The British Fashion Council celebrates the designers who will showcase their latest collections in the Designer Showrooms at Brewer Street Car Park from 16th – 20th September. This season’s showrooms include accessories, bags, footwear, jewellery, multi-label showrooms and ready-to-wear. 

This season over 150 designers will showcase new collections in the Designer Showroom; the strong diversity in backgrounds and homes of this season’s line-up illustrates more than ever that London is truly open for business on the global market. The showroom space, designed by David Collins Studio, is at the heart of London Fashion Week (LFW) and will be host to a number of exciting events this season: 

Designer Showrooms
Friday will see the official launch of London Fashion Week September 2016 at the Designer Showrooms Private View, a chance to preview the designers in the Designer Showrooms before everything kicks off.

Rock Vault
On Monday Stephen Jones OBE and Stephen Webster MBE will present the new line up of the BFC’s Headonism and Rock Vault and initiatives. Laura Apsit Livens and The Season Hats join the existing Headonism milliners while DAOU and Frances Wadsworth Jones join the fine jewellers of Rock Vault, and  Headonism will showcase collections from Harvy Santos, Laura Apsit Livens, Sophie Beale Millinery and The Season Hats in a space co-curated by Stephen Jones OBE. 
Rock Vault will present Completedworks, DAOU, Frances Wadsworth Jones, Lily Kamper, Rachel Boston and Shimell and Madden in a space co-curated by Stephen Webster MBE. 

BFC Ambassador for Emerging Talent Sarah Mower MBE is hosting a celebration of this season’s NEWGEN sponsored by Topshop designers on Tuesday at 3pm. Newcomer Paula Knorr joins Ashley Williams, Faustine Steinmetz, Marta Jakubowski, Molly Goddard, Ryan LO and Sadie Williams for 2016/2017. The designers will have an installation in the showrooms where guests can view their collections up-close once they have debuted, alongside a pop-up showroom where press and buyers can make appointments. This season each of the NEWGEN designers have created sew-on patches in order to raise funds for Topshop’s charity Lady Garden, and master embroiderers Hand & Lock will be on hand to customise your clothing. 

Future British 
Boden’s Future British initiative in partnership with the BFC will also be showcasing the work of its designers this season, wish a dedicated space showing the collections of Blake LDN, Bruta, Caitlin Charles-Jones, Camilla Elphick, and Le Kilt. On Friday they will celebrate these designers with a drinks reception.
