What do you get when you cross the British Fashion Council (ie: some of the hottest design talent in town) with online shopping hub, eBay? The BFC Contemporary Shop, or a shop stuffed by some of the capital’s hottest designers.
From Paper London to Zoe Jordan, and Alexis Barrell to Georgia Hardinge, the shop is filled with LFW items for under £100. Think statement silk scarves, clutch bags, phone cases and 3D crepe tees that are perfect for fashion week season. As well as this, Lulu Guinness’s tote SS15 tote bag has exclusively dropped in the store today: the perfect excuse to go LFW shopping!
Speaking to LOOK, the fashion journalist, TV presenter and ambassador for the BFC’s Contemporary, Louise Roe, told us that her favourite piece from the collection is “Zoe Jordan’s silver clutch. It’s so clean and chic, and I love a pop of metallic for autumn; I’d wear it with jeans and my silver brogues.”
Louise also told us to look out for “Simone Rocha and Sister by Sibling. I’m really looking forward to the big Marchesa anniversary show. It’s been forever since they showed in London and their catwalks are always this theatrical, dreamy fairytale.”
Get down to the BFC Contemporary between the 5 and 21 September. See you there.
