Consumer fashion event London Fashion Weekend, which runs biannually the weekend after London Fashion Week, is moving to the Saatchi Gallery on London’s King Road for its 30th edition on September 24-27.
The event, which is run by the British Fashion Council and billed as a ‘fashion festival’, was previously held at Somerset House, and its move follows the decision by the BFC to relocate London Fashion Week from Somerset House in September to Brewer Street car park in Soho for the SS16 shows.
Caroline Rush, chief executive British Fashion Council said: “This summer we want to drive support for a city wide celebration of our fantastic British fashion industry. In September London’s creativity will be on the catwalk. From shows at London Fashion Week in Soho to shows at London Fashion Weekend in Chelsea, we are spreading our footprint across the city.”
The weekend will feature catwalk shows, talks, pop-up events, as well as designer shopping at exclusive prices. Tickets will be available from May 12.
