The History Of London Fashion Week


In 1983 the British Fashion Council was founded and the first edition of London Fashion Week took place in February 1984, as well as the first ever British Fashion Awards where Katharine Hamnett picked up designer of the Year. Unfortunately, Katharine’s political slogans and ethical wares haven’t been seen on the catwalks of London Fashion Week since 2003 but many of the designers who scooped the designer of the year award in the following years always show their collection on he ramp of London Fashion Week.

The event was born in 1984 in a West London on car park, with vibrant catwalk shows, exhibitions combining the strong industry focus that it has maintained to this day. It saw the debut of fashion icons such as Betty Jackson, Ghost, David Fielden and the unforgettable John Galliano. The event continued to prosper until the nineties, when the recession meant that only a handful of designers were chosen to show off their collections in a few rooms at the Ritz, in 1992.

But in 1993, LFW regained its trademark vigour when Naomi Campbell strutted topless down the catwalk for the Philip Treacy collection. Later on in the decade student designer Stella McCartney hit success with her entire collection selling out after the 1995 Spring/Summer show.

Now till the London Fashion Week 2014, fashion designers have been showcasing their seasonal collection for men and women. The London Fashion Week is now considered to be as the most demanding and popular fashion show in big four fashion weeks. Well, the next London Fashion Week will be held soon in year 2015 to represents the new seasonal collection for everyone. Stay tuned with us for more and more updates about Long Fashion show 2015.
