Fashion Scout although off schedule at London fashion week, is an amazing showcase that puts a spotlight on young emerging designers. As we know there seems to be no guarantee after completing a fashion course to go on and become a Professional Designer, with your own label. Platforms such as Fashion Scout have proven to be a stepping stone to bigger things within the commercial fashion industry. Press still turn to look at Scout’s ones to watch, and most importantly the latest Merit award winner. This year David Ferreira a graduate of university of Westminster has bagged the acclaimed Merit award for 2016, that have seen past winners such as Eudon Choi and Xiao Li.
The Merit award encompasses a fully sponsored London fashion week catwalk show at the Freemasons Hall and Fashion scout exhibition in London and Paris. David’s strong vision is bound to capture the imagination of press and buyers, and I wish him luck for his show scheduled Friday 19th February.
