London Fashion Week’s first digital-only platform launches Friday, 12 June. The British Fashion Council has carefully curated a three-day online fashion event combining both menswear and womenswear collections, to be offered in a variety of formats — including films, interviews, virtual galleries, and podcasts, as well as late-night DJ sets and even a 3D movie.
The BFC is taking this uniquely transformative time to make a deeper push into sustainable practices within the British fashion industry, encouraging homegrown designers and the wider industry to follow suit. LFW Digital June 2020 combines both menswear and womenswear in an effort to further the BFC’s Positive Fashion initiative. Streaming live from London Fashion Week’s official website, the online event lineup will include exclusive, intimate sessions with designers, creatives, retailers, and media to preview collections, discuss fashion’s sustainable future, and the current cultural climate.
We’re most excited for the live interview with designer Daniel Fletcher from Netflix’s Next In Fashion, and a panel discussion between the BFC and Google about fashion and sustainability, on Friday, 12 June. For Saturday, we’re keen to see a live talk with Black British designer Bianca Saunders, and the live evening event hosted by Charles Jeffrey LOVERBOY. The final day — Sunday, 14 June — is all about the Central Saint Martins MA fashion show, films by RIXO, Preen, Roksanda, the John Lewis Instagram catwalk challenge, and a late-night conscious fashion film by LN-CC.
Ahead, the official schedule for London Fashion Week Digital, June 2020.
