Established in 2011, the Young Designer Award (YDA) is affiliated with the St Andrews Charity Fashion Show (FS), the largest and most successful student run organization in the United Kingdom.
FS is an organization run by young people, and as such, it is important that we give young designers the opportunity to nurture their creativity, skill, and drive. At FS, we are committed to finding the very best young talent, and bringing this talent to the forefront of the fashion industry.
The Young Designer Award is open to young designers from the United Kingdom and Europe who have completed or are completing a degree in fashion, and who have produced at least one collection. To help young designers develop their future work, YDA offers finalists elevated exposure in the fashion industry, and the winner a monetary prize.
