Fashion Enter Join Fashions Finest AW19

19-03-2019   


For a second season members from the Fashion Technology Academy / Fashion Enter were on hand at Fashions Finest to talk to emerging designers about the production services and courses that we provide right here in London. Fashions Finest is a bi-annual event provides a unique platform for up and coming design talent to show off-schedule during London Fashion Week. Held in the heart of London the event includes fashion shows, talks, and pop-up stands.

Jo Price, Senior Lecturer at the FTA attended the event she said:

“It was great to see Gee and Amiyah from Fashion Enter at the AW19 edition of Fashions Finest this weekend (16th February). The pair talked to attendees about the manufacturing side of the business as well as the pattern cutting courses that we run. I watched the 2pm fashion show which showcased 6 designers from around the world and the UK, they were:

Misora Nakamori – France
L’Essayeur – UK
Nitya Singh – India
Helen Kaye – UK
The Kemist – UK
Kepaza – Norway

“The show was great, the designers had strong collections with a mix of styles, silhouettes and influences – all very wearable designs. After the show I met a model agency called Zebedee Management that works with young people and adults with disabilities and additional needs. It was great to hear the River Island had used their disabled models in their advertising campaign promoting inclusivity.

“As you would expect there were some creative people around including this fella who certainly didn’t hold back with his outfit!

“The second fashion show showcased a further 8 designers:

Mary Dickow – Denmark
Pathos – Spain
Olya Sookie – Croatia
Kanna Yeung – UK
Miss Boss Fashion – UK
Linda Blissett – UK
Louisa Moody – Wales
Tuncer Tonun – UK

“The highlight was the finale where Tuncer Tonun showcased a conceptual collection with innovative pattern cutting and shapes and really ended the event on a high. I look forward to seeing what this young man does in the future.”

Congratulations Fashions Finest for a successful event – see you at the next one in September.
