Marking its 3rd year, the annual London Queer Fashion Show gives visibility to new talent and helps to break down gender norms in fashion.

This Friday, London’s most diverse and inclusive fashion show returns to the V&A Museum of Childhood in East London.

The London Queer Fashion Show stage is home to established and emerging fashion designers and is the show within season to spot new queer talent. The purpose of the show is to express all identities in order for every individual to be recognised and acknowledged.

With dancers, voguers, hula hoop acts, the evening is full of surprises, live and electric energy to split and divide to mainstream catwalks whilst championing up and coming queer designers, with queer models.

Designers for the 2019 show consist of: Gzell, Ellise Lawrence, Plus Equals, Duygu, Insantible Lust, Sophie Cochevelou, Paula Herrera, Vanessa Nicholson, Annam, and The Avenue.

This year the event will be hosted by Ru Paul’s Drag Race and Celebrity Big Brother star x, and walking the stage are models of all identities. From Tess Holiday, Rain Dove and Saara Aalto to leaders and influencers from London’s community like Jamie Windust, Stefan Howste, Kenny Jones, Asttina Mandella, Char Bailey, Helen Scott and Jason Kwan, this event is championing gender-fluid fashion and inclusivity to the core.

Founder of London Queer Fashion Show, Robyn Exton, comments:

“The London Queer Fashion Show is completely unique – we’re bringing together the phenomenal power of both the fashion and queer communities in an explosive experience. This is what real representation and inclusivity should look like, not the tokenism we’re seeing far too often. A stage for all those who exist in our community, real identities, real voices and real people.”

Gates open at 6.30pm for drinks and entertainment at V&A Museum of Childhood forecourt, with doors to the venue open at 7.30pm, where attendees can explore the Selling Floor with over 20 LGBTQ+ vendors.

Show begins at 8.30pm. Tickets are available via Eventbrite.
