They were also joined by a panel special guest Judges from the media and fashion world, who included: Alexandra Icart Jeansation’s CEO, Des Cooke (sponsoring the Young Designer Awards) Jemima Rose Designer Brand, Radhika Sathe Fashion Editor of Niji Magazine, Fatima Wesson Fashion Editor of Love Brown Style Magazine, Hapsatou Doro Fashion Editor EKyRA Magazine and Janelle Oswald Celebrity/News Reporter for GV Media Group.

Deciding the winners was a tough call to make and we judges sure had a hard time! You could see the designers’ ideas and their translation into the collection distinctly and it made me realise how much creativity is out there waiting to be recognised. The FDC Young Designer Awards and the Radical Designer Awards and of course, the Celebration of Young Fashion Designers Awards are wonderful platforms for the talent from different age groups to showcase at.”
