The British Fashion Council has revealed the names of its Rock Vault jewellery showcase to be held during London Fashion Week in September

Launched in January 2012, the Rock Vault is a project by the British Fashion Council that provides a platform for emerging jewellery creatives to display their designs at Somerset House during London Fashion Week.

Designs by newcomers Shimell and Madden plus Beth Gilmour (above) will join existing exhibitors Alice Cicolini, Hannah Martin, Imogen Belfield, Jacqueline Cullen, Jo Hayes Ward, Ornella Iannuzzi, Tomasz Donocik and Yunus & Eliza.

As well as exhibition space, they will also be provided with mentoring and sponsorship to help establish their respective labels. This year marked the first time that two of the designers, that were a part of the original line-up – Fernando Jorge and Melanie Georgacopoulos – graduated to showing their collections independently, proving that the initiative has had a successful start.

"After five seasons at LFW, three international and two UK retail events, Rock Vault is now established as the premier global mentoring initiative for the best emerging talent in the jewellery industry," said Stephen Webster, who is also curator of the Rock Vault.
