Felicities Press & Sales Event
Enabling emerging designers to showcase their designs and creations to the press, Felicites PR hosted an evening event located at WeWork on the 22nd November 2016. From contemporary jewellery to sportswear and accessories, there was something for everyone – even the food sampled ensured everyone could taste by being vegan and gluten free (something many miss out on). Emerging designers included Basharatyan V, Caitlin Charles-Jones, Linnie Mclarty, Cru London, Sports Philosophy and Imogen Belifield.
Taking inspiration from the likes of Alison Canavan, Lupe Castro and Alison Lowe all designers showcased originality and their own unique and personal style.
FashionCapital’s top 3 emerging designers from the event includes Basharatyan V, Sports Philosophy and CRU London. Why you ask?
