Once a year London Fashion Week invites designers from all around the world – nearly 30 countries – to showcase their creations at the International Fashion Showcase. It started four years ago in 2012 as part of the ambition to give the London Olympics a lasting cultural impact. After the first show the event has taken on a life of its own, becoming not only a forum for international designers, but also curators to set out how their generation sees things.
My native Estonian teams have won the best showcase award two years in a row with very strong set ups in 2013 and 2014. Unfortunately this year Estonia was not participating(probably banned from the showcase for winning too many times in a row!:)).
The exhibition, held in industrial surroundings of Brewer Street Car Park, was full of creativity enabling to observe the cultural differences and similarities of creative minds worldwide.
My personal favorites varied from Chilean designer ´s stylishly elegant work of unraveled scarf-dress to utterly creative collections of bodily artefacts by Filipino designers based on Philippine folk tales.
