Lane Crawford has revealed the results of its Creative Call Out event with five fashion designers recognised for their creative portfolios and designs.

The competition saw a panel of judges selected from Lane Crawford's buying team connect with Australian designers to identify emerging talents and creatives to join the platform.

Over 240 applications were received from across the fashion, lifestyle and creative categories with 24 finalists selected for the opportunity to present to the panel.

This year's panelists included Double Rainbouu founder Mikey Nolan, 10 Pieces and Icebergs creative director Maurice Terzini and interior and design author Karen McCatney.

Fashion designers who were recognised as part of the 12 designers listed as runners up include Thomas Puttick, Rachel Burke, Jonathan Liang, Christian Kimber and Chris Ran Lin while furniture designer Tom Fereday was recognised as the overall winner of the event.

The event represents the eighth round of the program with previous events held in Los Angeles, Shanghai, Beijing, Chengdu and Hong Kong.

Those recognised will receive the opportunity to feature on Lane Crawford's digital and in-store channels, mentorship and investment into their future projects.

Lane Crawford chief brand officer Joanna Gunn said the opportunity to identify creative talents provided a great connection for both designers and the Lane Crawford brand.

“We were so excited to meet so many creative talents in Sydney. Since our launch of the Creative Call Out, we continue to be inspired by the individuals behind every design, hearing in person their own stories.”
