Jade Kang, Alice Palmer and Corrie Nielsen have just been announced as the three finalists for Fashion Fringe 2010 – here they are last night celebrating the great news with John Galliano. The finalists will show their collections in September at the Fashion Fringe at Covent Garden catwalk during London Fashion Week!
Fashion Fringe offers something that every young designer hopes for and needs. The finalists will undergo an intensive mentoring programme from industry experts and sponsors in all subjects surrounding the industry and business, from PR to marketing, logistics to sales, brand identity to individuality, and from law to finance. During July and August the designers are given a budget along with studio space at the London College of Fashion to create their capsule collection! It’s difficult enough for most designers to produce two collections a year but having a mentor like Galliano, who produces 35 collections a year including ready-to-wear Galliano and Dior, Haute Couture Dior and John Galliano menswear, is definitely a big win for all three finalists!
