David Walter to judge fashionistas across the North

Photolink’s CEO and founder David Walter is set to appear on a star-spangled panel alongside fashion designer Wayne Hemingway, Grazia’s fashion news and features editor Kay Barron, and John Lewis’ head of womenswear Jo Hooper, for The Fashion Network’s ‘North by North West: 10 of the Best Awards’.

The Fashion Network, a business networking service based out of Manchester and London that devises and develops business opportunities for the fashion and creative industries across the UK, is hunting for 10 of the best fashion-related companies in the North of England as we speak.

And they’ve commandeered 10 of the best industry names and faces to judge them across a selection of categories including best emerging brand, best independent retailer and best vintage store.

The awards are open to any company or sole trader based in the North West, North East, Yorkshire and Humberside. You can either submit your own company or nominate someone who you think deserves recognition. But you’ll have to hurry deciding who or what you’re going to put up for the awards – the deadline for entries is Sunday 31 July!

Anyway, we’re chuffed to be involved with the awards via David and raise a glass to the Fashion Network for yet again championing talent from a wide variety of companies and individuals in the North – a bunch we are understandably keen to see prosper.
