Twice a year, the showings of the Spring Summer and Autumn Winter collections descends upon the capital. Each season, certain designers have much anticipation associated with their presentations. For this season, here are the ones we have our eye on.


Shirmps Shaun James Cox BFC

Founded by Hannah Weiland in 2013, this cruelty-free label first garnered acclaim for its luxe faux fur coats. More recently celebrated for a selection of beaded handbags, expect to see a collection that builds upon these foundational platforms with more whimsical styles that celebrate femininity—whilst always using responsible materials and production practices.


Asai LWF

This line from South London native A Sai Ta has been celebrated for its distinctive aesthetic. Having trained at The Row and Yeezy, he understands the importance of maintaining consistency and a defined voice. Expect this collection to build upon the brand pillars of colour and innovative fabric manipulation, alongside the addition of more tailored styles.

Matty Bovan

Matty Bovan Jess Mahaffey BFC

Inspired by Englishness as a whole and it’s myriad interpretations, Central Saint Martins-trained Bovan will present his fourth runway collection. Worn by many celebrities and stocked in some of the world’s best boutiques, his bold shapes, patterns, and colours push fashion boundaries and add excitement to each season.

Mark Fast

Mark Fast Eeva Rinne BFC

Championed for his intricate knitwear designs, Canadian-born Mark Fast regularly innovates with fabric and construction. Having just triumphantly returned to the catwalk with his Spring Summer 20 collection last September, his upcoming show will be one to watch. Recognized for his commitment to using models of all shapes and sizes, he celebrates the curves of a woman’s body—making him a go-to for the likes of Beyonce, Rihanna, and other stars.

Charlotte Knowles

Charlotte Knowles Getty BFC

Interpreting feminine sensuality in new and unique ways, Charlotte Knowles’ designs play peekaboo with the body. Her last collection featured strategically-placed cutouts and ties, elaborating upon her signature lingerie-inspired aesthetic with wearable, fashion-forward designs. Expect more of the same—and then some—for this latest show.


Burberry Charlie Wheeler BFC 2

Since taking the reins at Burberry, Ricardo Tisci has interwoven signature codes of the house with his own aesthetic. This has manifested itself in many ways, from an updated rainbow-striped Nova check to newly monochrome iterations of the iconic trench. What will be seen this season remains unknown, but guarantees are a covetable collection with a thoughtful streetwear influence.
