Fashions Finest is an established leading international platform for new and emerging designers taking place from Saturday, the 17th of September to Sunday, the 18th of September 2016 during London Fashion Week at the Cornwall and Crown Suite, Grand Connaught Rooms, 61-65 Great Queen Street, Holborn, London (nearest tube Covent Garden or Holborn). Doors Open at 1.00pm.

Fashions Finest, is considered to be “one of the most popular and sought after” independent showcases but is also hailed a viable, vibrant and exciting alternative to London Fashion Week’s on-schedule shows.

In February 2016, Fashions Finest expanded their reach to a global audience of over 6 Million via the digital support of The Branding Initiative who will continue their partnership for another season. This season will be livestreamed via Gininet.

“Fashions Finest retains a spirit, excitement and buzz that on-schedule shows are now lacking more and more, leaving me feeling slightly alienated” a visitor commented last season.

Twelve seasons in and in it's sixth year it returns with an array of catwalk shows and pop up and exhibition space featuring a carefully curated selection of international designers.

Amongst the roster of new designers Fashions Finest is pleased to announce the return of Miami / New York label Gia Viviana Dimincova, UK-based designers Hellavagirl, A.M.I.S. Designs and Tanaya Couture, US-based Metamorph Quirky Couture and Los Angeles-based celebrity jewellery designer Marianna Harutunian who creates accessories and avant-garde pieces for clientele like Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, Madonna, Paris Hilton, Disney, Nicki Minaj.

This season will also feature:

Clara In Wonderland (Italy)
Helen Mertl (Czech Republic)
Unbridaled Couture (UK)
Allan Vos Menswear (Netherlands)
Valdenize Soares (UK)
Biblos Glasgow (UK)
and many more to be announced.
