20 years of fostering fashion talent

Before Kim Jones became the artistic director of Louis Vuitton menswear in 2011; was subsequently appointed creative director at Dior Homme in 2018 (to present); and, most recently, named the new womenswear creative director at Fendi (which happened earlier this month), the London-born designer made a name for himself with Fashion East, as part of its then MAN line-up, the London Fashion Week talent incubator founded by Lulu Kennedy.
