London Fashion Week 2017 Showcase & Reception
Evening before the madness of London Fashion Week February 2017
On the relative serenity of the opening night of London Fashion Week, London Ethnic hosted an intimate reception for press and buyers, showcasing some of London’s emerging designers at the Terrace Pavilion of the Houses of Parliament.
The event was created to allow the fashion crowd to enjoy a night before the busy week ahead with a glass of wine, canapes and to see designers who embody London Ethnic’s ethical values at one of the most iconic buildings in London, Terrace Pavilion inside Westminster Palace.
All showcased labels ‘Polosophia’, ‘Karen Gold’ and ‘Diaso London’ are ethical & sustainable brands based in London who produce in the UK. The catwalk showcased bright African patterns, lace silhouettes & story-telling garments in a natural & floral makeup moodboard, all put together in ethical fabrics. Attendees, including well-known ethical fashion advocates like Baroness Lola Young, learnt more about the designers inspirations & background work through interviews with them before their catwalk shows. “Congrats to all @LondonEthnic promoting diversity & sustainability in LFW. Lovely show in Houses of Parliament.” (Baroness Lola Young of Hornsey)”
Event was sponsored by Kites and Bites, Creative Industry Hub, products from Latest in Beauty, Pip & Nut, Metcalfe’s Skinny Popcorn were provided for goody bags. Venue was decorated by Handy Flowers, who created amazing entrance, table, catwalk arrangements and an impressive floral wall.
