According to the editor-in-chief of Vogue, Alexandra Shulman, you don’t get the established talent in fashion without helping the emerging talent. And the British Fashion Council agrees with her which is why this autumn’s London Fashion Week has a huge focus on young, emerging talent.
The UK’s young designers will be out in full force and they’re more creative and vibrant than ever – splashing colour and imagination across the stages and injecting our lives with inspiration and, quite frankly, hope that high fashion is here to stay.
London Fashion Week will bring over 150 womenswear designers and their SS16 collections to the Designer Showrooms, Brewer Street Car Park from Friday 18-Tuesday 22 September 2015. But it will also showcase the very best of the bright young things.
Highlights will include NEWGEN SS16 which has been sponsored by every young fashionista’s Mecca, TOPSHOP. The High street fashion giant is showcasing the British Fashion Council’s emerging talent initiative through their pop-up showroom within which up-and-coming ones to watch Ashley Williams, Claire Barrow, Danielle Romeril, Faustine Steinmetz, Marta Jakubowski, Molly Goddard, Sadie Williams and Ryan Lo will each present their collections to buyers and press.
