British Designers Soar To Milan with London Show Room Collab

The British Fashion Council has announced that London Show Rooms will be collaborating with White Milano, from Thursday 23rd to Sunday 26th September in Milan. White Milano is the Tradeshow for international womenswear, at the core of the Milan Fashion Week. This collaboration allows for the London fashion community to present themselves in the heart of Italian style, Milan Fashion Week. This opportunity ensures support for emerging designers with online showrooms and events obscuring the fashion calendar last year.

Caroline Rush, Chief Executive of the British Fashion Council explained during her statement: “The British Fashion Council is committed to strengthening British fashion in the global economy…British fashion talents are known for their creativity, innovation and responsible business and London produces some of the most exciting designers in the world.”
