The De Vere Grand Connaught Rooms have been home to Fashions Finest Spring Summer, Autumn Winter London Fashion Week for the past six years.
The change is being brought in, in time with the New Year. It coincides with the return of the annual Britain’s Top Designer Award, now in its 7th season, with head judge Bernard Connolly, Lola Royle, Nicky Johnston and its newest addition Joe Alvarez. Laura Naylor returns as presenter for the 4th year running.
Deborah St Louis the director said, “we are really excited about the move. We have enjoyed our time in at the Grand Connaught Rooms but the opportunity to host our event exclusively during London Fashion Week in this exciting new space has now come up. We feel it is time to shake things up little and bring in some much-needed changes. We are looking forward to working with the team at Congress Centre”.
