Secret Emporium Festival Designer Awards for the summer season 2012.......

After a crazy up and down festival summer of apocalyptic rain and blazing sunshine, the Secret Emporium has seen it's best season yet with designers blowing all expectations of talent, imagination, variety and blinding colour! 

To show our appreciation and admiration for such a high calibre of designers this year we are announcing our first roll call of awards. It has been incredibly hard to decide which designer to offer prizes to seeing as so many of you really really blew our socks off, ultimately we'd just like to keep giving you all awards and hope to give many more of you the chance in the future.

For now we have had to settle on these exceptional and outstanding independent labels to offer our particular recognition of talent.........
