This year’s FAME Team Finals saw finalists gather in a mood of high anticipation as an electrifying atmosphere filled the air. It proved to be an evening of creativity, excitement and competition.
The Fellowship FAME Team Finals, hosted at Loft Studios, welcomed the eight finalists a final opportunity to impress the judges during the last judging round, in anticipation of the 2024 team announcement at the Fellowship Luncheon and Awards on December 4th.
Fellowship Chancellor Karoliina Saunders gave a warm welcome to the audience, as well as an overview of the schedule of events. The first part of the night saw live presentations and hair up styling, with judges Adam Reed, Alasdair Jubbs, Ellie Bond, Errol Douglas MBE, Jacqui McIntosh, Kathryn Dartnell, Lisa Farrall, Robert Masciave, and Sam Burnett closely watching over the finalists at work.
Fnalists Stephen Campbell, Kristian Szalay, Elle Foreman, and James Farrar took the stage, followed by Ilaria Bellemo, Phoebe Carrarro, Morgan Graham, and Harry Andreou in the second segment. Each participant took on the 20-minute challenge, creating a unique look that showcased their individual identity and skills within their niche. During this creative live section, the judges engaged with the artists, examining their work, skill, and techniques. The showcased looks ranged from 1920s-inspired styles to striking editorial and avant-garde creations. Each of the eight finalists presented their final models, providing an opportunity for each of them to express their creativity and push the boundaries of their own skillset.
As the evening drew to a close, the Fellowship Team, President Robert Eaton, Vice President Ashleigh Hodges, and Chancellor Karoliina Saunders expressed their gratitude to everyone involved while confirming that the unveiling of the 2024 team would take place at the Fellowship Luncheon and Awards on December 4, 2023.
