Review - Fashion Scouts 'Ones to Watch' SS19Review
The Fashion Scout collaborative showcase ‘Ones to Watch’ is instrumental in raising the profile of emerging design talent globally. One of the first places to see the very best in new UK and international design talent, Ones to Watch provides a catwalk showcase for the brightest emerging designers.
This season at Ones To Watch we discovered a new brand that stood out amongst all the others we saw, offering a clear brand signature and cohesive collection that shows huge potential for the future. Nous Etudions is an Argentine brand created by designer Romina Cardillo in 2014. It’s philosophy is linked to sustainability, veganism and non-gender traditions. The reformulation of traditional tailoring, the handling of monochrome whilst defining the colour palette, the oversized predominant silhouettes and the experimentation of handmade textiles is what defines the Nous Etudions as a minimalist brand.
The other two brands participating in Ones to Watch also showed potential -
Price on Request - Based in Zagreb, Croatia, Price on Request is an award-winning multi gender brand. independent and aware of today’s wants and needs, they create clothes that speak to courageous and bold individuals with a strong sense of self.
Aucarre is a brand which emphasizes feminine power by elevating and giving voice to all women. As new designers, they are very much intrigued by making their own stories and creating contemporary characters using pioneering fabrication, contemporary aesthetic and luxury style elements. Founded by the twin designers with Greek origins; Eirini and Dimitra who both after graduating with a BSc in bimolecular and genetic science, moved to London to study fashion and arts at Central Saint Martins in BA fashion design with print and knitwear.
