Now in its eighth year, the event will return to the runways of New York, London, Paris and, for the first time, Milan, in support of independent fashion talent.

Tom & Teddy, which designs swimwear for men and boys, will showcase its SS18 collections on the London catwalk at Devonshire Square on September 16. The show will coincide with London Fashion Week.

An Estonian underwear brand named Friends will also appear on the London runway.

Our team of curators have reviewed more than 20,000 designers since February 2017. The state of independent global fashion talent is truly exciting, and we cannot wait to share it with you.”
