Vauxhall Fashion Scout's new round of mentoring Salons are up and running!

Tuesday night saw the first in the new series of Vauxhall Fashion Scout mentoring salons for emerging designers, funded by the LDA.

Sixty fashion designers packed into the Castle Pub in Farringdon to hear a brilliant talk on the topic of sponsorship by our guest speakers Jenico Preston of the British Fashion Council and Simon Ewart from General Motors.

The wine flowed, platefuls of nachos were hungrily consumed and (fingers crossed) everyone who attended will be able to use their new-found knowledge to attract sponsorship- be it financial, products or resources.

Over the next few days we'll be posting all the images of the Salon here and on our Facebook site (search for "Vauxhall Fashion Scout") - so keep checking back to see who was there!

Pens at the ready...
