The Young Designer Award is a platform created by the St Andrews Charity Fashion Show for upcoming UK-based emerging designers and runs alongside the nine-month FashionShow fundraising and fashion campaign centred on shows in both London and St Andrews. The show is the largest student-run fashion show in the UK and in it’s 23 years has raised over £300,000 for charities.
This year marks the fifth edition of The Young Designer Award that offers young designers a platform to showcase their work alongside high-profile names such as Nicole Fahri, Victoria Beckman, Tommy Hilfiger, in a unique mix of emerging and established talents.
Five finalists of the competition will showcase their collections at the St Andrews Charity Fashion Show – the largest of its kind in the UK – in front of an audience of national and international press.
The winner will receive a cash prize of £1000.
