Matthew Williamson, Jonathan Saunders, Pringle and Antonio Berardi will join Burberry Prorsum in returning to show at London Fashion Week in February.
Berardi, who returned to show in London from Paris last season, said: “‘I am absolutely delighted to be returning to show in London again in February. London feels like home and I really enjoyed returning for the 25th Anniversary celebrations in September. I am really grateful to the BFC for the invitation to return and would also like to thank the British press for their continued support”.
Jonathan Saunders, added “I’m very happy to be showing in London again in February; I loved showing here in September. I’m based in London, and always will be, and so it is not only much easier but also really nice to show here amongst friends.”
British designer Matthew Williamson who will continue to show his mainline collection in London after a series of one-off returns, said: “Following the great success of the 25th Anniversary fashion week, I am very happy to announce my commitment to remaining in London for my AW2010 show.”
Caroline Rush, joint chief executive of the British Fashion Council, commented, “These designers and brands strengthen London’s proposition as a global fashion capital whilst retaining our reputation for nurturing innovative emerging designer fashion businesses. The British Fashion Council is delighted that all five have confirmed they will show in London this February and we look forward to working with them to attract leading media and buyers to London Fashion Week.”
