Congratulations to Chloe Jones, the fashion student whose star is firmly on the ascendant thanks to her impressive double win at last week's Graduate Fashion Week Awards Gala. The Bath Spa BA student wowed judges including Matthew Williamson and Daphne Guinness with her ethereal, grey-silk take on sports-luxe to scoop the Gold Award for the best student collection of 2012 (a cool ??20,000 from sponsors George), plus the Best Womenswear accolade.
But hers is not the only new name - and face - to note. Nyx Deyn (pictured left) took a step down the path of her supermodel sister, Agyness, as she took part in a Best Of British photo shoot for indie fashion magazine PHOENIX, modelling the creations of GFW participant Sophie Finder. Sophie's collection was highly commended as part of George's 2012 'Best Of British' fashion design competition for Graduate Fashion Week students; first place went to Susanna Yi, who described it as "a dream come true" that her clothes would be sold via George as part of the prize.
Remember their names!
