The British Fashion Council (BFC) has unveiled the provisional schedule for London Fashion Week (LFW), running from February 17-21, including a headlining showcase from Burberry from new chief creative officer Daniel Lee.
The autumn/winter 2023 LFW provisional schedule is once again a digital-physical hybrid event and features both menswear and womenswear designers, including three participating designers from Ukrainian Fashion Week.
A highlight of the schedule will be the Burberry AW23 show, currently scheduled for 6pm on Monday, February 20, where Lee will present his new look for the British heritage brand following the departure of Riccardo Tisci after Burberry’s SS23 showcase in September.
Opening the event will be Paul Costelloe, who has received the 9am Friday, February 17 slot. He will be followed by NewGen talent Sinéad O'Dwyer, Bora Aksu, Fashion East, Edward Crutchley, Huishan Zhang, and Conner Ives.
