The Fash­ion Awards in Lon­don aren’t only for in­dus­try vet­er­ans: This year, a cat­e­gory will de­but called New Wave: Cre­atives, which will high­light 100 young, in­ter­na­tional tal­ents. On Thurs­day at an event in New York, the Bri­tish Fash­ion Coun­cil un­veiled 20 of the 100 names.

The 20 names in­clude U.S. tal­ents Kaia Ger­ber, Hari Nef, Lil Miquela, Luka Sab­bat, Bri­anna Capozzi and Ethan James Green.

Last month, the first crop of 20 names was re­vealed in Shang­hai. Chi­nese trail­blaz­ers on that list in­clude in­flu­encer Mr. Bags and Anny Fan, pho­tog­ra­phers Les­lie Zhang and Ziqian Wang and mod­els Jing Wen and Ting Chen.

Ahead of The Fash­ion Awards, which will take place on Dec. 10 at Royal Al­bert Hall in Lon­don, the re­main­ing 60 names in the New Wave: Cre­atives cat­e­gory will be un­veiled. The awards are held in part­ner­ship with Swarovski and will be hosted by Jack White­hall and co­hosted by Alek Wek. — FIONA MA
