Fashion Fringe 2012 Award finalists, chosen by Burberry chief creative officer Christopher Bailey, have been revealed as Haizhen Wang, Teija Eilola and Vita Gottlieb.
The winners were revealed at Burberry’s London headquarters last night, after the 10 semi-finalists had their technical abilities critiqued at the London College of Fashion.
Speaking at the event, Christopher Bailey said: “It goes without saying that every application we received was strong and this, in combination with the level of technical skill demonstrated and the amount of effort and attention to detail, was just so impressive. Going through the portfolios in stage one of this process was incredible, but meeting the Finalists in person today was truly inspirational.”
The three finalists will now be mentored for a year by industry experts, including the creative team at Burberry, receive financial support and studios at the London College of Fashion, before showing their collection at this September’s London Fashion Week.
