Nicomede Talavera chosen for Fashion Enterprise sponsorship
London-born and based menswear designer Nicomede Talavera, who founded his label in 2013 after studying at Central Saint Martin under Louise Wilson, has been named the latest addition to Fashion Enterprise's New Fashion Venture programme.
Talavera was previously on the fashion business incubator's six month New Fashion Pioneer programme. He will now be based in Fashion Enterprise's studios on Mare Street, Hackney for two years.
Talavera commented: “I am extremely grateful for the belief and support the CFE have shown in my label and work, via the Pioneer Programme and now the Venture Programme. My business has developed rapidly in the last three seasons and is at a stage where to progress and be sustainable, the expertise and support of the CFE and their team will be invaluable. I am really looking forward to the next two years.”
CFE Director Wendy Malem commented: “Nicomede Talavera inspires us at Centre for Fashion Enterprise, not only due to his fresh directional talent, but also by his curiosity about business. A talented designer who is excited by the fusion between business and design must surely succeed. The team are looking to add value to that talent.”
Other designers in the Venture programme include Marques'Almeida, Phoebe English and Craig Green.
