LONDON — Anya Hindmarch is stepping off the catwalk treadmill and onto the shop floor with plans to stage events throughout the year rather than seasonal fashion shows.
The designer — whose elaborate London fashion spectacles have featured Broadway musical-style performances complete with dancing and singing handbags, lineups of male dancers and singers and models spinning in giant neon teacups — said she plans to replace her twice-a-year extravaganzas with a series of creative “happenings” four times a year.
