New for this season, the British Fashion Council (BFC) which hosts London Fashion Week have added a series of Talks to the schedule for 25 – 28th February, including fashion designers Charlotte Dellal of Charlotte Olympia, Emilia Wickstead, Katharine Hamnett, Nicholas Kirkwood and Pam Hogg; celebrity stylist William Baker; singer-songwriter and record producer, Roisin Murphy; and founder of Premier Models, Carole White.
The Talks series will take place at the Saatchi Gallery over four days in February as part of the London Fashion Weekend event which is open to the public to allow consumers to experience the atmosphere of London Fashion Week and gain an insight into the fashion industry. It also gives designer brands the opportunity to meet and build direct relationships with new customers.
London Fashion Weekend also gives consumers exclusive access to catwalk shows; the new curated talks series; designer shopping; and trend presentations. Emilia Wickstead, Holly Fulton, Mary Katrantzou and Temperley London will present their SS16 collections at London Fashion Weekend (LFWend).
Caroline Rush CBE, Chief Executive of the BFC, said: “London Fashion Weekend is at the forefront of the British Fashion Council’s strategy for extending the citywide celebration of London Fashion Week and engaging the consumer in related activity. We are continuously developing the programme to include more talks and brands.”
