London Fashion Week 2016 Goes Live

London Fashion Week has kicked off with more events and activities taking place all across London, for the fashion industry and public alike.

London Fashion Week has kicked off with more events and activities taking place all across London, for the fashion industry and public alike.

The UK’s fashion industry is one of the country’s greatest success stories, contributing £28billion to Britain’s economy and supporting nearly 900,000 jobs. This becomes even more evident during London Fashion Week; a global showcase which welcomes guests from over 58 countries, promotes designer brands to an international audience of trade and consumers, and generates orders of over £100million each season.

Last night Prime Minister Theresa May, and Chairman of the British Fashion Council, Dame Natalie Massenet welcomed representatives from across the British Fashion Industry to a reception at 10 Downing Street last night, highlighting their importance on the international business scene.
The Prime Minister welcomed apprentices from some of Britain’s leading fashion businesses including Charlotte Olympia, John Smedley, Private White VC and RA Smart Holdings, as well as British Fashion Council scholarship recipients and graduate trainees from the Royal College of Art and Central St Martins. She showed the Government’s commitment to support apprentices – in the fashion industry and beyond – in going as far as their talents can take them, whatever their backgrounds.

The first designers to present their new collection on the catwalk this morning, have been Catherine Teatum and Rob Jones, of London-based brand Teatum Jones, a label that has become recognised for its modern, polished and bold aesthetic. Their new collection has been presented at BFC Show Space; an explosion of delicate prints, lines, pastel colours and transparencies. Men and women have been equipped with backpacks, colourful raincoats and jackets, perfect for the British Spring and Summer.

Six other brands are also showing their new collections today: Eudon Choi, Bora Aksu, Ryan LO, DAKS, PPQ, with Ashley Williams closing the day’s shows. You can now watch the catwalks’ live stream at: For the first time this season Christopher Kane will also be live-streaming its show – visit to subscribe for first access.
