Scoop London and London Fashion Week collaborate for SS16 editions

The newest addition to UK indies’ buying calendars, Scoop London, has collaborated with London Fashion Week on the SS16 editions of both events in a bid to ensure buyers get the most out of their visit to the capital this September.

Scoop London will run at the Saatchi Gallery in Chelsea from the 20-22 September, while LFW is taking up its new residence at Brewer Street Car Park in the heart of Soho from the 18-22 September, and organisers of both events will work together on both transport and fast-track entry for accredited visitors.

All accredited buyers registered for Scoop London, as well as for the established August edition of Scoop, will be approved for fast-track entry to the Designer Showrooms of LFW, simply by showing their Scoop badge and a business card at the entrance desk. Likewise, all LFW accredited buyers can automatically gain fast-track entry into the brand new Scoop London show, which will feature a hand-picked selection of UK and international names including leading collections showing in the UK for the very first time.

Buyers will also be able to take advantage of free transport between the two venues, with a regular shuttle service running between Soho and the Saatchi Gallery on King’s Road.

Caroline Rush, CEO of The British Fashion Council comments: “We are delighted that Scoop London will take place during London Fashion Week SS16, as it’s the first time both trade shows will coincide. From Chelsea to Soho our aim is to be able to offer all designers the best buyers, press and industry professionals consolidating London’s position as the most vibrant and innovative fashion capital in the world.”

The two shows will complement each other with Scoop London showing a completely different line-up of labels to LFW, with over 130 international designer collections and emerging British designers. Scoop London visitors can expect to see a carefully curated and eclectic mix of labels such as Karina IK, Cristina Diez, Chillerton Shoes, Kate Spade, My Name is Lolo, Giulia Barela, Fera Jewellery, Sweety Jane, Mathilde Danglade, Heidi Higgins, Delan, WS Studio, BDBA, Forms Studio and Loxley England.
