London Fashion Week 2022 took place as a mixture of physical and digital events in February. We are proud to have launched our #LCFMA22 inaugural catwalk, showroom and exhibition within this, recognising the range of creative LCF talent stepping into industry and highlighting their artistic resilience in the midst of ongoing blended learning practices.

The highly anticipated AW22 showcase at LFW featured an array of designers who are shaping the city's fashion scene, including both established and emerging LCF alumni creating change with innovative and disruptive collections.

RIXO

Founded by Henrietta Rix & Orlagh McCloskey, RIXO designs are timeless and vintage inspired. Their showcased collection pays homage to Hollywood glamour.

Nensi Dojaka

2017 LCF graduate Nensi Dojaka’s collection explores strength and vulnerability through lingerie-inspired tailoring.

Ingrid Kraftchenko

Artist, activist and creative, Ingrid Kraftchenko’s avant-garde designs are hailed as “immersive and subversive British uniform, utilitarian articles for the anti-fashion youth.”

Feng Chen Wang

Feng describes this collection as reflecting on and embracing the feeling of “never completing something, never being fully happy with it; of always starting, never stopping, and never finishing.”

Bethany Williams

Humanitarian, sustainability designer and MA Menswear alumni Bethany Williams launched the collection Hands That Heal Us, using “organic, recycled and deadstock materials”.

Carlotta Barrera

Carlotta Barrera’s collection The Last Run is a call to action for climate change, drawing influence from “Spanish heritage, queer history and evolving gender identities”

J E CAI

Pioneering designs that are “tailored for the modern intellectual”, J E CAI launched a digital fashion showcase in collaboration with TONI&GUY.
