By ELLE team  January 13th, 2017

Each year we, at ELLE HQ, begin the process of culling the new crop of fashion designers to find the ones that you’ll be raising a toast to soon. In keeping with tradition, the class of ELLE Graduates 2016 has some stellar names to boast of: Antar-Agni, Misho, Doodlage, Kaleekal, P.E.L.L.A., Silvense and VineetRahul. One out of these hottest new names in fashion will proceed on to showcase at the Who’s Next trade show in Paris.

Pick one out of a sea of brilliance is no easy task; which is why we called in the big guns. The ELLE Graduates 2017 show will be judged by our ever-so-stylish January cover girl, Vaani Kapoor on January 17. Seated next to her at the judges panel will be designers Tarun Tahiliani, Amit Aggarwal, Anita Dongre and Tina Tahiliani. ELLE’s Aishwarya Subramanyam, Raj Anand (of Who’s Next) Sunil Sethi and Jeannine De Chaud (President – Buying & Sourcing of Max Fashion) will be joining them at the panel too.
