winners coming soon to the FAD blog.
