London Fashion Week dates confirmed

default 

Breathe a sigh of relief, British fashionistas! After the controversy surrounding London Fashion Week dates last show season, the schedule for February 2009 has finally been confirmed. The A/W '09 shows will run from Friday 20 to Tuesday 24 February, meaning there will only be a one day overlap with New York after fears London Fashion Week would be cut down to only three or four days due to complaints from New York designers. Pressure to produce their collections in time (following the month long holiday in August taken by many of the companies incvolved) meant the enitre show schedule for each of the four cities was to be pushed back but following refusual from Milan, London was going to be the city to suffer. Also in are the  S/S '10 show dates that  will take place from 18-22 September. But let's not get ahead of ourselves. We're looking forward to February first, which marks the 25th anniversary of LFW. See you there!
