Speaking of the event, Amanda said, “London Fashion Week is iconic, it has been recognised throughout the world for decades and has launched the careers of some of the world’s greatest creatives; encouraging individuality and respected global brands in the UK industry. A plethora of UK kid’s brands have paved the way for the British kids market creating success stories in this rapidly growing industry.
