On Friday, February 16, the graduating womenswear and menswear students of the master programme in fashion design technology at London College of Fashion (LCF), University of the Arts London (UAL), presented their collections on the runway of London Fashion Week (LFW) autumn/winter 2024.

This presentation of this year’s LCF graduating class of master students took place at the college’s brand new East Bank campus, located in London’s Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, which made its debut this season as an official LFW venue.

The fashion show took place as an invite-only event for industry professionals and the press as part of the official London Fashion Week AW24 calendar. The designs created by the master students specialising in womenswear were presented in a live showroom within the new building of LCF’s East Bank Campus.
