For the first time, established and emerging fashion talent from across the Commonwealth’s 52 countries showcase the power and potential of artisan fashion skills to deliver new networks, trade links and highlight sustainability. 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 will collectively represent all 52 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 will be showcased at a special reception at Buckingham Palace during London Fashion Week in February before moving to a public exhibition at Australia House and various other London locations. The Commonwealth Fashion Exchange is an ambitious project created and managed by Eco-Age, with support of the Commonwealth Fashion Council and the British Fashion Council, and in partnership with Swarovski, The Woolmark Company and Matchesfashion.com who will launch an edited collection in September.
