To celebrate the young people achieving big things and propelling the industry forward, each January the Drapers Next Generation project profiles 30 rising stars working across the breadth of the fashion industry. This year’s line-up includes fast fashion entrepreneurs, London Fashion Week designers, shop floor stars and tech talent. All, despite their long lists of achievements and accolades, are aged 30 or under at the time of publication. They have been selected in recognition of what they have already contributed to the industry and their potential to make their mark in the future.

Drapers Next Generation also includes exclusive features for people in the early stages in their fashion careers – which will be relevant to anyone working in the fast-moving industry today. Covering everything from starting up your own fashion business, to flexible working, routes into the industry and retail roles of the future, as well as Jack Wills founder and CEO Peter Williams’ career advice, Drapers Next Generation brings you all you need to be the best you can be in your role.
