Young British Designers
Here in Great Britain we have a tremendous infrastructure in place for up and coming designers: world leading colleges and schools, the mighty British Fashion Council with its relentless dedication to the cause, affiliations with Vogue, Elle, Topshop and more. New designers can sometimes find themselves stocked by amazing retailers from the likes of Topshop to the formidable Matches Fashion, Net-a-Porter, Selfridges and a smattering of gorgeous boutiques the land over. But there was no single retailer purely representing designers based here in the United Kingdom. Until YBD.
