UK’s CFE adds two new designers to Yota programme

Oct 22, 2015

The London-based Centre for Fashion Enterprise is welcoming two new young designer labels to its Yota Programme, which supports designers from Mediterranean countries by offering them guidance in the fields of finance, legal, manufacturing and marketing.

Muslin Brothers, from Israel and Bashaques, from Turkey, will begin their six month residency in November at CFE’s Mare Street Studios.

Wendy Malem, Director at CFE, commented: “Fashion has no borders. We believe that fashion is influenced by diversity, culture and society, which drives our insatiable appetite for new ideas. For this reason we have invited some ‘new voices’ to London, talented designers from Mediterranean countries who will take up a six-month residency and join the creative fashion designer community here.”

The YOTA programme will provide them an opportunity to receive crucial support from the CFE and extend networks with key contacts in the United Kingdom to benefit their business in their home country.

CFE was born in 2003 as a talent incubator and some of its successful stories include Erdem, Richard Nicoll, Peter Pilotto and Mary Katrantzou.
