Richard Malone, who earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in fashion last year from Central Saint Martins, has already attracted the attention of some of the industry’s big guns — in 2013 he was awarded the Grand Prix LVMH scholarship, which supported his graduate collection. After launching his own label last February for fall, the Ireland-born, London-based designer will show in September for the first time as part of the Topshop-sponsored Fashion East collective on Sept. 19.

Polish-born and German-raised, the designer honed her design skills working with Hussein Chalayan, Alexander Wang, Jonathan Saunders and Bruno Pieters before setting up her own label last year, after earning her degree.
After graduating in 2011 from Winchester School of Art, JH Zane trained at Katie Eary’s and Gareth Pugh’s studios, whilst at the same time establishing himself as a free-lance stylist.
