Raf Simons, Burberry and JW Anderson are all set to show in September. The countdown to the spring/summer 2023 collections at London Fashion Week has begun. Additionally, the British Fashion Council has revealed a program jam-packed with the biggest names to appear since it was shaken by the pandemic in 2020.
In an effort to draw an A-list international crowd during the dates of 16–20 September, the lineup will include hot new additions. Designer Raf Simons, who is co-creative director at Prada and previously held coveted positions as creative director at Christian Dior and chief creative officer of Calvin Klein, will present the newest collection from his own line on the Friday night schedule. It will be the brand's first time showing in London, as it usually show in Paris. This has caused a lot of excitement among its fashion crowd, where he has a strong fan base.
The Saturday schedule for the show will end with two blockbuster shows. Burberry, which has historically been a LFW highlight will proceed, followed by JW Anderson, Northern Irish designer Johnathan Anderson’s namesake label. The majority of his recent collections have been shown as lookbooks, while his most recent catwalk for Resort 2023 was held in Milan.
The five-day affair wll also see a stronghold of familiar London faces showing their SS23 collections, including Richard Quinn, Molly Goddard, Erdem and Simone Rocha. It is also worthy of note that; Cult labels are getting involved too. Chopova Lowena, the design duo known for their upcycled kilts, and Di Petsa, who makes wet-look frocks which are the It-dresses for celebrity pregnancy reveal pictures (including Nicki Minaj and Gigi Hadid’s), will both be holding events on the Saturday.
This year's London Fashion Week is set to be exciting and worth the wait since it's recovery from the pandemic.
