Born from the popularity of its existing International edition, Scoop is launching a second show, Scoop London, to meet the demand of brands wanting to join the Scoop family.
With this year’s schedule extending to August and September and plans to host four shows a year, an even richer selection of designers will now have the opportunity to exhibit at London’s Saatchi Gallery.
The timetable has been devised to cater for overseas labels and their production agendas as well as the high-end collections and young British designers who expressed an interest in Scoop running alongside London Fashion Week. The timing alignment with LFW will also make it easier for international buyers to come to the show, as many of the key stores from Europe, the US and further afield only make it to London once each season.
The first show of each new season, Scoop International, will run on its existing dateline and will feature a similar label profile to what is currently on offer, primarily international contemporary collections and the confirmed dates for summer 2016 collections will take place this year on 2nd-4th August.
The second show of each season will feature international designer collections, first and second lines and collections from emerging British designers, and will run during London Fashion Week. The first edition of this new show, Scoop London, will run at the Saatchi Gallery this year on 20th-22nd September 2015. Scoop London will have a completely different line-up of labels to London Fashion Week, but one that could definitely appeal to LFW visitors.
Buyers that visit Scoop International would do well to put the dates for both shows in their diaries now, for those stocking the labels present at Scoop International this season are guaranteed to find equally breathtaking collections at Scoop London, with first key names to be revealed over the next few weeks.
