The world’s leading online designer platform, NOT JUST A LABEL, has started The Future of Fashion Program in collaboration with WHO’S NEXT in Paris, a stepping stone for emerging designers to grow internationally and showcase at the most internationally renowned fashion trade show in Europe.
From NOT JUST A LABEL’s international portfolio of over 14,000 talents worldwide, 10 accessory and 10 ready-to-wear emerging designers were selected to take part in this unique opportunity to exhibit for up to 4 seasons at WHO’S NEXT trade show in Paris as well as benefit from guidance and mentoring from top fashion industry professionals for two years.
In January 2014, these 20 selected designers showcased their Autumn/Winter 2014-15 collections at the WHO’S NEXT trade show. Väska was presented among 9 other talented accessory designers in the accessory-led PREMIERE CLASSE area. After a hard evaluation process, only half of them were invited back for July 2014.
