Fashion Designer Raf Simons To Stage Spring 2023 Show During Frieze London
LONDON — Raf Simons has chose a new date to present his brand’s spring 2023 collection. The Belgian fashion designer will now stage the show in London on Oct. 13, a day after Frieze London and Frieze Masters open their doors to the public at Regent’s Park.
The brand called off its supposed London debut on Sept. 18, in respect to the death of Queen Elizabeth II.
Frieze London is expected not only to be a busy time for the global art community, but the British fashion industry is also looking to make some noise during this period.
Alexander McQueen is scheduled to show its spring 2023 collection on Oct. 11, a day before Frieze London, while Prada will resume its Prada Paradoxe fragrance global launch party on Oct. 13, the same day as its co-creative director Simons’ own show.
The British Fashion Council is planning a celebration in honor of London Fashion Week “with a focus on London as a creative capital” around this period, which will include citywide parties and store activations.
