It’s Fashion Week season for Fall Winter 2016 collections! New York shows are almost over and next stop is London. If you happen to be in the city, do not miss the IFS (International Fashion Showcase), at the Somerset House. This year’s edition ‘Fashion Utopias’, will be the fifth edition of the annual event sponsored by the British Council and British Fashion Council.

For the first time, Lebanese designers will participate in the event. In an exhibit titled ‘Blueprint Beirut’, and in partnership with The Arab British Centre, eight Starch Foundation designers will each showcase a creation reflecting their vision of Beirut. Pieces by Margherita Abi-Hanna, Joe Arida, Mira Hayek, Timi Hayek, Rayya Morcos, Nour Najem, Sevag Dilsizian and Bashar Assaf will be displayed in a traditional Lebanese home setting re-imagined by architect Elie Metni. Lebanese talent takes over London!
‘Blueprint Beirut’ will be held at West Wing Galleries, Somerset House, London as part of ‘Fashion Utopias’ from February 19 to 23
