It’s finally here: we can now announce our two amazing winners for the Face of London Runway 2022!
It’s been such an exciting journey, starting with more than 800 applicants who came to us from all around the world. They were as far apart as Canada, Australia, the USA, and Nigeria, with plenty of homegrown talent from here in the UK too. We’ve been through Zoom rounds, video challenges, and a special shooting day at Maad in Wood Green that allowed us to put all of the contestants through their paces – and you can read all about that in previous issues as well as on our website.
Now, though, we’ve come through the final round. Your voting scores on social media were combined with the scores our judges have been accumulating throughout every round, after carefully observing each of the participants and looking at their behaviour, their potential, and their video and image results.
When you were called on to vote, vote you did! We’ve had hundreds of likes flooding in on our Instagram page, where each of the contestants’ images were shared for official voting, as well as on Facebook. Meanwhile, our head judges – Chief Editor Rhiannon D’Averc and model coach Maxine Griffiths – had a lot to discuss, putting their heads together to provide the final results.
And now, we’re pleased to say we can announce our winners and runners-up for 2022!
WOMENSWEAR WINNER: Pippa Winn
Runners-up: Rhiannon Barber and Rosanna Wild
MENSWEAR WINNER: Flinn Andreae
Runners-up: Pemmy Opeaye and Sainey Kanteh
You’ll be able to catch both our menswear and womenswear victors on their own individual issue covers over the coming months, and we’ll be providing support and training to all six winners and runners-up over the course of the next year. Look out for them on our podcast, London Runway Style, as well as hopefully a catwalk or three during coming seasons…
And, one last note: if you’re feeling left out and thinking you might have been able to be a winner yourself, don’t fret! Watch out next spring or early summer for our 2023 Face of London Runway contest. You can ensure you won’t miss out by signing up to our mailing list at londonrunway.co.uk
