The womenswear winners of London’s NewGen sponsorships were announced earlier this week, and now the prize is spotlighting the men: J.W. Anderson, Christopher Shannon, and James Long will show their menswear on the runway during LFW’s Man Day, while Lou Dalton, Katie Eary, Omar Kashoura, and knit wits Sibling will have their presentations supported. (Men’s designer Christopher Raeburn, who was listed among the winners yesterday, will also have his installation underwritten.) [Vogue U.K.]
It’s time (again) for Diane von Furstenberg to clear some space on her mantel: The indefatigable designer will receive amfAR’s Award of Courage—alongside President Bill Clinton and Elizabeth Taylor—at the AIDS research nonprofit’s silver anniversary gala next year. [WWD]

London is famously supportive of its young designers, and today, the British Fashion Council announced the 18 who will be the beneficiaries of the NewGen sponsorship at London fashion week in February.
Holly Fulton, Louise Gray, Mary Katrantzou, David Koma, and Michael van der Ham will all be presenting shows on the catwalk, supported by NewGen. Christopher Raeburn, Craig Lawrence, J. JS Lee, and milliner Nasir Mazhar will hold presentations; jewelers Dominic Jones and Jordan Askill will stage installations; and menswear designer J.W. Anderson will screen a film. There’ll also be a larger exhibition featuring the work of all of the designers above, plus Dorchester Prize finalists Chau Har Lee and Thomas Tait, Fannie Schiavoni, Felicity Brown, Yang Du, and Finnish designer Heikki Salonen.

We confess: It’s hard to click through our complete London coverage without getting a little covetous of the goods hitting the English runways. But good news has arrived for stateside shoppers looking to get their hands on some U.K. goods: The British Fashion Council and the e-retailer thecorner.com have teamed up to offer some of the best of British fashion on sale online. Five emerging London designers—all from the BFC’s LONDON show ROOMS initiative—are offering Fall pieces on a dedicated mini-site on The Corner, just in time for LFW. Get your Faster by Mark Fast, Christopher Raeburn, Todd Lynn, Michael Lewis London, and Mary Katrantzou (including this eye-popping print dress, left), as well as exclusive video content from the designers themselves. Shipping, it goes without saying, is worldwide. If you can’t get to London, at least you can get London to you.
