Established and emerging fashion talent from across the Commonwealth’s 53 countries showcase the power and potential of artisan fashion skills to deliver new networks, trade links and highlight sustainability
For the first time, The Commonwealth comes together to showcase a wealth of design and artisan fashion talent across its 53 countries. Selected design talent includes major names such as Karen Walker representing New Zealand, Bibi Russell representing Bangladesh and Burberry and Stella McCartney representing the UK.
Participating designers and artisans collectively represented all 53 commonwealth member countries in a major new initiative ahead of the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting in London this April. The ‘looks’ created through the Fashion Exchange were showcased at a special reception at Buckingham Palace during London Fashion Week in February.
