An alternative fashion week

London Fashion Week might be over, but wipe away your Swarovski-encrusted tears, preferably with a Hermès handkerchief, as the designers have just been announced for the Alternative Fashion Week.

Somewhat edgier than its haute couture cousin, the event will be held at Spitalfields market from 19-23 April and features collections from over 70 new talents. From Sini Moilanen’s wearable Cosmology-inspired designs to Beatrice Newman’s revealing crochet ensembles, it’s sure to showcase some of fashion’s most exciting new designers.

Check out some of the designs below…
