When could be a better time to discover new, emerging fashion talents on your travels than during bi-annual London Fashion Week, when the crème da la crème of the fashion world descend on London for a seven-day showcase of the latest designs and trends?

One of the biggest dates in Britain’s events calendar, the next London Fashion Week comes to town from 15 to 19 September this year. The event is renowned for showcasing rising fashion talents, so keep your eye out for these up-and-coming designers and be one step ahead of the fashion curve.

Alice Archer
With a growing reputation as one of Britain’s most exciting emerging designers, Alice Archer is definitely one to watch. She boasts a solid fashion background, having graduated from the prestigious art school, Central Saint Martins in London, and as a student used her expertise in the delicate art of embroidery to work with the artist Tracey Emin on her creations. Archer’s collections feature intricate needlework and striking prints, and her pieces are made using luxurious fabrics from chiffon to silk. Snap them up at high-fashion boutiques across London including Browns Fashion, The Place, Alex Eagle and Fortnum & Mason.

Shauna Fay
Shauna Fay has become a go-to designer for women who want to dazzle, be it at a party, the races, a wedding or even on the red carpet (in the past, Fay has been given just 12 days to make a BAFTA-worthy frock – and succeeded!). Her designs are elegant and beautifully structured, best accompanied with a fabulous hat and a glass of champagne. Find her store in central Belfast, Northern Ireland.

 

Hiut Denim
For three decades, 400 people used to make 35,000 pairs of jeans a week in the west Wales town of Cardigan, which (despite its name) was synonymous with jeans at the time. The work was then outsourced overseas and the industry died out, depriving a tenth of the town’s population of their jobs. Fast-forward to today and Hiut Denim is bringing denim back to Cardigan, to use the skills of so many of the locals and to breathe new life into the town. ‘Do one thing well’ is their motto, so it’s just jeans – but, boy, are these good jeans. Find them stocked at 31 The Store in Morgan’s Arcade, Cardiff, and other shops across Britain.

Bella Singleton
Bella Singleton’s luxurious silk scarves provide instant glamour to any outfit. After studying Printed Textiles at Leeds College of Art in northern England, ‘illustrator at heart’ Bella Singleton set up her eye-catching accessories brand in 2015. Her pieces have intriguing names, such as ‘Believe in Me’ and ‘The Secret Garden’, and each is designed in Norfolk and individually printed in Sussex on fine crepe de chine. Find them at Tate Modern, the British Library and Marianna Boutique in Ipswich, east England.

Sophia Webster
Sophia Webster founded her eponymous label in 2012, and has already won a host of accolades for her fabulous footwear. Webster injects fun into footwear with her gloriously quirky designs that incorporate wings, flamingos and colourful slogans with elegant stilettos, trainers and flats. Her flagship store opened in Mount Street in Mayfair in 2016 and you can also find her shoes at Harrods in London, Harvey Nichols in Birmingham and Selfridges in Manchester.

Bobby Abley
Menswear designer Bobby Abley’s clothes are guaranteed to make you smile. The London-based designer launched his own label in 2012 and was featured on the prestigious MAN catwalk for the inaugural London Collections: Men in the capital. Abley riffs on contemporary culture to create colourful, comfortable, cartoon-inspired clothing, taking Mickey Mouse, Aladdin, Power Rangers and Storm Troopers as his various muses. Pick up his quirky designs at Selfridges and Dover Street Market in London.

Losing My Way

&DAUGHTER
Buffy Reid is the ‘daughter’ in this luxury knitwear brand’s name. She learned her craft from her father Columba before the pair went on to establish their company in London in 2013. Made in Hawick, in the Scottish Borders, as well as in Ireland, &DAUGHTER’s sumptuous jumpers and accessories are crafted from fine natural yarns. As appropriate for a bracing countryside walk as a shopping trip in the city, &DAUGHTER combines fashion-forward designs with practical touches, such as roomy pockets. Find their products across Britain, at Selfridges, The Conran Shop and Envoy of Belfast.

Justine Tabak
For a true flavour of Britain, discover Justine Tabak, whose beautiful clothing is ‘inspired, fashioned and made in the British Isles’. For her first collection, she drew on her roots in northern and southern Britain, with Lancashire mill girls and East London ‘pearly queens’ threading their way through her work. The finest fabrics and most unique prints combine to make for timeless pieces, from beautifully-cut dresses to gorgeous silk-satin scarves. Keep an eye on Justine’s social media channels for details of regular pop-up shops in London to lay your hands on her covetable wares.
