AT London Fashion Week (LFW), highlights comprise newcomers Barbara Casasola and Claire Barrow, as well as Manolo Blahnik’s LFW debut.
The buzziest young designer on the schedule, thanks to a rumour that luxury stable LVMH is considering making the east London-based designer an investment offer he can’t refuse. Whether or not Anderson follows in the footsteps of Christopher Kane, whose label recently joined the Kering stable, his show is sure to be packed to the rafters.
Brazilian-born and Central Saint Martins-trained, Casasola is a hotly tipped newcomer. She learned her way around a seriously sexy frock with two years as Roberto Cavalli’s righthand woman, and has since been working in Paris for Lanvin and See by Chloe. She is shortlisted for the prestigious Dorchester Collection prize.
Bath’s best-shod resident, Manolo Blahnik, has designed shoes in Britain for over four decades – but this week marks his debut on the London fashion week schedule. He will also host a screening of a short film starring his latest collection of sublimely elegant shoes.
Claire Barrow, Ashley Williams and Ryan Lo: Lulu Kennedy’s Fashion East stable has a blue chip pedigree as the nursery slopes on which British fashion’s most talented, most fun and most original names pick up speed before hitting the big time.
