The traditional London edition in January, dedicated to men’s collections, has been canceled. Here in February menswear and womenswear fall / winter 2022-23 will be staged in co-ed and phygital formats, that is with both face-to-face and digital events. Among the designers who ensured the show in attendance there are Edward Crutchley, Matty Bovan, Molly Goddard, Richard Quinn, Simone Rocha, Roksanda and Erdem. And then again the interesting and emerging novelty represented by Nensi Dojaka, who won Lvmh Prize 2021, the menswear of Saul Nash and S.S. Daley and Conner Ives womenswear. As an initial event, there will be the presentation of the men’s line signed by Nicholas Daley. Other presentations will feature Rixo, Scott Henshall, Feng Chen Wang and Bethany Williams, Edeline Lee, Toga and Temperley London. The independent fashion brand 16Arlington will host a fashion show with an unreleased collection, in honor of the co-founder Federica Cavenati, who passed away last November. Vivienne Westwood is expected to be among the big names. Absent, however, were, among others, Victoria Beckham, Jw Anderson, Emilia Wickstead, Christopher Kane and Burberry, the historic anglosaxon brand that did not participate in the event last September.


Digital platforms

London Fashion week will also be sponsored this year by Clearpay and, the organizers assure, will take place in full compliance with all international safety regulations thanks to the continuous connection with the indications of the British government. To facilitate the conduct of the event, the digital platforms will remain active, allowing those who will not be able to be present to see the collections and get in touch with companies and showrooms to place orders.
