LONDON, ENGLAND, UNITED KINGDOM (FEBRUARY 17, 2017) (REUTERS) – After New York, fashionistas gather for London Fashion Week (LFW) where a mix of established names, highstreet labels and emerging designers will present their latest creations during five days of runway shows and presentations.
While smaller than fellow fashion capitals New York, Milan and Paris, London will host labels like Burberry, Mulberry, Versace’s Versus line and Temperley London. The city is known for its fashion schools and new creative talent.
More than 50 catwalk shows and 30 presentations will be held during LFW, which takes place with the uncertainty of Brexit looming over the industry.
While LFW draws fashionistas from around the world, it also attracted two small demonstrations outside the main venue. A handful of women held banners reading “Fight for real age models at LFW”, while separately three women in bikinis and crocodile masks held banners in the form of handbags with slogans such as “Animals die for exotic skins”.
