Fashions Finest Launches Crowdfunding Campaign

Fashions Finest, one of the most popular independent shows on the London Fashion Week calendar launches a crowdfunding campaign ahead of London Fashion, for their new designer section.

Despite being an established fixture on London’s Fashion Week circuit, the event receives little to no sponsorship.

Director Deborah St Louis felt compelled to start this campaign after she observed a record number of designers struggling to launch and grow their fashion business with the increasing economic pressures businesses and individuals are facing. 

Deborah St Louis said: “We have an incredible pool of untapped and undiscovered talent here in the UK. While we accept and welcome established brands, much of our work is with new and emerging designers. Many of these designers, are fresh out of University or without formal fashion training. We are here to level the playing field for those challenged by the high fees associated with studying, designing and creating their collection, and building a career for themselves in a way that ensures sustainability.

We have launched our crowdfunding campaign to allow graduate and new designers to participate in one of the most important international events; London Fashion Week.

Not only do we offer a viable alternative for designers to showcase and market their brand during London Fashion Week, but through our partner Fashion Capital designers also have access to additional education as well as manufacturers. Furthermore, we have now launched our online store which gives designers an opportunity to have their first retail presence. Yet despite an incredible price-point for many, the fees remain out of reach. As a company, we just aren’t able to absorb these costs and especially so because of the impact of with rising venue and production costs. We are proactively addressing these challenges and sourcing the most viable solutions”

Fashions Finest has propelled the careers of Hellavagirl, John Herrera, and Matthew O’Brian to name a few who have all gone on to achieve national and international media attention online, in print and on TV and regularly feature some of the hottest brands on their catwalks or in their exhibition space, as worn by Paloma Faith, Beyonce, Nicki Minaj, and Madonna and more. Attracting national and international fashion talent, Fashions Finest regularly draws a crowd of fashion industry experts, press and VIP’s from business, sport, entertainment, music and film industry, who all come to discover the hottest new trends on display.

The crowdfunding campaign offers exciting perks from beauty products, unique designer brands, show tickets and more to support the campaign visit: https://igg.me/at/graduatedesignerlfwshow2019/x/22077560#/
