Alec Dudson of Canal180 plugs Jacob Kane as newcomer creative of the year for 2018.

"Jacob Kane is a menswear designer who graduated from Manchester Fashion Institute last summer. He won a scholarship award from the British Fashion Council for his final year collection and appeared on our radar shortly afterwards.

Hailing from Preston, Jacob spent two seasons interning with Christopher Shannon and was inspired to launch his own label off the back of that. His first collection is heavily based on utility, wearability and ‘realness’ and recently saw him crowned as The Best Under the Radar Brand of 2017 by Highsnobiety. We’re really looking forward to his new collection and are predicting more well deserved recognition in 2018." - Alec Dudson
