Fashion Fringe Competition @ LFW

One of the most looked-for events at London Fashion Week, Fashion Fringe talent competition announced its winner, yesterday, September 18th, after a press show at Covent Garden.

This year, the contest, known as a true launching pad for international labels such as Basso&Brooke, Sinha-Stanic and Erdem, had Donatella Versace as honorary chairwoman and £100,000 as the money prize.

The Fashion Fringe award went to Korean designer Eun Jeong Hong from Go By a Secret Path label who presented a wonderful all-white collection that included Grecian-inspired draped tunics, cropped slim trousers, sleeveless blazers and outstanding pieces made from several tiers of cotton lace petals.

LF Markey, the label founded by Central Saint Martins MA graduate Louise Markey, who sent down on the runway an array of color-block tiered short dresses that mixed Elizabethan costume and sportswear influences,
