Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

The British Fashion Council and Topshop's latest round of F/W 2013 NewGen sponsorships include returning recipients J.W. Anderson and Simone Rocha, who will have their runway shows funded again, and Christopher Raeburn, J.JS Lee, Marques'Almeida, Nasir Mazhar, Sophia Webster, Sister by Sibling, and Lucas Nascimento, who each get funds for stage presentations.

Newbies to the ten-year-old showcase include tailoring wunderkind Paula Gerbase and footwear designer Liam Fahy, who will both stage exhibitions, alongside more returning labels Maarten van der Horst, 1205, Palmer//Harding and Huishan Zhang. Now all we have to do is try not to go permanently cross-eyed keeping an eye on all these young talents.
