A panel of industry experts including Lisa Bryne, Design Director at Warehouse, and Caroline Rush, the Chief Executive at the BFC, chose this year’s winner Philli Wood whose final collection, which was showcased at the University of Westminster Graduate show in May 2013, presented exceptional ability, innovation and relevance to the current and future profile of the Warehouse brand.

Topshop Unique is one of the only high street brands to show at London Fashion Week, attracting a crowd of the most style savvy celebs and top industry specialists such as Anna Wintour, Kate Moss, Daisy Lowe and Poppy Delevinge who went to see the showing of the label’s Autumn/Winter 2014 collection. Eager to see what styles and trends lay ahead, this unveiling of the latest range promises an abundance of texture, print and layering.
The mixture of top notch designs and impeccable styling makes Topshop Unique a fashion force to be reckoned with. Injected with an almost tomboy theme the models, including British beauty Jourdan Dunn, rocked numerous high-end looks to rival big named designers.

It’s crazy to think London Fashion Week has been and gone! In a flurry of clothing, accessories and makeup, top designers showcased an array of exciting upcoming trends that will have the fashion world buzzing for weeks. Included in the line-up was Venezuelan-born designer Liz Black who, for her Autumn/Winter 2014 presentation in connection with Fashion Scout, collaborated with Face Lace which produces non-fade, non-smudge ready-to-wear makeup designs to create an ultimate beauty statement.
Liz chose to set up her own label to give her the freedom to express her individual creativity. Her designs exude a minimal and elegant aesthetic with the focus being on wearable statement pieces with a timeless appeal, emphasising chic and impeccably tailored structures that complement the feminine silhouette.
For the designer’s AW14 collection, surrealist painter Salvador Dali was the muse so there was a bountiful array of minimalistic outfits with hints of eccentric detailing such as the bold lips featured as the hem of a dress. To compliment these intriguing looks, founder of Face Lace Phyllis Cohen designed beautiful ready-to-flaunt makeup looks which added to the surreal theme of the presentation.
Liz Black said:
“Phyllis and I had an instant connection. When I first mentioned Dali I could see sparkles in her eyes. We couldn’t have understood each other any better.”
