Raf Simons, Burberry, JW Anderson to Show During London Fashion Week
Raf Simons will be making its London runway debut this September during the upcoming London Fashion Week, the British Fashion Council revealed Monday with its provisional schedule.
Some 110 brands will be presenting their spring 2023 collections during the five-day event from September 16 to 20.
Burberry, now under new chief executive officer Jonathan Akeroyd, will return with a physical show format after showing digitally for two years due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Other brands set to return include JW Anderson, Emilia Wickstead, Erdem, Huishan Zhang, Molly Goddard, Rejina Pyo, Roskanda, Halpern, and Simone Rocha, LVMH Prize winners Nensi Dojaka and S.S. Daley, as well as brands including Richard Malone, Supriya Lele, Knwls, Chopova Lowena, Susan Fang, Pronounce, David Koma, 16Arlington, Daniel Fletcher, and Edward Crutchley.
The BFC Newgen show space will continue to be at The Old Selfridges Hotel to provide affordable show space for emerging talents including Asai, Chet Lo, Eftychia, Paolo Carzana, Ancuta Sarca, Stefan Cooke, Yuhan Wang, Sinéad O’Dwyer, Leo Carlton, Di Petsa, Faben, Helen Kirkum, Masha Popova, and Harri.
This season, big brands are showing at the beginning of LFW, which is set to drive the international fashion crowd to the city earlier than before. In previous seasons, international buyers and press usually would skip the first and last day of LFW to save budget.
Raf Simons’ slot is 8 p.m. on the first day of LFW on September 16, while Burberry and JW Anderson are both showing on Saturday night on 6 p.m. and 8 p.m., respectively.
The full schedule will be released in mid-August and include specific information regarding the format of each activation.
