Selfridges to support new talent during LFW

During January, Selfridges Bright Young Things initiative has given 20 up and coming designers, including milliners, jewellers, illustrators and set designers, the opportunity to decorate windows with their latest collections, contact details and logo. Selfridges is continuing this collaboration further by offering the designers a platform in-store to show off their talent to coincide with London Fashion Week AW11. A schedule has been put together from 14-20 February (including LFW) with BYT hosting personal activities each day in the 3rd Central space in-store (See DIARYdates). Each of the Bright Young Things has also designed exclusive pieces for Selfridges, which will be sold in pop-up shops both in-store and online. Here is the schedule of events:
