Menswear designer, Manchester School of Art graduate and GFW15 Gold Award Winner, Hannah Wallace has recently been selected as one of only eight emerging designers to participate in the 'House of Peroni' initiative.
The new residency program, created by Italian beer brand Peroni Nastro Azzurro awards eight talented young designers the opportunity to receive a seven-month residency at its start-up in London and showcase during London Fashion Week next February.
Hannah is known for championing practicality and wearability, by using breathable fabrics throughout her work- finding inspiration in the protective garments worn by rioters and astronauts. Since winning the GFW Gold Award in 2015, Hannah has been freelancing for Topman and working as a Menswear Designer for COLLECTIVE.
A huge congratulations to Hannah, who alongside Joel Boyd, Kyle Lo Monaco, Rose Danford-Phillips, Pelin Isildak, Daniel Crabtree, Matthew Duffy and Stacey Wall, will relocate to East London and begin designing her collection.
The emerging designers were chosen from hundreds of applicants by The House of Peroni’s creative council, which includes designer Jonathan Saunders, journalists Pandora Sykes and Alexander Fury, and British Fashion Council co-curator Anna Orsini.
