London Fashion Week Showcases Slow Textiles!


Jonathan Saunders for the Green Carpet Challenge yesterday at Somerset House.

We're excited to report that London Fashion Week opened this week with a star-studded slow textiles showcase at Somerset House! Eight London-based designers team together with Livia Firth and CLASS this week to create a timeless fashion moment that celebrates British fashion, film and  sustainable fabrics.

Livia Firth's Hollywood connections have inspired a celebration of British Film with the best of 'best practice' British Fashion! All the textiles used in the eight showcase silhouettes - inspired by British movie classics - were sourced by Guisy Bettoni CEO at the superlative sustainable textiles materials library, CLASS Eco Library.

The eight London-based designers ensembles.



Here is the Green Carpet Challenge Team that made it all possible yesterday at Somerset House, London, including Livia Firth, Lucy Siegle, Jocelyn Whipple and Orsola de Castro!
