Fashion Fringe constantly strives to increase and further our support of the emerging designers who are part of the platform. In order to expand this, in 2008 we started a new initiative – ‘Fashion Fringe Shoes’ – in conjunction with Rupert Sanderson, one of London’s brightest accessories designers.
Due to the success of the award, in 2009 we expanded the shoes category to include bag with Jimmy Choo. Fashion Fringe Accessories was born.
In 2011, we had the pleasure and excitement of partnering with iconic, luxury fashion house Roger Vivier – a partnership that we are delighted to continue in 2012.
Fashion Fringe Accessories is a search for a budding shoe designer who will receive a six-month salaried working apprenticeship placement within the vibrant environment of a leading luxury fashion house.
The tailored programme is designed to provide the winner with intensive exposure to all aspects of the luxury accessories business from design and development, to dealing with the press and wholesale account management.
As most leading luxury Fashion houses are based abroad in either France or Italy, our Apprentices are often also exposed to the exciting challenges and rich rewards of living and working in another country, learning a new language and embracing European culture within a fashion context.
For the 2nd year running, Fashion Fringe and Roger Vivier are looking for an exciting accessories designer of shoes, who clearly demonstrates leading creativity and joie de vivre.
The winner will be offered a six-month apprenticeship at Roger Vivier in Paris from February 2013 to work in the Luxury design house throughout the different teams and divisions.
