One of the most popular independent shows on the London Fashion Week calendar, Fashions Finest will showcase some of the hottest new and undiscovered designers.
Director Deborah St Louis said: “We all have had a tough year behind us. We used our downtime to officially change our business structure to reflect our activities and aims that have been successfully pursued since inception; to provide an independent established platform for under-represented graduates and emerging designers from the BAME and low-income communities but also those self-taught with a none-traditional route.
Businesses like mine and some of the creative industry including designers have taken a hit and faced various challenges. We are even more excited than ever to be showcasing and supporting the next wave of designers.
We will have safety precautions in place as per guidelines at the given time.”
