The Exhibition at London Fashion Week will play host to over 170 exhibitors this season, including 60 designers who are new to London Fashion Week.

The Exhibition, which opens tomorrow in London’s Somerset House, will be arranged over four floors in the south wing, with new designers including Draw in Light, Nancy Van Ostren, Sarah Baadarani, Shao Yen Chen, Teatum Jones and Tze Goh.

Newgen at The Exhibition, sponsored by Topshop, will showcase 17 UK designers tipped for success, including first time exhibitors milliner Nasir Mazhar and directional designer Thomas Tait.

The British Fashion Council’s ethical showcase, Estethica, sponsored by Monsoon, will be located in the embankment galleries at Somerset House. This season it will see 30 designers showcase their ethically aware labels, the largest Estethica showcase to date. New designers include Fashion East winner Dr Noki and milliner Jacob James.

Further areas include the BFC/Elle Talent Launch Pad winner’s designated area and The Navy Board Room which will exhibit a group of Newgen alumni.

The Exhibition will be open from 10am to 7pm from February 18 to 21 and will be open from 8.30am to 6pm on February 22. On February 23 there will be a dedicated showcase of up and coming menswear talent for menswear day.

Caroline Rush, chief executive of the BFC, said: “This is an edited exhibition for the UK and international leading retailers and media offering new talent selections alongside established brands and showrooms. An early morning opening on Tuesday 22nd for those who cover the shows and a working lounge for buyers will make the exhibition even more accessible.”
