LONDON — The British Fashion Council has released its schedule for London Fashion Week’s spring 2014 season, spreading the city’s better-known designers across the five-day event, which runs from Sept. 13 to 17.
Christopher Raeburn, Moschino Cheap & Chic and Todd Lynn will show on Friday, Sept. 13. Sister by Sibling, J.W. Anderson and Richard Nicoll are set for Saturday, Sept. 14.
L’Wren Scott and Tom Ford both remain on the billing, while Mulberry’s show on Sunday, Sept. 15, will be Emma Hill’s last for the brand.
Absent from the schedule is Issa, which will not show for a couple of seasons as the brand redefines itself following the departure of founder Daniella Helayel as creative director. Meanwhile, Kinder Aggugini is said to be taking a creative sabbatical and Louise Gray will have a two-season break from showing to concentrate on design and consultancy projects.
New to the lineup is Barbara Casasola. Pearce Fionda and Stella McCartney for Adidas will stage presentations.
@deciem is all about transparency and approachability. At this year’s WWD Digital Beauty Forum, the brand's co-CEO @nicolakilner said talking to customers directly about the ingredients in products and how they work is key. #wwdsummits #wwdbeauty
‘We didn't know how relevant our film would be when we were making it. When Steven [Rogers] wrote the script Trump wasn't president, class divide in America wasn't as evident as it is now, though it was present. The Time’s Up movement hadn't began and the way we look at women and treat women who speak out — thankfully that is something that seems to have shifted in the last year. I think we just need to continue making art that provokes the conversation and do what we can,’ said ‘I, Tonya’ actress @margotrobbie.

Gemma Arterton is joined on the @bafta’s red carpet by Eileen Pullen and Gwen Davis, the two women who started the fight for the pay-gap. ‘They represent a normal person speaking out for what is right. Speak out, we will listen and anyone can speak out,’ said Arterton. #eebaftas #timesup #wwdeye (📸: David Fisher)
