To Nurture & Support Tomorrow’s Fashion Talent



FashionCapital Newsletter

Wednesday 4th July 2018
Dear all,

Collaboration is key in the fashion industry and it’s by working together that we can truly nurture and support tomorrow’s fashion talent. We are therefore excited to announce a further collaboration with Fashions Finest during this September’s SS19 designer showcase. Fashions Finest provide an off-schedule platform for fashion designers during London Fashion Week and this coming season we will be there to offer support and advice on the much-overlooked production side of the industry.

Jenni Sutton comments: “We are confident that together we can offer the rising stars in the industry the right level of support and exposure they deserve.”
