As students up-and-down the country jostle for their moment in the Graduate Fashion Week spotlight, the LCF BA show has established itself as a showcase to savour as it consistently provides the springboard for future fashion stars to introduce themselves to the world. From Jonathan Anderson to Ryan Lo and Jimmy Choo to Sophia Webster, established and exciting talent alike all started at LCF. As its graduates look to shape fashion’s tomorrow, the institution itself continuously pushes possibilities and questions the status quo. For 2018, it’s pushing it further than ever before. In a radical departure from previous years, #LCFBA18 will weave digital exhibition with physical catwalk as it promises to challenge convention and celebrates collaboration.
Mirroring the students’ hunger for immediacy, the show will be broadcast live using 360-degree technology, enabling the viewer to immerse themselves in the show from anywhere in the world. Ahead of tonight’s show, its Creative Director talks us through a few of the names that we need to know. Alice Pons
