LFW's men's event won't happen in January, labels to join women's event again
The fashion events calendar is struggling to get back to some sort of normality as UK lockdowns end while the pandemic rumbles on, and the menswear edition of London Fashion Week is being affected by this.
The event was last held physically in January 2020 and after its no-show this year, won’t happen in January 2022 either.
The British Fashion Council told Fashionnetwork.com that the men’s collections will be shown alongside the women’s ones in February.
The next edition of London Fashion Week runs from February 18-22 and will once again show both women’s and men’s collection in the hybrid physical-digital format that has now become the norm for so many fashion events.
The BFC will unveil the event’s schedule in early January and will be sharing all dates for 2022’s LFW editions next week.
Only this week, the organiser of Scoop and Pure London conformed that the two shows will be happening in a combined format again for their next editions. And globally, fashion weeks and trade shows are still not back to their full pre-pandemic strength.
This has led some labels to take the decision to show to their own timetable off-schedule, while others have switched to alternative fashion weeks to unveil their collections.
