Fashion Utopias: the International Fashion Showcase 2016 is a series of specially commissioned and curated fashion installations featuring work by emerging designers from 24 countries. Created by the British Council and British Fashion Council , it is a key part of the London Fashion Week public programme which forms a city-wide celebration of fashion that is open to all.
Between 19 – 23 February 2016 the West Wing at Somerset House will be transformed into an imaginary terrain where an emerging generation of international designers and curators invite visitors to share their versions of the Utopia. The exhibition is part of Somerset House’s Utopia 2016: A Year of Imagination and Possibility.
Admission is free but pre-registration advised. Pre-register through Billetto here.
The guide gives details of all the countries participating in the showcase with contributions from Sarah Mower MBE, Jihane Dyer, Joseph Pochodzaj and James Dawe. Please download your guide or pick one up at the IFS 2016 exhibition.
