COMING BACK: Two more designers have revealed plans to show during London Fashion Week to mark the 25th anniversary of the event.
Antonio Berardi, who launched his label in London in 1995, will come back to the British capital after showing in Paris since 2005. “London has always felt like my home,” he said. “I am grateful to the [British Fashion Council] for the invitation to return.” The Italian beer brand Peroni — which has recently collaborated with Berardi on a leather weekend bag exclusive to Yoox.com — is sponsoring the designer’s show.
Also coming back is Sass & Bide, the Australian denim and ready-to-wear label, which will show on the evening of Sept. 18. Designers Sarah-Jane Clarke and Heidi Middleton first showed in London in 2002, and most recently have been showing the label in New York.
Berardi and Sass & Bide are the latest in a list of labels returning to London this season, including Burberry, Matthew Williamson, Pringle, Jonathan Saunders and Jasmine de Milo.
