Video: London Fashion Week begins and #LondonIsOpen

The British Fashion Council has released a video in support of London mayor Sadiq Khan’s #LondonIsOpen campaign to encourage investment and economic activity in the capital since the Brexit vote.

London Fashion Week began today. The event, which runs until 20 September, features more than 250 designers and will welcome a global audience of media and retailers from 58 countries. 

London Fashion Week begins today, showing that London is open to the world and is an international leader of creativity and entrepreneurship,” said Khan. “There’s a fantastic range of designers and talent on the schedule this season, highlighting the very best the industry has to offer, from big brands to independent retailers, the London fashion scene has never been more diverse.

“The fashion industry epitomises all that is great about the capital and I’m delighted to see the British Fashion Council bring the industry together to support our #LondonIsOpen campaign.”
