The 'Who Is On Next?' Winners are revealed in Rome
A new fashion talent crop
A new wave of creative fashion talent is unearthed as the winners of the Who Is On Next? 2015 competition are announced. Buro 24/7's own Mira Duma was there every step of the way, as a member of the jury, deliberating on the final selections in the celebrated contest, organised by AltaRoma and Vogue Italia.
British designer Lee Wood, founder of womenswear label L72, has emerged as this year's victor, winning over the jury with his collection of womenswear designs. The judges cited "the maturity he showed in presenting the collection and his reinterpretation of the iconic Fifties' silhouette in a modern and sporty key," as part of his outstanding performance.
Other winners include Giannico's Nicolò Beretta and Carol Oyekunle of Lolita Lorenzo, who picked up the award for the best footwear and bag collections, respectively.
Italian e-tailer Yoox.com (who are in the process of merging with Net-a-Porter) will give all the winners the chance to create and sell one of their special pieces on the Website. Congratulations to the winners.
