London Fashion Week dates revealed, three events planned for 2022
The British Fashion Council (BFC) has announced the dates for London Fashion Week 2022 and reconfirmed that the January menswear edition won’t be happening.
LFW, which continues to be sponsored by Clearpay will happen on February 18-22 and September 16-20 (both Friday to Tuesday), with what would normally have been the revived men’s event planned to run from June 11-13 (Saturday to Monday). However, this year, all three LFWs will combine both women’s and menswear.
The BFC said the January edition has been cancelled “due to uncertainties arising from Covid-19” and given the move to extra ‘Plan B’ Covid restrictions just announced for England, that earlier decision seems to make good sense.
During the height of the pandemic in 2020, LFW went digital but it moved to a hybrid digital-physical schedule this September. The February event is also expected to be a hybrid one. It will continue to incorporate catwalk shows, presentations, appointments, and events throughout London, as well as digital content on the fashion week’s website.
This digital platform is a year-round one and is constantly updated for retailers, media and consumers to view and buy collections.
