Sumary of From Barbour to Burberry — the Queen’s favourite fashion designers:
- As the highly anticipated London Fashion Week season rolls around next week, it will fall during the national mourning period of Queen Elizabeth II.
- Most shows however, will go ahead as planned, with the British Fashion Council stating: London Fashion Week is a business-to-business event, and an important moment for designers to show their collections at an exact moment in the fashion calendar, we recognise the work that goes into this moment.
- Some fashion houses – such as Burberry – have already cancelled their shows, with more reshufflings expected to be announced.
- The Queen was a keen supporter of British fashion and, with her medal, aimed to recognise design excellence.
