The London Fashion Week returns this June from Saturday 11th June till Monday 13th June, with young upcoming labels on the list. The event will be held digitally and in-person again. Since the inception of the June event, the showcase has “evolved to support a future of fashion that eliminates gender constructs”.
Twenty physical and 14 digital activations will showcase their work.
LFW will kick off on Saturday with Carlota Barrera, a Spanish designer based in London. Her elegant menswear, seen from the female gaze, features contemporary designs that create emotions and question gender identity.
They are followed by AGR, founded by London designer Alicia Robinson: a knitwear brand is known for its bold colours inspired by London’s diverse culture, with the main focus on up-cycling and sustainability.
Sunday’s highlight is Ahluwalia, fashion pieces inspired by family trips taken to Nigeria and India, music and art, and London roots.
Other collection launches include Agnė Kuzmickaitė, QASIMI, Tiger of Sweden, HENSHALL, University of Westminster BA, etc.
DiscoveryLAB returns this year to the digital schedule, too, in collaboration with DAZED to give viewers the chance to connect with emerging brands. These collaborations explore the intersection of fashion, music, art, photography, and performance. Participants are ABAGA VELLI, Bad Habits London, Brandon Choi, KINGWEN, Lea Nyland Studio, Mark Chapman, Noirgaze, PERTE D’EGO, SansPeng, seventyfive and TREDDENICK.
