If London is the world’s cutting edge fashion capital, Vauxhall Fashion Scout (VFS) is one of its most recognised platforms for uncovering future talent. See latest award winner Phoebe English!

Having acted as the springboard for the like of David Koma, William Tempest, Peter Pilotto, Louise Amstrup to name but few, with the Merit Award, its role as ‘scout’ was somewhat made official. Seasonally awarded, based on the decision of a panel of prestige judges (this year including stylist Katy England, ID’s Holly Shackleton, Vogue.com’s Jessica Bumpus among other), the latest recipient is Phoebe English. Previously, Phoebe was awarded ‘the ones to watch’, which is VFS’s talent spotting initiative, at the very early stage. Central Saint Martins Graduate, Phoebe English designs luxury womenswear by returning to lost, forgotten or little-used techniques. Martyn Roberts, Director, Vauxhall Fashion Scout explains why she was a winner: ‘Phoebe English has demonstrated a remarkable design talent which is reflected in the make of each piece. From her graduate collection through her Ones To Watch show she has explored individual techniques and is developing a unique vision of design. With the Merit Award she will be able to take this further and to an even wider audience.’
