William Tempest wins first Vauxhall Fashion Scout Merit Award

This season sees the launch of the pioneering Fashion Scout Merit Award, a sponsored catwalk show at the Vauxhall Fashion Scout venue. This year’s winner as judged by a top panel of media, PRs, buyers, and fashion business experts is the hotly-tipped William Tempest. A graduate of the London College of Fashion, Tempest worked for Giles Deacon for two years before moving to Paris to work with Jean Charles de Castelbejac. December 2008 saw Tempest in the press with a dress he designed for Harry Potter actress Emma Watson and his London Fashion Week debut is much anticipated. Tempest commented, "It is fantastic to be the first recipient of Fashion Scout's new sponsorship award as it will not only provide me with a great platform to showcase my work but also the opportunity to develop my label. I'm really looking forward to working with the Vauxhall Fashion Scout team." Hannah Kane
