Yes its that time of year again, The exciting countdown to Spring/Summer 2013 Fashion Week begins as British Fashion Council have announced the thirteen names of the NEWGEN recipients for spring summer 2013. Here at fashion Week Cardiff we are exited to see the names on the list to watch out for.

The NEWGEN scheme was set up in 1993 by the British Fashion Council to spot and support fledging designers as they get their careers off the ground with 2012 seeing Topshop celebrating its 10th year of NEWGEN sponsorship.The support through the sponsorship morphs the design talent of today into the fashion brands of tomorrow.

NEWGEN showcases the best emerging British based fashion talent. Since its launch, its alumni include Alexander McQueen, Julian Macdonald, Giles Deacon, Jonathan Saunders, Christopher Kane, Marios Schwab, Richard Nicoll, RoksandaIlincic, Erdem, Meadham Kirchhoff, Peter Pilotto, Mary Katrantzou, David Koma, Louise Gray and Holly Fulton. NEWGEN designers are among the must-see collections on schedule every season.
Simone Rocha will this season receive catwalk sponsorship alongside Michael van der Ham and JW Anderson. These designers contribute something unique and vibrant to the look of London, from Simone Rocha's girly/androgynous fusion with a luxe finish to Michael van der Ham's beautiful mish-mash of appliqu├ęd, patchworked, embellished creations. We're looking forward to seeing what our newest collaborator, JW Anderson, creates for his SS13 show.
Presentation sponsorship has been awarded to ChristopherRaeburnJJS Lee, LucasNascimento, Marques Almeida, Nasir Mazhar, and Sister by Sibling. Exhibition sponsorship has been awarded to Palmer/HardingHuishan Zhang, Lim Cooper, and Sophia Webster.
