Burberry, Celine, Emilia Wickstead: whether on Regent Street or the streets of Soho, people in London walk in clothes from big designers. It’s no different at London Fashion Week. The giant event spans several days and is filled with stars, designers, influencers and models. There is no end of fashion here. But not this year, because of the ongoing Corona pandemic, London Fashion Week has to take a slightly different route. We’re taking you with us!
London Fashion Week – Digital & Online
This year’s London Fashion Week for the Autumn 2021 season will take place exclusively digitally from 19-23 February. Runways and fashion shows can be followed online, where you can access not only the collections shown, which are usually presented on the catwalk, but also additional multimedia content, including interviews with designers, podcasts and e-commerce.
Opening Fashion Week: “We Applaud Here”
Digital London Fashion Week officially opened with the performance piece “We Applaud Here” by creative poet and activist Kai-Isaiah Jamal. He is a poet, performer, model and spoken word trans-visibility activist who primarily uses Instagram as a platform.
