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#/

Beauty on the Catwalk S/S17 with Fashions Finest

Smokey eyes, dewy skin, and nude glossy lips were the trend during this seasons Fashions Finest S/S17 London Fashion Week event.

It's a sultry glam look that's dramatic enough for the catwalk and perfect for a night out. While the dark smokey eye may not be suitable for everyone, this makeup trend is much requested and here to stay.

There are many ways to achieve a smokey eye, and adaptable ways to wear it to enhance your features.

Here are some tips to find your best smokey eye:

Start by applying an eyeshadow primer first. This will allow even blending, prevent creasing, and keep your shadow staying in place.

2: Find the right shape to apply eyeshadow and accentuate your eyes.

It could be that crisp-angled-edges and using tape when applying eyeshadow looks great on you. Or an eyeshadow that's applied to look more "oval (less geometric)" and is blended out to the temple, works best for your face.

However, heavily packed on basic black shadow tends to make the eyes look smaller. The idea is to "open up" your face.

3: Pairing gold or silver eyeshadow (if you're a warm or cool tone) with your black smokey eye is a great way to make your eye color "pop" and add glamour to your look.

Add a bit of shimmer to the inner corner of your eye to make your eyes appear larger and more spaced. You can also add glitter to the center of your lid for dimension.

4: Do use a pencil liner on your upper and lower lids and blend it out. You can also apply eyeshadow close to your lash line (on top of the liner) for added effect.
