Fashion and style aren’t usually concepts that exorcise most of us. We take what we see for granted, and generally buy into the latest trends and fashions simply because that’s what’s on offer in the shops when we go to the high street. For some, however, fashion is more like a religion: they scour the magazines for the current trends and scrutinise the cat walks for the latest looks. Whether you’re a fashion sceptic or not, fashion is vital to the UK’s economy: it’s estimated that high-end fashion now contributes £21 billion to the economy each year. However, getting to work in the industry is far more difficult than you might expect. Moreover, making a name in the industry and carving out a reputation is all but impossible, without help, mentoring and guidance. Unless you have the inside track and know someone with contacts, then the doors to future fortune are firmly closed. So the world of high fashion has decided to take a stand and has come up with the idea of Fashion Fringe. Fashion Fringe is an annual project, launched to find,ray ban new wayfarer 2132, nurture, mentor and promote undiscovered talent within British fashion design.

McDowell’s belief was that in order to keep British fashion strong, it must be invigorated by the introduction of new sustainable talent. Fashion Fringe is the nationwide search for such talent.
The challenge for 2011 was to reinvent a sense of adventure and creativity in the London fashion scene. Fashion Fringe’s aim was to support and promote cutting-edge, iconoclastic talent in both design and creativity which would continue the rich traditions of world class designers like Vivienne Westwood, Hussein Chalayan and the late Alexander McQueen.
