New Generation Awards – Who won the backing of the British Fashion COuncil

Dear Shaded Viewers,

Along with Philip Utz (Numero), Patrick Cabasset (L’Officiel), Laurent Dombrowicz (Citizen K), Aurelie Lambillon (Jalouse) and a few other French journalists, I was invited to London for the announcement of the New Generation Awards. The first person that I saw at the Gare du Nord was Philip Utz who always makes me laugh, even at 7h in the morning.

We were taken to the Shoreditch House for breakfast before heading over to the Press Conference at Beach Blanket Babylon Shoreditch.

This group shot is not so great, visit the BFC’s site for better images. Out of 100 dossiers, 20 were chosen.
