London Fashion Week A/W 2017 is set to be another season celebrating truly international design talent, as seen in Sarah Mower's LFW preview on Vogue.com. The International Fashion Showcase is our flagship fashion project, this year bringing together designers from 26 countries across the globe. Alongside this, designers from British Council programmes in Pakistan and Indonesia will be showcasing collections in London. 

Fashion DNA: Pakistan 2016-17

Six Pakistani designers will showcase during London Fashion Week A/W 2017; Gulabo, JEEM, Munib Nawaz, The PinkTree Company, Sonya Battla and Zuria Dor.

Building on the success of the first cycle in 2015-16, this year’s designers have participated in an eight-month-long intensive training programme focusing on fashion business skills, sustainable and ethical production, branding and communications. Their resulting ready-to-wear capsule collections will be shown for the first time in a catwalk at Fashion Scout on Saturday 18 February styled by Rebekah Roy

The show offers an insight into the burgeoning fashion scene in Pakistan showcasing contemporary design, culture and textiles to the London Fashion Week audience. The designers will go on to show the collections locally in a catwalk hosted by programme partner Fashion Pakistan Week in Karachi.
