Fashion Fringe

Are you wanting to break into the industry? 

Listen up, because if you are, then this post is just for you!

Fashion Fringe is an annual award platform - founded in 2003 by Colin McDowell in conjunction with IMG Fashion - offering talented emerging designers the chance to launch their label in London through a mixture of mentoring, studio space, financial support and (the best part) a catwalk show at London Fashion Week.

From the 12th - 20th of March 2012, Fashion Fringe will be embarking on a regional tour of UK Universities  - coinciding with the opening of the application process on the 12th - along with a panel of the UK's fashion elite to offer fashion students and local professionals advice on how to make it big and succeed in such a competitive industry.

The tour dates are as follows;

Edinburgh - 12th March - Christopher Kane
Newcastle - 13th March - Gareth Pugh
Manchester - 14th March - Matthew Williamson
Nottingham - 15th March - Giles Deacon
Brighton - 19th March - Julien McDonalds
London - 20th March - Erdem

Each speaker on the tour will talk about their own experiences in their careers and offer networking opportunities for those attending. If you would like to attend, admission is free for students - tickets are limited for other members of the public - and you will be required to pre-register by emailing
