From the finest up-and-coming fashion talent from around the world, 16 designers will showcase a series of compelling installations to represent their respective country.

Dates and Times: Mon 11 - Mon 25 Feb 2019, 10:00 - 18:00 (10:00 - 20:00 on Wednesdays, Thursday and Fridays).

The International Fashion Showcase (IFS) nurtures and presents work from the finest up-and-coming fashion talent from around the world. The biennial fashion presentation is a partnership between the British Council, British Fashion Council, London College of Fashion, UAL and Somerset House.

The 16 represented countries are: Bangladesh, Brazil, Canada, Colombia, India, Georgia, Italy, Kenya, Lebanon, Lithuania, Netherlands, Rwanda, South Africa, Sri Lanka, Uruguay and Vietnam.

Some of the participating designers include Duran Lantink, from the Netherlands, whose ‘vagina’ trousers drew global attention in Janelle Monae’s PYNK video, self-taught Georgian designer Irakli Rusadze of Situationist and Rwandan Cedric Mizero and his bold ‘fashion for all’ designs.

The exhibition is a key part of London Fashion Week, giving both the public and industry professionals the opportunity to discover emerging fashion from four continents: Africa, America, Asia and Europe and to celebrate its global relevance. The collections presented offer a balanced mix of womenswear and menswear exploring topical but universally shared issues and present new ideas and solutions that are shaping fashion globally.
