Gareth Pugh has just won New Generation sponsorship supported by Topshop and holds his first on schedule show in London

Dear Shaded Viewers,

The official London schedule welcomes Gareth Pugh who has just ‘won New Generation
sponsorship supported by Topshop . Topshop seems to be ruling London Fashion Week these days. I’ve heard mixed reactions to what that means  for London fashion.

I first became aware of Gareth and his work when I was the casting director for the French segment of the first reality fashion tv show, Fashion House. Judging by what is on offer these days, perhaps it was a little too soon. France did not yet see the value of a fashion reality tv show at that time and the French designers were the only ones without a tv support.
