London Fashion Week post-Brexit

London Fashion Week post-Brexit

Brace yourself for the first post-Brexit London fashion week in London. The five-day season started yesterday, and climaxes on Tuesday evening with the Queen Elizabeth Award for British Design. A senior member of the Royal Family will do the honors this month. Though the biggest gala show in London will welcome back an old friend Tommy Hilfiger, who will unveil his fourth TommyxLewis collection in collaboration with the British Formula One multiple world champion Lewis Hamilton. Another new arrival is Austrian innovator Petar Petrov, who has moved his show from Paris to London, while France’s MM6, the diffusion collection by Maison Margiela will also be presenting again. Plus, the city will also be featuring its heavy hitter houses – starting with UK luxury’s one truly global behemoth, Burberry. Along with its younger and often avant-garde stars – JW Anderson, Simone Rocha and Victoria Beckham. The BFC has also introduced an experimental zone named Discovery LAB, which will feature music, workshops and the projection of Yohji Yamamoto 1983 – 2016. There will be a new Model Zone, a relaxing space where models can eat, drink and relax.
