London Fashion Week: full schedule revealed

The British Fashion Council has published the full schedule for London Fashion Week complete with a key showing which designers are merging their men's and women's shows and which are going "see now, buy now".

Despite the growing shift towards "co-ed" (combined men's and women's) catwalks and see now, buy now, most designers are sticking to the formula of showing AW17 in advance for now.

The event will take place at its new home at The Store Studios, 180 Strand from Friday 17 February to Tuesday 21 February. Catwalks will take place at the BFC Show Space at The Store Studios along with some presentations; other official presentations will take place at The Painting Rooms at the Royal Society of Arts on Durham House Street.

Day one kicks off with a co-ed catwalk show at the BFC Show Space by Teatum Jones; other major brands showing that day will stick with womenswear and show AW17 including Bora Aksu, Eudon Choi, Paul Costelloe and PPQ.

On day two Julien Macdonald will stage a co-ed show and others who will be showing both men's and women's during the five days include Globetrotter, Margaret Howell, Burberry and Toogood. Only Burberry is officially listed as adopting see now, buy now but it is likely other brands will feature some immediately available product in their shows; Alice Temperley and Henry Holland, who will both show at LFW, have done this in previous seasons.

The hottest tickets for the week include Burberry (7.30pm, 20 February), JW Anderson (4pm, 18 January), Simone Rocha (6pm, 18 February), Christopher Kane (3pm, 20 February), Versus (9pm, 18 February), Mulberry (4pm, 19 February) and Erdem (11am, 20 February).

Roland Mouret

Roland Mouret returning to London

Roland Mouret is the big name to return to London Fashion Week, as previously reported. His show, which is being staged to mark 20 years of his brand, will take place at midday on 19 February. However London Fashion Week has lost a big name in Paul Smith, who has decided to show both his men's and women's shows together in Paris at the end of Paris Men's Fashion Week and at the start of Couture on 22 January.

Vivienne Westwood will show both men's and women's at London Fashion Week Men's, which also takes place at The Store Studios from 6-9 January. Westwood's show will take place on 9 January  at 2pm.

A number of menswear designers are showing both men's and women's during London Fashion Week Men's including Nigel Cabourn, Katie Eary, YMC, Casely-Hayford, Astrid Andersen, Agi & Sam, Maharishi, Christopher Raeburn, Belstaff and John Smedley.
