The British Have Landed


The British Fashion Council and the Centre for Fashion Enterprise partnered to bring 23 young British labels to New York for the second edition of London Show Rooms. The event was held at the Soho Grand Hotel on October 25th and 26th, and featured up-and-coming talent like Mary Katrantzou, Holly Fulton and Todd Lynn. Most designers were on hand to meet press and buyers, and speak about the inspirations behind their latest S/S 11 collections. The airy penthouse suites and comfortable adjoining terraces made for a luxurious setting for the sometimes-edgy designs. Stylesight editors attended a brunch held on the 25th that brought in dozens of industry professionals eager to see these inspirational designers’ work in person.
