London Fashion Week 2009 will take place on February 21st to February 24th. London Fashion Week is considered one of the big four fashion weeks held around the world, with the other three taking place in Milan, New York, and Paris. The London Fashion Week is a biannual trade show, where designers unveil their seasonal collections to the press, and buyers visit to decide what they will purchase for stores around the globe. London Fashion Week isn’t considered as spectacular as the New York Fashion Week, but allows Britain to really show its flair for two weeks out of the year.
This London Fashion Week will be held in the Natural History Museum, and will showcase the Autumn/Winter Collections of the designers and exhibitors. Among some of the hot “guests” set to appear at the 2009 London Fashion Week are Sienna Miller and her fashion designer sister Savannah, who have come up with an unusual collection to present at the show. Their label is called Twenty8Twelve, and will showcase fashions that the two have come up with over the past few years. Sienna is definitely going to have all eyes on her, because though she has made a name for herself as an actress, recent time in the tabloids has brought even more attention to her upcoming appearance at the London Fashion Week.
House of Holland and designer Henry Holland will also be making an appearance at London Fashion Week, and though he does have an odd style, he is one that will definitely attract attention for his off the wall fashion styling. Jayne Pierson is another name that is hot in England, as she will be presenting her work as part of Vivienne Westwood’s Collection. Her line is apparently said to contain quite a few “jaw-dropping dresses”, so she should be fun to watch. William Tempest and Jasper Gavida will also be ones to watch, Tempest is a designer who has been seen with Emma Watson wearing his articles, and Gavida won the competition “Project Catwalk”, and should have fans waiting to see her strut.
Some of the biggest or most notable exhibitors that will appear at London’s Fashion Week 2009 include Stephen Jones Millinery who will be presenting hats, Mawi which will be presenting jewelry and accessories, and Linda Farrow who will be presenting sunglasses and accessories. There are numerous other exhibitors that will be presenting at the London Fashion Week, and the list is linked at the bottom of the article.
There are certainly going to be a lot of new faces seen as both designers and exhibitors at London Fashion Week 2009, leading to what could be a very exciting show. The buzz around this year’s February show has been quite good, and there is a long list of designers who are ready to show off their new autumn and winter lines to the world. It will be a must-see event for those who can attend, and surely will generate a wide range of fashion trends for the year to come.
