It’s fashion month and London Fashion Week is the next instalment in the month’s busy calendar. With looks put together from hotly anticipated CSM alum, to LVMH prize winners, there are lots of events to keep in your diary. This year, the British Fashion Council has partnered with TikTok again in their ongoing initiative: NEWGEN, which supports the very best emerging talent and aims to build global, high end fashion brands of the future. Designers have been carefully identified by their creativity, strong design aesthetic and point of difference. TikTok have even facilitated their own showspace for the week to showcase this emerging talent.

Here’s a roundup of the talent you can’t miss this week, including both NEWGEN designers and designers who will be showing independently :

SUPRIYA LELE
With Lele’s work deeply rooted in her own cross-cultural point of view, she examines her Indian heritage and British cultural identity. She has already gathered a cult following in both the fashion and celebrity worlds, with stars such as Rihanna, Bella Hadid and Ariana Grande spotted in the designs. On the runway, look out for her use of colours, textures and fabrics twigged with Helmut Lang–era minimalism. Supriya Lele shows on the 20th September, 9am BST.

STEFAN COOKE
Hailed as John Galliano’s protégé, Cooke designs are subversive, youthful pieces that are inspired by modern art and urban subcultures. Committed to an eco-conscious mantra, Cooke shares a passion for upcycling and deconstructing garments. Look out for extreme silhouettes and clusters of high-fashion badges. Cooke also shows on the 20th September, at 1pm BST.

SAUL NASH
Bridging the gap between luxury menswear & activewear, Saul Nash produces unique contemporary technical garments doused with 80s nostalgia. Quickly becoming one of the most exciting names in sportswear, Nash focuses on the body and functionality; refreshing the usually mundane and transforming it with subtle embellishment. Catch Nash showing in the TikTok showspace on the 17th September at 10am BST.

NENSI DOJAKA
Nensi Dojaka, recent LVMH prize winner’s much-anticipated LFW show is coming on the 17th (4pm BST). Dojaka’s luxury womenswear line encapsulates the essence of modern female nature. Expect to see layers of mesh fabrics creating the illusion of texture, shadow, depth and volume. Dojaka’s signature strappy mesh has propelled her to fame and her rise to stardom shows no signs of slowing down.
