Last Night Was A Big Deal For New Designers
It seems only appropriate for three individual, equally-esteemed fashion organizations to honor a whole slew of up-and-coming designers just a week before the industry's biggest celebration of style: fashion month. With New York Fashion Week just days away, the British Fashion Council/Vogue Designer Fashion Fund, H&M's Design Award and Fashion Group International all honored rising, exceptionally talented designers at their own respective events yesterday evening. The award winners ranged from the more well-known (including Peter Pilotto and Warby Parker) to the niche (Edmundo Castillo, and even a 24-year-old French fashion student still in school), but there's at least one consistency across the board: these designers have chops.
Click through above now to meet the winners from all three events—and expect to see a lot more of them in future fashion weeks.
