For the AW16 collections, the Designer Showrooms will feature 45 designers who are showing here for the first time. Among them are knitwear designer Caitlin Charles-Jones, who was tipped as one of Vogue Talents’ ‘Ones to Watch’, and is a part of Boden’s Future British scheme in partnership with the BFC; Alexander McQueen alumnus Samuel Dougal; Rok Hwang, a former ready-to-wear designer at Céline; and Leanne Claxton, who trained under Christian Lacroix.

NEWGEN will have its own installation in the showrooms, as well as a pop-up showroom for this season’s NEWGEN designers: Ashley Williams, Claire Barrow, Danielle Romeril, Faustine Steinmetz, Marta Jakubowski, Molly Goddard, Ryan Lo and Sadie Williams. NEWGEN's 'One-To-Watch' this season is Roberta Einer, who will present the installation in the Designer Showrooms.
