Key trends and looks for A/W 11 will be showcased in a series of free catwalk shows on Carnaby Street, W1 from the fashion forward and unique retailer offer in Carnaby.

As a prelude to London Fashion Week, this catwalk show will be staged three times during Saturday 10 September (1pm, 3pm, 5pm). On the day, each show will feature the key looks from the A/W 11 collections available from Carnaby shops.

The looks have been curated by 3 guest stylists from the fashion industry including Sarah Owen, co- founder and owner of boutique Lucy In Disguise, with her sister Lily Allen. Produced by Doll, the team behind ON|OFF for London and Paris Fashion Weeks, the catwalk shows will reflect the variety, quality and unique nature of this vibrant style destination.

There will also be salon shows with live music in the Newburgh Quarter showcasing the ‘Made in Great Britain’ collection.
