Winner of 2011 BFC/Vogue Designer Fashion Fund

It was announced yesterday that Christopher Kane has won the 2011 BFC/Vogue Designer Fashion Fund. Focused on celebrating talents that have the potential to be successful British labels, this year’s competition saw designers such as Osman Yousefzada, Richard Nicoll, Peter Pilotto, Jonathan Saunders, Patrick Grant, Nicholas Kirkwood and Charlotte Dellal competing against each other. Accordingly to BFC chairman Harold Tillman, designers had to present professional plans and although the competition was incredibly close, Christopher Kane’s success to date and brand development proposition secured him the prize this year.

The prize comprises of £200,000 cash as well as business mentoring from some of the fashion industry’s biggest hitters.

Kane graduated from Central Saint Martins in 2006 and is now designing the Versus collection with Donatella Versace as well as his own label. Kane started his label with his sister Tammy and has since impressed everyone with his distinctive style.
