Fashion Fringe had some very strong contenders for S/S 2013. With three designers that were equally talented but with all very different styles, Chair Christopher Bailey along with Creative Director Colin McDowell had to choose a winner and I can see why they choose Haizhen Wang. With his strong structured cuts, japanese inspired wraps and added loose tailoring, the collection was the strongest at the show and I so look forward to what designer Haizhen does next.
Teija Eilola and Vita Gottlieb were also contenders in this years Fashion Fringe and both designers created some very commercial yet creative collections that are experimental with textures and celebrated the fun and style we can have with Fashion.
