Sophia Webster Triumphs as Winner of British Fashion Council/Vogue Designer Fashion Fund
Whimsical does it.
Sophia Webster, known for her whimsical shoe designs, has just won the prestigious British Fashion Council Vogue Designer Fashion Fund. The judging panel includes top fashion figures such as Victoria Beckham, Samantha Cameron and executives from Topshop, Burberry and Farfetch. On top of a 12-month mentorship, she will also receive £200,000 GBP (about $284,000 USD) to invest in her business. This win came at the right time since the British designer has recently branched out into handbags, with her first line of bags already available at her e-commerce store. Sophia is also expected to open her first retail store in London in April.
