Anyone who’s anyone knows that one of the two most important events in the fashion calender starts today – Spring/Summer’s London Fashion Week. And thus, the creme de la creme of the fashion industry are jetting in from all over the world to our buzzing capital in order to bear witness to both legendary and up-and-coming fashion designers.
And for those who aren’t in the elite glitterati of the fashion industry, there are a whole host of exciting events and exhibitions to coincide with the upcoming catwalk frenzies. From fashion themed nights to special events at some of London’s most fashionable of shops, there’s certainly no need to miss out on all the action. And here at The Amazing Blog, one of our personal favourites is the Fashion Space Gallery at London College of Fashion, which opened on the eve of London Fashion Week. Offering the perfect opportunity for fashion fans alike, The Fashion Space Gallery is showcasing some of the UK’s most exciting emerging designers.
With the designs of a number of raw talents, including Derek Lawlor, Fyodor Golan, Felicity Brown and Una Burke, The Fashion Space Gallery gives visitors an exclusive insight into the future of fashion. And what binds this group together is their imperative attention to detail, craftsmanship and execution that define fashionable dress at its highest level, yet demonstrates radically innovative approaches to materials and construction.
Each designer has an impeccable CV, and their unique work makes for a truly impressive exhibition. Design duo and celebrity favourite Fyodor Golan, have been described by Roland Mouret as being “unique and stubborn’ and their unique couture-level creations won them this year’s prestigious Fashion Fringe award. Meanwhile, knitwear specialist Derek Lawlor, who has been credited by Vogue’s Sarah Mower as producing ‘fabulous knitwear’ has built up a strong following since graduating in 2009 from Central Saint Martins.
And so, whether you’re a fashion fanatic or simply want a taster of what’s to come in the world of fashion, shimmy on down to the Fashion Space Gallery, located in the heart of the West End at the London College of Fashion flagship site, running until the 7th April.
