I first saw Hermione’s collection at Vauxhall Fashion Scout as I was working on ‘Ones to Watch’ show September 09. Her prints are really beautiful and her clothes are so easy wear!
Hermione studied at Central St Martins and graduating with a first class degree in Fashion and Print, de Paula gained invaluable experience from working with the likes of Alexander McQueen, Galliano and Christian Dior which has led to her developing her own luxury ready to wear collection with an emphasis on delicate hand painted and collage prints.
“I am so thrilled to have been selected as the winner of the Vauxhall Fashion Scout Merit award. Vauxhall Fashion Scout have already championed and helped the careers of some incredible designers and I am honoured to be considered in the same light.” Hermione de Paula
You’ll be able to purchase her SS collection at Browns Focus!
February 2010 will be the eighth season that Vauxhall Fashion Scout has showcased new design talent as part of the Off-Schedule Calendar.
Previous winners of the Merit Award are David Korma and William Tempest!
