Fashion Utopias Exhibition Celebrates Emerging Designers at London Fashion Week


In a continued effort to support emerging designers, the British Fashion Council in collaboration with the British Council will present work by talent from 24 countries during London Fashion Week in an exhibition called ‘Fashion Utopias’ at the Somerset House. Now in its fifth year, the International Fashion Showcase (IFS) is a key part of the week and allows the public to experience contemporary fashion from a global perspective. Somerset House’s Utopia 2016: A Year of Imagination and Possibility will celebrate the 500th anniversary of the publication of Thomas More’s inspirational text, Utopia. The West Wing at Somerset House will be turned into a Utopian terrain where visions of the future will be shown.

The countries taking part in the showcase with their own gallery are Austria, Czech Republic, Egypt, Guatemala, Indonesia, Lebanon, Korea, Portugal, Philippines, Nigeria, Romania, Slovakia, Ukraine. A group installation includes designers from Argentina, Bahrain, Georgia, India, Kazakhstan, Netherlands, Nicaragua, Saudi Arabia, Senegal, South Africa, United Arab Emirates.
