If you’re looking for the next big designer, look no further than
Anna Mercedes Stephenson Originally from: United Kingdom Bachelor’s Degree: Edinburgh College of Art, UK Collection in one word: "Beautiful." Biggest challenge: "I came straight out of my Bachelor’s program so I wanted to make sure I wasn’t repeating anything I did there. Also, challenging and surprising myself, in itself, were big challenges. If I’m satisfied too quickly, I get annoyed with myself." Favorite material to use: "Cotton because you can do anything with it. I like to watch what materials do by themselves and that’s why for this collection I photographed it, printed it, and photographed it again. You can see I had a relationship with the fabric." Future plans: "Eventually I’d like to do my own thing, but I’m young and the thing I love about fashion is that you’ll never know where it’s going to go. I’m happy to say I don’t know--I love the mystery of it."
Hannah Jenkinson Originally from: United Kingdom Bachelor’s Degree: Brighton College, UK Collection in one word: "Sportcraft." Biggest challenge: "The techniques I used were tough because they were so time-consuming. One of the sweaters took me eight days doing nothing else." Favorite material to use: "Since I’m a knitwear designer, I’d have to say silk yarn is my favorite." Future plans: "I’d love to set up my own brand, but I’d be perfectly happy working for a small designer in New York or Paris."
