The most major thing to happen to design duo Peter Pilotto and Christopher de Vos in 2014? (Yep, we’re already calling it.) Winning the BFC/Vogue Designer Fashion Fund Award, which is the same idea as the CFDA Awards, just based in the UK.
Their clothing line, Peter Pilotto, has been around for seven years. And now, with this honor, the designers will receive $330,000 in funding and a one-year mentorship from the likes of Topshop, Paul Smith, and more to bring their brand to the next level.
Alexandra Shulman, editor of British Vogue and chair of the BFC/Vogue Designer Fashion Fund, said it best: “Christopher and Peter are deserved winners of this year’s Fund award. They have remained true to their vision of a print- and colour-focused brand, but have managed to expand and grow the business to a level where they can now compete on an international stage. It’s a pleasure to be able to support them.”
