London Fashion Week Application Form

LONDON FASHION WEEK SPRING/SUMMER 2017

INFORMATION

London Fashion Week will take place from 16th-20th September 2016.
                                        
CATWALK
The catwalk schedule is suitable for designers wishing to show their ready-to-wear collection on the ‘runway’ to an audience of 350+ with one specified time slot and no repeat shows/sittings.

PRESENTATION
More and more designers are choosing to show in an intimate style presentation or through a static installation.

Presentations must run over a minimum of 2 hours or up to a full day so as not to clash directly with a catwalk show. Presentation slots are interspersed with the catwalk slots on the official schedule.

Please see the presentation and catwalk schedule here.

DIGITAL SCHEDULE

The Digital Schedule stands as an exciting and innovative element of London Fashion Week each season. Within a 2-4 hour slot, the Digital Schedule strives to showcase and promote both established and emerging British talent by providing a curated program of digital activity throughout London Fashion Week.

Designers are invited to present their seasonal collection through the medium of film, with a digital element being compulsory for a listing on the Digital Schedule. 

Please see the digital schedule here.

 

The closing date for applications is Monday 25th April 2016.
