Stephen Webster already dazzled us at Baselworld this year with some of his most impressive designs to date, but he’s going to do it again next week at the Couture show when he brings back Rock Vault. Rock Vault is Webster’s way of supporting the next generation of design talent, and he is one industry success who is giving back through booth space and funds to make collections to sell during the show.
This year’s crew includes six of last year’s participants—Imogen Belfield, Fernando Jorge, Jo Hayes Ward, Melanie Georgacopoulos, Yunus & Eliza, and Tomasz Donocik—as well as three newcomers: Jacqueline Cullen, Ornella Iannuzzi, and Alice Cicolini. All are based in the U.K. See them in the Mouton 1 ballroom at Couture, May 29–June 2.
