FANNIE SCHIAVONI is a London based womenswear label established in 2009.
Born in Sweden, Fannie Åkerblom moved to London at the age of 18 to study tailoring at London College of Fashion, where she later progressed to the BA (Hons) Fashion Design Womenswear course.

She continued to receive the award for three consecutive seasons.
