In London, we can look forward to Alternative Fashion Week presented by Alternative Arts. This year it will be 21-25 April 2008.
ALTERNATIVE FASHION WEEK is the event for new designers to be discovered. Hard on the heels of New York, Paris and Milan, London’s Alternative
Fashion Week brings out the most original and creative collections.
OVER SIXTY YOUNG DESIGNERS will be selected to show their work. Hundreds of applications are received from recent fashion and textile graduates, independent designers aiming to establish their label and designers from the world of circus, theatre, carnival and club – everything from the sublime to the sensational.
FASHION SHOWS will be open to the Press and Public daily at 1.15pm starring stunning NEW MODELS and contemporary live jazz.
TWELVE DIFFERENT designers will show each day. Original and recycled textiles are a major feature and there will be womenswear, menswear, headwear, footwear, workwear, leisurewear, underwear, fetish and fantasywear.
Here are two short videos from last year’s show:
