London Fashion Week has a new home for SS 2016

This LFW is only my third, and I’m looking forward to finding out how the change of venue from the wonderful Somerset House will impact on the event (LFW has taken place there since 2009). The move to Soho’s Brewer Street means that LFW will be more central and closer to the main retail areas (It’s within a mile of Bond Street, Dover Street, Mount Street, Oxford Street and Regent Street).




I love the fact that the shows are going to be happening in an Art Deco car park! Two floors of the building will play host to the BFC Show Space and the Designer Showrooms, where over 100 designers exhibit next season’s covetable clothing, accessories and footwear.  It’s already a creative hub, showing numerous audio-visual installations and playing host to arts and culture events.  It was the venue for last year’s International Fashion Showcase, where over 100 designers from around the world had the opportunity to exhibit their work.
Prior to Somerset House, LFW took place in famous venues across the city such as the Natural History Museum, Battersea Park and the Duke of York Square. The move will help to increase support for the UK Fashion Industry, which employs nearly 800,000 people and is worth £26 billion to the economy. There’s also a programme of free talks open to the public.
The 62nd London Fashion Week takes place from 18 – 22 September 2015.
