Evening Standard Names 10 Fashion Faces To Watch
Picked by Fashion Editor Karen Dacre and Emma McCarthy, the list features emerging models, casting directors and designers who are set to make waves over the coming year.
The list kicks off with Rosie Tapner (left), an emerging model who had already scored her first Balenciaga campaign at the tender age of 15. Tapner has since gone on to model for the likes of Burberry, Chloe and graced the cover of Vogue.
Several designers feature amongst the 10, including Claire Barrow (clutch bag below right), whose fans include Rihanna, and London-based Nicholas Kirkwood who has been credited with putting British accessory design firmly on the map this year after being awarded Vogue’s prestigious Fashion Fund Award.
Other designers include JW Anderson, nominated for his incredibly successful design collaboration with Topshop as well as his increasingly popular eponymous label and accessories designer Sophie Hulme is also highlighted for her emerging label and signature quiet luxury style, and finally new-comer Craig Green whose impressive collaborators include Adidas and Christopher Shannon.
Kate Reardon is the only editor to appear in the 10. The Editor in Chief of Tatler UK has been credited for injecting her unique tongue-in-cheek humour to the prestigious magazine.
Casting Director Jess Hallett has been dubbed one of the most influential casting director’s in the industry and has maintained a collaborative relationship with Alexander McQueen spanning 10 years.
Tammy Kane, business partner and sister to Christopher Kane, is the driving force behind the Kane empire and is still heavily involved in the creative aspects of the hugely successful brand.
Finally, Gary Card, the artist and set designer makes his debut on the Power 1000 after working with some of the biggest names in the fashion world and even creating headpieces for Lady Gaga.
The annual Power 1000, in association with Battersea Power Station, will reveal the entire list of the most influential people in London on 19th September at Battersea Power Station. The celebratory evening event will be the last held in the Boiler Room at the iconic venue before the site is transformed into one of the most ambitious redevelopments in the capital. The night will feature Boris Johnson, who was named the most influential Londoner in the list last year, as guest speaker.
The list, recognises the most influential people throughout the whole of London – from the finance district, to theatre, to technology and politics – and is picked by a panel of specialist Evening Standard reporters and critics.
