Philip Treacy joins LFW Spring 2013 Provisional Schedule
Another new name has climbed on board the bustling London Fashion Week train for the upcoming Spring 2013 season. With the release of the LFW Provisional Schedule, it has been announced that Sir Philip Treacy will show in September along with Preen by Thornton Bregazzi and Rag & Bone. Treacy will stage a catwalk show on September 16.
Another newcomer includes Australian label Willow which will hold a salon show on September 14. While the LFW Spring 2013 schedule is set to get more additions with Anya Hindmarch and Aussie designer Richard Nicoll to host runway shows after both staging presentations at LFW last season. Moschino's Cheap & Chic, which made its London début last season, will return again to show on September 15.
After spending six years showing in New York, Preen recently revealed they would be coming back to the British capital to show their spring/summer 2013 collection. "[We] are delighted to be part of LFW again, it feels great to back on our own turf," Justin Thornton and Thea Bregazzi recently said in a statement.
While for British-born designers David Neville and Marcus Wainwright of Rag & Bone, the decision to show at LFW after spending over a decade in New York, will also be like returning home. "We are thrilled to finally open a store in London. It's exciting to present a collection for the first time in our hometown and for it to take place in our own store feels really special," said Neville.
