AUSSIE WINNER: Michael Lo Sordo was named the winner of the 2014 BT Emerging Fashion Designer Award at the annual BT Runway for Success event in Sydney Wednesday night. Lo Sordo will receive $10,000 from BT Financial Group and will have access to mentoring and a financial planner for his business. Virgin Australia has also provided two round-trip business flights to New York for Lo Sordo to further his fashion ambitions. The Sydney native launched his own designer collection in 2008, which is known for its structured take on romantic minimalism.


Lo Sordo showed his looks alongside finalists By Johnny and Strateas Carlucci. The Emerging Fashion Designer collections were followed by runway shows from some of Australia’s best-known fashion labels — Bec & Bridge, Bianca Spender, Camilla and Marc, Carl Kapp, Carla Zampatti, Lee Mathews, Manning Cartell, Oroton and Willow.
