The lucky British few whose Fall collections will be financially supported are out: Louise Goldin, Danielle Scutt, Meadham Kirchhoff, House of Holland and Peter Pilotto, with Nasir Mazhar, maker of major headgear, winning events sponsorship. The recognition (and ¬£5,000 - ¬£10,000 for about three seasons straight) is a pretty big deal - previous winners who were previously unknown include Matthew Williamson, Christopher Kane, Alexander McQueen, Giles Deacon, Sophia Kokosalaki, and Marios Schwab. And those receiving exhibition sponsorship at the Natural History Museum in South Kensington this September include David David, Felder Felder, Hannah Marshall, Nicolas Kirkwood - and Poltock and Walsh. We're especially happy to see Poltock and Walsh on there again, and since Topshop sponsors the NewGen initiative, we're just going to keep on hoping that their Topshop rumor is just a few months from totally reality...
