London Fashion Week will be back in September for the Spring/Summer shows, running from September 16 to 20. More than 100 designers have been confirmed on the provisional hybrid digital-physical schedule, released by the British Fashion Council.

The upcoming instalment marks Burberry‘s return to the LFW calendar, after a digital-only hiatus, and Raf Simons, who has previously shown his collections in Paris and New York, will make his LFW debut too.

As for the BFC NewGen show space, it will return to The Old Selfridges Hotel – the same location that hosted the biggest real-life shows at last year’s spring offering. Back then, more than half of collections were presented digitally due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.

In addition to physical shows being more prevalent this time around, the return of the BFC’s city-wide celebration – a curated programme of events focused on ‘inclusivity and consciousness’ – is just one of the reasons LFW will be extra special this year (there’s more on this below).
