Scoop London is a brand new edition of Scoop taking place during London Fashion Week SS16.
With London Fashion Week taking up residence at its new home of Brewer Street Car Park in the heart of Soho from the 18th to the 22nd September and Scoop London running at the Saatchi Gallery in Chelsea from the 20th to the 22nd September, organisers will be working together on both transport and fast-track entry to both events as all eyes turn to one of the world’s most exciting fashion destinations.
All accredited buyers registered for Scoop London, as well as for the established August edition of Scoop, will be approved for entry to the Designer Showrooms of London Fashion Week. Buyers can simply show their Scoop badge and a business card at the entrance desk to be fast-tracked into the Designer Showrooms of London Fashion Week. Likewise, all London Fashion Week’s accredited buyers can automatically gain fast-track entry into the brand new Scoop London show, which will feature a hand-picked selection of UK and international names including leading collections showing in the UK for the very first time.
Buyers will also be able to take advantage of free transport between the two venues, with a regular shuttle service running between Soho and the Saatchi Gallery on King’s Road, linking two of London’s most iconic locations associated for decades with the leading British fashion and design.
Karen Radley, founder and managing director of Scoop International Fashion Shows, says, “SS16 is a very exciting time for us as we launch our brand new show, Scoop London. We are thrilled to be working with London Fashion Week – the collaboration is the perfect platform to showcase an unmissable selection of contemporary and emerging designers from the UK and across the globe.”
Caroline Rush, CEO of The British Fashion Council comments: “We are delighted that Scoop London will take place during London Fashion Week SS16, as it’s the first time both trade shows will coincide. From Chelsea to Soho our aim is to be able to offer all designers the best buyers, press and industry professionals consolidating London’s position as the most vibrant and innovative fashion capital in the world.”
Scoop London will have a completely different line-up of labels to London Fashion Week, featuring over 150 international designer collections and emerging British designers.
