London is the capital of international fashion with its fashion week of co-ed fall / winter 2022-23 collections scheduled until Tuesday 22 February, under the usual guidance of the British Fashion Council (Bfc) and sponsored by Clearpay.
Many sacrifices, especially of the big names, few important names and many off-schedule shows, just like there are many emerging designers. On the program there are over 130 brands, 37 live fashion shows, 9 presentations, 5 appointments, 34 events and 66 digital initiatives. The format is therefore again a hybrid, between online and offline, but stylists and designers who bet on real life fashion shows are increasing at the trend level.
Among those present are Vivienne Westwood, scheduled on Monday with a digital show, and other leading names in British fashion including Erdem, Simone Rocha, Richard Quinn and Roksanda, As for the emerging creatives made in the UK there are Nensi Dojaka, winner of the LVMH Prize 2021, and then Asai, Bethany Williams, Conner Ives, Feng Chen Wang, Yuhan Wang and Nicholas Daley, Poster Girl (loved by VIPs and stars of the caliber of Dua Lipa, Kylie Jenner and Chiara Ferragni).
Among the absent to mention Burberry (who had already given up on fashion week last September, preferring to experiment with new formats for the presentation of their collections), Victoria Beckham, Mulberry, Emilia Wickstead, Christopher Kane, Jw Anderson and Alexander McQueen are the other big names who will not walk the catwalk of the event.
