Nicholas Samuel MD Hobbs: Profile is as good as… if not better than LFW





Nick Samuel



Profile is a unique event. Born out of the need to showcase true emerging designer talent Profile provides a platform from Graduate Fashion Week to London Fashion Week. Backed by major retailers Hobbs, House of Fraser, Debenhams and Whistles and partnered with WCTA Profile has received outstanding industry recognition.




“It’s important to be involved and support initiatives that help promote home-grown fashion design talent.  The UK has a long history of producing fashion greats – it’s an important tradition that we must look to maintain.”

Isabella Blow, Stylist



“I love British fashion!  Some of the greatest fashion craftsmen have trained in the UK and they have produced awe-inspiring garments that have gone on to influence the next generation of designers.  Events such as this provide additional outlets for the future of British fashion.”

Gerry DeVeaux, Songwriter/Producer



” I have been to many many fashion shows during my career as a supermodel, actress and a presenter but I am so impresses with tonight’s fashion show.  It’s hard out there for designers to amke it happen but Profile is just what fashion is all about.  The calibre of designers on show tonight is outstanding.”

It is also with great anticipation that the catwalk finalists are currently being reviewed. Regrettably the decision can not be announced today as the calibre of the designers was so high this season and choice was too “overwhelming”. Designers have been shortlisted and will be contacted within the next five days for a further review.
