Grace Wales Bonner, a former Fashion Futures finalist has won the L’Oréal Professionnel Talent Award 2014 at the Central Saint Martins BA Fashion show.
Grace fought off competition from the 39 other students who showcased their collections at the hotly anticipated event which took place earlier this week. Read more about the awards here.
The talented CSM graduate was one of twenty two teenage finalists who took part in the FAD Junior Awards in 2008; the first ever FAD show to be held at Fashion Scout.
Six years on and the young designer from south London is being recognised again for her unique talent this time by the likes of Vogue, Dazed and Hunger Magazine. A massive achievement. Congratulations Grace!
