The Fall Winter 2020-21 Men’s catwalk season has begun, starting in London at The Truman Brewery, Spitalfields. The venue hosted both the BFC runways and the DiscoveryLAB presentation area, where emerging designers are given the opportunity to present their latest collections to key industry players.
A Sustainable Future
Sustainability took centre stage with the British Fashion Council’s Positive Fashion initiative showcasing designers such as Bethany Williams, Nicholas Daley, Ahluwalia and Bianca Saunders whose contributions are creating a more sustainable future for fashion.
