London Fashion Week News

Interesting news tidbit: Jonathan Saunders is going to show his collection in London this upcoming season. He joins the likes Burberry, Pringle of Scotland and Matthew Williamson in moving his show to back to LDN in order to celebrate the 25th anniversary of London Fashion Week.

Apparently, he may not be the last designer to announce such a return. We should expect some more announcements soon, as there are supposedly "talks going on with other big names who we're confident will come back," said Harold Tillman, president of the British Fashion Council.

I wonder who he could be referring to? Maybe Alexander McQueen? Or Stella McCartney? And what does this have to do with Freja? Well, she's never walked in London before, yet most of the shows moving there so far are ones that she traditionally walks in (with Burberry being the most consistent runway job).

Does this mean that we might see Freja make her first appearance on the British catwalks? Or does this mean less runway shows for her in the other three cities? She was just in London recently so it's not like she's never been there for work. But I wonder, will she break tradition and part with what I'm sure is her much needed rest week between New York and Milan to walk all the shows now showing in London? Or will the upcoming SS season be just another disappointment for Freja fans like her past two unexpectedly truncated SS seasons? I guess these are just some more questions that we won't get answers to until September. Sigh. At least as Freja fans we're used to being patient between sightings. Still sucks though.

this new re-emergence of LFW will surely exhaust the top models.i definitely think Freja will be there.
btw, do you have Freja's early interview with V magazine? it's quite hilarious and nostalgic,you know since she doesn't do interviews anymore.

I wish I was as sure as you are about Freja being in London! :) And yes, I do have that interview. It's totally hilarious and a definite classic by now.

u're getting me excited about lfw already and it's ages away! i really hope she does do london. it'd be such a let down if she doesn't. is there a reason why she's always missed london?

i think she'll be at LFW.if her homegirls(lily,raquel,heidi,cat, etc) are gonna be there, freja will hopefully make an appearance.Stella and Matthew are fond of freja.

I don't know why she's always missed London. I'm sure there's a good reason, but usually all the more well known models miss London as well.

Like all of you, I hope she walks there, but I wouldn't count on it yet.
