Vauxhall Fashion Scout has announced its springâsummer 2011 line-up for London Fashion Weekâs new-talent showcase, Ones To Watch. The four labels are A.Hallucination, Charlotte Taylor, Georgia Hardinge and Lilee, who will display their designs in a collective show next month.
Previous Ones to Watch designers have included Hermione de Paula, Alice Palmer, Ada Zanditon, Dean Quinn and Eudon Choi.
A.Hallucination sees two Central St Martinâs graduates, Hwan Sung Park and Chung Chung Lee, create a cutting-edge menswear. The pair have already worked for numerous fashion houses including Burberry, Alexander McQueen, Tom Ford, Ozwald Boateng and Lie Sang Bong Paris.
Charlotte Taylor, whose label was launched at the autumnâwinter 2010â11 London Fashion Week Designer Exhibition, is the second label. Her autumn collection was inspired by âtrashy grannies, penguins and English eccentricsâ, and will shortly be available from Coggles and Young British Designers. Taylor had previously worked for Luella.
Georgina Hardinge, an alumna of Parsons Paris School of Art and Design and the winner of the Golden Thimble for her graduate show, is inspired by architectural shapes and sculpture. Her fans include Little Boots, the Saturdays and Erin OâConnor.
Finally, Lilee, a graduate of the London College of Fashion MA programme and the winner of a highly commendable prize at her graduate show at the V&A this January, displays true attention to detail and elegance. Her designs will shortly be available at ASOS.
Ones to Watch is chosen by panel of industry experts who have extensive experience in working with and promoting new talent including Vogue.com, Browns Focus, ASOS and Tank.
