The list spotlights over 50 emerging creatives across disciplines including image-making, styling, makeup artistry, hair styling, set design and casting. Among the people on the list are Issac Poleon, Amber Pinkerton, Quil Lemons, Scandebergs, Elizaveta Porodina, Ola Ebiti, Flora Huddart and Rafael Pavarotti.
This year’s voting system to determine the final list was divided into two steps. Artists on last year’s New Wave: Creatives list were asked to nominate peers, while a newly-formed Steering Committee, which is comprised of prominent industry voices including Carlos Nazario, Olivia Singer, Paloma Elsesser and Adut Akech among others, determined the final 50.
This year’s New Wave creatives will featured in a film by The Fashion Awards, which is set to premiere on Thursday 3 December. The 50 emerging creatives will also benefit from to a year-round programme advocating their work and have access to the British Fashion Council and the Steering Committee.
