The BFC/Vogue Fashin fund: shortlist announced.

The full shortlist of the British Fashion Council (BFC) and Vogue’s designer fashion fund was announced this week.
The shortlisted designers will showcase the best developing Womenswear and Accessories labels and designers in Brit fashion today, and could potentially develop their label into global brands.

Now in it’s 3rd year the BFC/Vogue Fashion fund will provide one British designer £200,000 to invest in developing the brand as well as an amazing mentoring support programme over the next 12 months.

All the runners up will also be allocated a mentor through the programme and the judging panel will announce a winner in the March issue of British vogue.

This year’s shortlisted designers are Jonathan Saunders, Marios Schwab, Mary Katrantzou, Meadham Kirchhoff, Nicholas Kirkwood, Peter Pilotto, Richard Nicoll, Roksanda Ilincic and Zoe Jordan.

Check out pieces from the shortlisted designers SS12 collections.
