The designer — named an Emerging Talent at last month's British Fashion Awards and tapped (two days later) to be Versus's first post-Kane collaborator — is among the fourteen NEWGEN recipients for London Fashion Week fall 2013. Anderson and Simone Rocha each won catwalk sponsorships; Christopher Raeburn, J.JS Lee, Lucas Nascimento, Marques'Almeida, Nasir Mazhar, Sister by Sibling, and Sophia Webster earned presentation sponsorships; and 1205, Huishan Zhang, Liam Fahy, Maarten van der Horst, and Palmer//Harding received exhibition sponsorships.
