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.
London Fashion Week ended Tuesday night after scores of virtual shows, presentations and debates, with a collection by Simone Rocha, and Priya Ahluwalia winning the latest Queen Elizabeth II Award for British Fashion.
The BFC has unveiled buy-now-pay-later giant Clearpay as its new Principal Partner for London Fashion Week in a two-year deal that also sees it underwriting all of the BFC talent support initiatives for 2021/22.
YNAP's Outnet brand has launched an exclusive capsule with British designer label Erdem. It comprises 25 styles in signature prints from his previous collections, reimagined in new silhouettes for the exclusive.
Without question, this has been the strangest season in fashion in 50 years, where designers have been busy asking themselves what the point of their profession is. What the French call "une remise en question."
“Limitations can be liberating. Working remotely for this collection we reacted spontaneously. We were instinctive,” opined Victoria Beckham, perched on a massive patchwork quilt sofa inside a London art gallery.
The resurgence of Covid-19 in Europe is increasing the uncertainty surrounding September fashion events. Trade show and fashion week organisers are trying to cope, amidst postponements, cancellations and online options.
Just when one thought that you’d expire from the lack of any new fashion in London Fashion Week’s debut digital season, along came Tiscar Espadas, Xander Zhou and Ka Wa Key with some genuinely new clothes.
