earth | air | water | fire
experiencing, first, the elemental
Water, Air, Earth
interrupted with construction
A shift, discovering fire
both fundamental and enabling
concretising the power to both build and destroy
elemental in fashion design
the materials, the utensils, the idea:
finding inspiration from other mediums of art
from folklore and the natural world around them
from various cultures and their heritage.
Our origins are our muse.
Young Designer Award 2019
We have shortlisted five innovative designers to produce a collection for our show in February. The overarching mission of the award is to champion sustainable fashion, whereby designers must use a specified list of accepted materials created by our YDA team. The finalists will present their collections in February before a panel on fashion-industry professionals from which one designer will be announced as the winner. All YDA collections will be presented on the FS2019 catwalk in front of our 1600+ attendees.
