New British Voices

There are two things that connect the three upcoming designers Ashley Williams, Claire Barrow and Ed Marler: they are all graduates of London fashion schools (Westminster and CSM) and they are all Fashion East or NEWGEN alumni. Aptly named, they represent a new generation of London designers breaking through nationally and internationally. But as opposed to the 90’s kids who could struggle for a decade to get their feet on the ground in the market, these new talents seem increasingly business-savvy, with the help of support schemes and marketing. Despite the obvious financial and PR-advantages for such schemes, should we (as creatives) be suspicious of them? What are the politics of corporate backing, and what characterises the designers who manage to acquire such support?

Ode to Luella Bartley and Katie Hillier at Marc by Marc...

In an essay about Luella Barley, Ana Kinsella -- the editor of our first issue -- wrote: "F Scott Fitzgerald wrote that there are no second acts in American lives, but luckily, English girls have never had that problem. At least, not according to Luella Bartley, who has posited seven – seven! – ages of the English girl, from 'school daze' to 'recessionista' and finally 'granny nirvana'. She’s a living embodiment of that school of thought, too. In her own career she hopped from St Martins kid to Evening Standard fashion assistant through to the glory days of her eponymous label and sadly, its liquidation in 2009. Girls and women of many different stripes wailed in despair at the news."
