A.V Robertson, Mimi Wade and Richard Malone are returning from last season and will be joined by Matty Bovan. Bovan only launched his label in 2016, after graduating from Central St Martins in 2015. He won the L'Oreal Professionnel Creative Award and the LVMH Graduate Prize 2015 for his graduate collection for his knitwear MA, and has worked at Louis Vuitton as junior designer.

Fashion East will feature both catwalk shows and presentations and take place on September 17 in headline sponsor Topshop's show space.

Lulu Kennedy MBE, Director of Fashion East says “We’re hugely proud of all our talented designers and delighted to welcome Matty into the mix – this is my dream line up! It’s super exciting to be hosted in our sponsor Topshop’s venue again, this season in Old Spitalfields Market in the heart of our home, the East End."

The designers were chosen by a panel of editors, buyers and stylists. Sheena Sauvaire, Global Communications and Marketing Director, Topshop, said: "The Fashion East showcase is always a great indicator of the next wave of new talent in our industry. As innovation is at the heart of London, it is a really exciting addition to the schedule and one we are proud to continue to support."

Fashion East was established in 2000 to nurture, develop and showcase emerging designers.
