Louise Goldin - SS10 - London Fashion Week
The five lucky semi-finalists of the Dorchester Collection Fashion Prize were announced on Tuesday, by a judging panel made up of fashion royalty - Manolo Blahnik, Giles Deacon, The Hon, Elizabeth Saltzman and Gianluca Longo. Louise Goldin, Mary Katrantzou, Chau Har Lee, Hermoine de Paula and Thomas Tait all secured a place in the semi final, with the winner to be announced in November.
The prize gives the winner the opportunity to host their own event at any preferred Dorchester Hotel across the world, as well as granting them a whopping £25,000 prize fund to launch a new collection of ready-to-wear or premium accessories. While the international fashion prize was held in London this year, stateside designers take note - next year's competition will be held at The New York Palace.
