Tues March 22: The London Showrooms in NYC
Watch out, the Brits are abroad! Having returned from Paris, the next stop on tour is NYC for the third consecutive season with The Soho Grand Hotel hosting The London Showrooms. A combination of emerging designers from the BFC New Gen, New Gen Men and CFE schemes are uniting to present their collections and be on hand to provide a face to the name for personal introduction. Here Barbara Grispini has kindly shared her photos from the penthouse on the day of the opening reception held by Sarah Mower. Barbara is a star from the team at The BFC who helps seek out talent and then nurture the participants through the support system once on board. It looks like she is literally embracing the new designers by deviating from her trademark black silhouette with some op-art Louise Gray Pollini polka dot boots! Brilliant!
