NEWGEN will now encompass Accessories (including all categories such as shoes, bags, hats, jewellery & fine jewellery). Historically NEWGEN has always been open to accessories, and now Rock Vault and Headonism will be absorbed under the NEWGEN initiative, demonstrating the breadth and depth of emerging talent we have, across all designer fashion categories in the UK. We will have specific panels - one focused on Ready to Wear (RTW) and the other on Accessories. Sarah Mower MBE will lead the RTW panel and Stephen Jones OBE and Stephen Webster MBE will lead the Accessories panel alongside other accessories experts.

Headonism was a British Fashion Council initiative curated by Stephen Jones, which celebrated the new wave of emerging British milliners. It showcased emerging British milliners within an installation at London Fashion Week.

The initiative was launched during the BFC’s 25 year celebrations by previous Mayor of London Boris Johnson.
