Online luxury and fashion business NET-A-PORTER announced the winners of its inaugural Vanguard Education Fund for final-year university students, in partnership with the British Fashion Council (BFC). NET-A-PORTER’s Vanguard Education Fund aims to nurture emerging talent by offering financial support, dedicated mentoring alongside business support to final-year students. This year’s winners of the Vanguard Education Fund 2022 include Ben Davis, Renato Bras, Finlay Roberts and Maissane Zinai.
The winners of the Vanguard Education Fund will benefit from 3D garment-design training to create technically advanced, digitised products using true-to-life garment visualisation, thereby reducing waste and improving time efficiency when creating samples. NET-A-PORTER has invested in the specialised training and access to the cutting-edge 3D software CLO, covering all associated costs for the designers for one year, equipping them with skills to design for the metaverse. The students will also be paired with two industry-leading mentors for 12 months selected to complement the students’ individual ambitions.
“We are thrilled to announce the inaugural winners of The Vanguard Education Fund and are excited to support the students as they embark on their professional journeys. Our goal is to continually expand our mentorship programmes and offer learnings from our long-standing Vanguard programme to university students to ensure emerging designers have the tools they need for a successful career. The supporting campaign celebrates the best fashion from the most talented up-and-coming designers in the industry, showcasing the individuality and high caliber of brands launched as part of The Vanguard,” stated Libby Page, Market Director, NET-A-PORTER.
Through The Vanguard programme NET-A-PORTER has to date supported 27 brands, 52% of which are BIPOC [black, indigenous and people of colour] owned, on their journey to becoming successful businesses. Each designer is mentored by NET-A-PORTER’s global team of experts who deliver in-depth training that focuses on building a successful business.
