CATWALK APPLICATION FORM

LONDON FASHION WEEK A/W 2016

INFORMATION

London Fashion Week will take place from 19th-23rd February 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. Designers wishing to show in this way are more relevant to the presentation schedule.

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. The presentation slots are interspersed with the catwalk slots on the official schedule.

Please see the presentation and catwalk schedule here.

DIGITAL SCHEDULE

Our Digital Schedule stands as an exciting and innovative element of London Fashion Week each season. Within a 2-4 hour slot, our Digital Schedule strives to showcase and promote both established and emerging British talent by providing a curated program of digital activity throughout 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 Friday 13th November 2015.
