The British Fashion Council has announced that both House Of Holland and Self-Portrait will stage public shows during London Fashion Week. The designers will showcase their autumn/winter 2019 collections during three different time slots on Sunday 15 September.

This new format makes a big change for LFW, helping it to become more accessible to the wider public. The designers who will take part in the public-facing shows will change every season.


While the trade audience will attend a different schedule of catwalk shows and presentations across five days between 13-17 September, the public will be able to take part in an immersive fashion-week experience at the official London Fashion Week Hub. This will include catwalk shows, creative installations, industry-led panel talks and much more, offering an exclusive insight into the fashion industry.
