An exclusive catwalk show held in September, as part of London Fashion Week, showcases our three Finalists, and represents the culmination of months of hard work.
With a dedicated slot on the London Fashion Week schedule each year, the Fashion Fringe show has become one of the most eagerly anticipated showcases for emerging talent, with press and buyers alike attending to spot the next big name in London fashion design.
The 500-strong crowd of invited guests is always comprised of an eclectic mix of national & international buyers, press, celebrities, mentors, sponsors & friends. Some of our Partners extend invitations to key clients, guests and VIPs who are provided with exclusive Fashion Fringe experiences – such as backstage tours, meet-and-greets with our talented designers and full hospitality.
Because we showcase three distinctively separate designer collections all in one show, we are proud to host the largest backstage of London Fashion Week. With our 36 models, hair and make-up artists, stylists, dressers and event teams, the backstage of Fashion Fringe is a real showcase for the very best in the industry.
Following the main catwalk show is the announcement of our Fashion Fringe winning designer, decided on the night by our attending Chair and/or jury for that year. The Fashion Fringe Trophy, designed each year by acclaimed luxury jewellery designer Jessica McCormack, is presented to the winner at the award ceremony as soon as a decision has been made.
It is always a night of glamour and excitement that all of our designers and guests treasure.
