LFW: Three young designers to watch


Designers to watch

Ah, London! The hub of creativity and young, emerging talent. But there’s just so many, it’s hard to know who to keep an eye out for this LFW.

Luckily our Catwalks Associate Editor, Anna Ross is at hand to give us the low down of the next big names to know.


Richard Quinn.


Richard Quinn

Called out in our Brands to Watch for 2018, Central Saint Martins graduate Richard Quinn is new to the London Fashion Week schedule this season  – set to make waves with his bold and experimental textiles, prints and high-fashion handwriting. Richard describes his vision as “Bold and unafraid. Beautifully crafted garments ethically made in London.” See our coverage from Richard Quinn’s runway on Tuesday from 4pm.


Dilara Findikoglu

Dilara Findikoglu

Not for the faint hearted, Turkish designer Dilaria’s  fantastical aesthetic channels Goth meets Victoriana. Seeped in historical reference, Dilaria’s designs are elaborate and intricate, loved by fashion royalty from Rhianna to FKA Twigs. See our coverage from Dilaria’s show on Monday from 3 pm over on our Instagram.


Matty Bovan

Matty Bovan

On our radar for a while now, Bovan’s eccentric personal style translates into his super-eclectic designs. Think crocheted knits, high-fusion prints and hand-crafted detailing – more is more with Matty. Tune in for a visual feast of colour and texture from Friday 6pm over on our Instagram.
