Over 50 brands from around the world recently showcased their new SS15 collections as part of The Catwalk Edit, an exclusive trade showroom event held at The Chelsea Old Town Hall.
A mix of womenswear RTW, lingerie, swim and accessory brands were joined by selected emerging designers to present their new lines from their dedicated spot in the venue, as well as with hourly catwalk shows throughout the day, soundtracked by DJ duo, The Glitter Beats.
Kicking off the eight catwalk shows was a presentation highlighting new designers, including Jessica Goddard, Olga Profutkina, Emily Patten and Li Jing, followed by a RTW and accessories catwalk. Ipanema footwear sponsored the swim and beachwear catwalk next, before two lingerie catwalks and a final RTW presentation.
Founder of The Catwalk Edit, Joseph Bachman, commented: “After the huge success of our debut event and the positive response we have received from press, buyers and the participating brands, The Catwalk Edit will be making a return in February 2015 with even more designers and catwalk shows. I would like to say a big thanks to my team at Calico Ventures and our sponsors. I would also like to thank the brands who participated, you all are very talented individuals and we are pleased to help you get the exposure you deserve.”
