BFC releases LFW September line-up, to launch ‘City-Wide Celebration' event
The British Fashion Council (BFC) has released a provisional line-up for London Fashion Week (17-21 September) with headliners including Victoria Beckham, Erdem, and JW Anderson among the 100-plus confirmed designers. More names will be added over the next few weeks, the BFC said.
Presented as a physical-digital hybrid, a provisional schedule will be released in mid-July with specific information regarding the format of each showcase (physical, digital or both). This will incorporate catwalk shows, presentations, appointments, events, digital content and activations throughout London.
With its principal partner Clearpay, LFW will also “celebrate the reopening of London” by relaunching a ‘City-Wide Celebration' programme across the capital. This will make the “best of British fashion accessible to consumers, supporting retail to get back on its feet and opening London Fashion Week to new audiences and communities”.
The open-to-all “dynamic” schedule will include events and activations in partnership with key retailers, cultural institutions, and businesses. A full schedule of activities and how to get involved will be announced later in the summer, BFC added.
The LFW line-up so far comprises some key attractions such as the names mentioned above and Bianca Saunders, Bora Aksu, Charles Jeffery Loverboy, Emilia Wickstead, Fashion East, Halpern, Molly Goddard, Nicholas Daley, Paul & Joe, Paul Costello, Preen by Thornton Bregazzi, Rejina Pyo, Richard Malone, Richard Quinn, Rixo, Roksanda, Roland Mouret, Self-Portrait, Simone Rocha, Temperley London, and Tiger of Sweden.
