Fashion Press Week AW11 dates announced

Fashion Press Week, in partnership with media resource DIARY, will be taking place 18-19 May at One Marylebone, 1 Marylebone Road, London NW1 4AQ. The event will showcase the AW11 collection launches from a variety of leading retailers and designer brands with a number of features lined up at the event. Brands include Marc Cain, Austin Reed and Thomas Sabo among many others.

Following November’s debut show, international law firm Mishcon de Reya will again be sponsoring a gallery supporting emerging and ethical brands under the Fashion Discovered and Fashion Fair brands. This season Mishcon de Reya, in association with Fashion Business Club, launched a competition to search for designers who fall under the Fashion Discovered and Fashion Fair guidelines to offer complimentary space within the event as well as chance to win a year’s mentoring from a wealth of fashion, media and legal experts including online access to PR – an invaluable PR tool offering industry contacts, dates and news. Shortlisted brands include Ivana Basilotta, Hemyca and Viking Wong. In addition, to further support their sponsorship at Fashion Press Week, Mishcon de Reya will be hosting Cafe Legal, a pop-up coffee shop at the event where brand directors and CEO’s can meet with the legal team to discuss matters ranging from intellectual property, real estate, corporate issues and employment law.
