Fashion Designers are distressed with London Fashion Week

Friday, December 12, 2008

Betty Jackson on of the designer said "It's certainly odd that there is no squeeze being put on anybody else. This is an issue that needs to be raised. They are pushing London because we are not as strong as New York or Milan. London has always been vulnerable from a lot of perspectives – it is young and innovative but this industry functions more on finance than aesthetics." It was published in independent.co.uk which is a online magazine.

In the start magazine writes about the London fashion week, “Top British fashion designers claim London Fashion Week is being intentionally crushed by its rivals because it has refused to surrender its independence. The flagship UK fashion festival, which is held twice a year and opens today, is facing a threat that could reduce it from six to four days in its spring incarnation next year.

The claims emerged after the rival New York fashion week announced it was going to show its collections a week later than usual in February next year, a move that would cut London Fashion Week down to a bare four days, forcing top designers to abandon it and go elsewhere.”

British Fashion Council spokeswoman said, “"London Fashion Week is rich in talent. We currently have one of the most exciting crops of emerging designers showing.”
All the aspect of the fashion shows that the politics in the fashion week has taken place very strongly.
