The British Fashion Council (BFC) today announces the dates for London Fashion Week 2022 presented by Clearpay (LFW). These are:
Friday 18th to Tuesday 22nd February 2022
Saturday 11th to Monday 13th June 2022
Friday 16th to Tuesday 20th September 2022
Due to uncertainties arising from COVID-19, the January edition of London Fashion Week will not be held. All three events, February, June and September will continue to merge womenswear and menswear collections.
Following the successful format introduced in September 2021, the hybrid digital-physical schedule will continue to incorporate catwalk shows, presentations, appointments, and events throughout London, as well as digital content available at londonfashionweek.co.uk.
The LFW digital platform is a year-round platform and is constantly updated for retailers, media and consumers to view and buy collections. The platform will continue to serve as the Official Digital Hub and will be freely accessible to everyone, industry professionals and global fashion consumers alike, enabling collaboration and bringing together fashion, culture, and technology.
The decision to move the traditional menswear showcase from January to February was first made at the end of last year in light of the environment surrounding Covid-19 at the time, challenges around the movement of goods, samples and people in the single market and customs union post-Brexit, and following surveys and roundtables with designers, as well as conversations with sales showrooms regarding selling periods. The BFC is committed to supporting British menswear designer businesses and is confident that the infrastructure introduced over the last year amply facilitates the launch of their collections and promotes their sales campaigns.
The generosity and commitment of our partners, suppliers and supporters are more vital than ever. Please help us by acknowledging their support for LFW February 2022 alongside our Principal Partner: Clearpay, Official Partners Evening Standard, IBM, JD.COM, INC, JOOR, The Londoner, Royal Salute and TONI&GUY and Official Suppliers DHL, Fora and Getty Images. – THE BFC
