Established in 2010 Fashions Finest has just celebrated their successful launch in Nigeria and is set for its 16th season during London Fashion Week. As one of the largest off-schedule shows, this trade event has been a key instrument in providing the launch pad, which has developed and nurtured designers both nationally and internationally to high acclaim.
Fashions Finest host an array of catwalk events supported by extensive pop-ups and tailored exhibition space showcasing carefully curated designers not just from Britain, but from all over the world. Fashions Finest prides itself on being a key player in bringing exceptional talent to the main-stage; ensuring that opportunities for both recognition and reward, are more widely accessible and distributed. “Let’s Talk Fashion Business” launched by Fashions Finest on 17th September 2017 was developed to be an interactive Q&A discussion forum lead by a team of notable industry panellists whose primary goal is to enable emerging brands to successfully navigate the industry turning ideas into profit. Fashions Finest “Let’s Talk Fashion Business” has proven itself a successful solution, filling a neglected void; an extremely successful provision which remains in high demand.
Working with creatives from all over the globe, Fashions Finest believes in working together and inclusivity. This season is themed around both points. The political and resulting economic challenges faced by designer are not only addressed by being a viable platform but also through their network and partners. Partnering with Fashion Enter and its sister company Fashion Technology Academy has opened up a wealth of resources and expertise to designers at any stage of their career. In addition their eagerly anticipated Let’s Talk Fashion Business industry panel picks up on the theme of inclusivity a principle deeply ingrained in their ethos. Last season saw pintsize TV personality Gillian Keith with her daughters as well as paralympian Samanta Bullock on their catwalks. This seasons discaussion is called Beyond Representation – Inclusivity & Fashion and the talk will explore what brands could do beyond representing marginalised groups in campaigns, and what practices to put in place to ensure a healthier, happier business.
The talk will discuss the challenges faced by some navigating their career in fashion, as well as give practical advice around the changes required for a better, fairer industry and to build a better, more ethical business.
