On 3rd December, the FDC Young Designer Awards and Collections Presentation was held at the Pullman St Pancras Hotel to raise funds and awareness of Angelman Syndrome.
Angelman Syndrome is a rare neuro-genetic disorder that causes intellectual and developmental disability, disturbance of sleep, and seizures. It is also characterised by a lot of laughter, smiling, and a happy demeanor.
Joanna Marcella, the founder of the FDC Young Designer Awards, has a grandson with Angelman Syndrome and says that she is "extremely passionate about this cause".
The FDC Young Designer Awards showcased the work from young fashion designers across the world and displayed some exceptional design talent.
Here are some of our favourite looks from the day...

Deborah Glasgow's brand Biblos Glasgow creates bold, original statement jewellery. Worn by models against plain black clothing, jewellery from the 'Human Strength Collection 2017' made an impact at the event. The stand-out pieces showed the potential for jewellery to be artistic, creative, and the focus of an outfit.

The collection won Symons the prestigious Christopher Bailey Gold Award at this year's Graduate Fashion Week. Not only are the designs visually striking, but they are also incredibly innovative, using bolts rather than seams to attach the pieces of fabric together.

Rethinking fashion by using the technique of up-cycling, Pulcini's collection is an important alternative to the culture of fast fashion and waste that is prominent in the contemporary fashion industry.
