Raft of LFW shows to be rescheduled due to clash with Queen's funeral

Sep 12, 2022

Following the death of the Queen last week, the British Fashion Council has recommended that London Fashion Week shows due to take place on the day of her funeral should be rescheduled and that means changes for Christopher Kane and Roksanda, among others.

The state funeral has been confirmed for next Monday (September 19), which will also be a public holiday. This means that while it’s not obligatory for businesses to close, most shops are likely to be closed, as well as shows being moved.

As far as LFW is concerned, aside from Roksanda and Christopher Kane, other shows and presentations due to to take place on Monday included Eftychia, Chopova Lowena, Ancuta Sarca, Edeline Lee, Pronounce, Sinead O’Dwyer, Roberta Einer, Dilara Findikoglu, Chet Lo, Emilia Wickstead, Paul & Joe, Di Petsa, and Helen Anthony.

There were evening shows and events on the schedule too and the BFC has also recommended that events like parties and other celebrations across the whole of the fashion week should be cancelled.

Queen Elizabeth had a close relationship with London fashion week having even attended the event back in 2018 when she presented Richard Quinn with the inaugural Queen Elizabeth II Award for British Design.

Prior to being sat front row at his AW18 show, she toured the Designer Showrooms event to view the collections and met some of the creatives behind the labels.
