Designers including Peter Pilotto, Meadham Kirchhoff and Mark Fast will sell in New York next week as the British Fashion Council extends its London Show Rooms scheme.
For the first time, the London Show Rooms programme, which has initially helped fund designers to show at showrooms in Paris, will take emerging London Fashion Week designers to New York.
The scheme, which is a joint venture between the British Fashion Council and Centre for Fashion Enterprise, will provide subsidised showroom space at Penthouse Lofts, Soho Grand Hotel, for three days from March 23 to 25.
London Show Rooms has taken designers to Paris every season since September 2008. The scheme has been extended to New York this season to widen the exposure of the emerging British labels.
