Fashion East

Organisation

Fashion East is a non-profit designer support and showcasing initiative founded by the Old Truman Brewery and Lulu Kennedy MBE in 2000.

Fashion East and its menswear scheme MAN, have launched the careers of some of the UK’s most prolific design talent, including Simone Rocha, Marques'Almeida, Gareth Pugh, Roksanda Ilinčić, JW Anderson and Kim Jones.

Designers are selected by a high profile panel of industry experts who offer guidance and mentoring support throughout the season. As part of the scheme, designers receive a bursary, free show venue and catwalk show production, photography and videography of the event. Additionally, designers are taken to Paris to hold sales appointments with international stores, a crucial part of a brand’s business growth.
