TopShop and the New Generation initiative just announced their fall Fashion Week picks, and here are the kids whose shows will be funded: Christopher Kane (Versace consultant and Carine darling...) Danielle Scutt (our new favorite eccentric, at left...) Duro Olowu (a Nigerian print fanatic with magical silk dresses...) Erdem (who won the Fashion Fringe award a year ago...) Gareth Pugh (our favorite mad scientist...) Louise Golden (a knitwear guru who claimed her last collection was influenced by Burkas...) Marios Schwab (who won the British Fashion Award last year...) Todd Lynn (a rock band costumer, and the only menswear designer on the bill...) The awards alleviate the financial pressure of showing this fall, but they also bring new stress: If you've been dubbed The Next Big Thing by all of Britain, you'd think every stitch was sewing your fate. Of course, the real mark of a New Gen designer hitting it big is when their sponsor, TopShop, starts ripping off their catwalk collection... or have we forgotten their brief romance with rave t-shirts?
