The British Fashion Council (BFC) announced London Fashion Week's program. The event will take place in June presented by 1664 Blanc from June, Friday 7 to Sunday 9. LFW will continue celebrating its 40th anniversary by igniting a cultural moment in London. The event will provide a platform for diverse British designers and brands focusing on the depth and breadth of menswear businesses in the UK.

On June, Friday 7, the BFC is taking over the Institute of Contemporary Arts (ICA) to celebrate LFW40 and three of the cultures that have made a rich and significant contribution to the British fashion industry, to build on these each year. This year’s guest curators are Clara Amfo, award-winning radio, and television broadcaster; Kai-Isaiah Jamal, Poet, Model, consultant, and visibility activist and Simran Randhawa, writer, and creative, who will curate a cultural program of events informed by incredible exhibitions by guest photographers, Dani D’Ingeo, Stephen Akinyemi, and Tami Aftab.

The three cultures informing this year’s exhibitions and programming are Black culture centered around self-love; South Asian culture with a focus on pattern, textile, and craftsmanship; and queer culture, with a spotlight on young creative voices from the trans community. Rooted in London, storytelling will focus on British brands and designers, as well as personal stories from a variety of communities within these cultures. In celebration of LFW40, there will be a retrospective installation that celebrates the success of LFW and the important role it plays globally at the intersection of culture.

The program of cultural events includes Afternoon “T”–“You make this place beautiful” hosted by Kai-Isaiah Jamal; Conversations: A dinner celebrating South Asian impact on British fashion hosted by Simran Randhawa, and Sound & Harmony: Clara Amfo spotlights Black artists.

Across the weekend, the breadth of British menswear will be celebrated from Savile Row to sportswear and rising talent to heritage brands, with a “40 for 40” program in honour of LFW40. This will consist of a lineup of 40 activations hosted by British brands and designers across the city including catwalk shows, presentations, and events. The BFC will take over the Groucho Club on Sunday, June 9 to provide designers and brands with a dynamic activation space.
