Located on the premises of fashion trade shows D&A and Capsule, On/Off will take place from September 30 to October 2. By hosting catwalk shows and showrooms, On/Off will aim to present the new wave of British talent next to more established names such as Pam Hogg (catwalk on October 1st at 6:15pm) and Charlie Le Mindu (catwalk on September 30th at 12:30pm). This will be their first “official” appearance in the French capital. The organisers have also selected the works of Hasan Hejazi, Kehao and Zeynep Tosun to present at the catwalk show, while Hasan Hejazi, Kehao and Zeynep Tosun will exhibit their collections in the showroom.

Founded in 2003 by Lee Lapthorne, On/Off is renowned for discovering emerging talent, having been the first to market debuting designers such as Gareth Pugh, Hannah Marshall, Aminaka Wilmont, Yang Du, Peter Pilotto, Richard Sorger, Mark Fast, Louise Amstrup, Osman, Derek Lawlor, Kaviar Gauche, Emilio de la Morena, Tim Soar and JW Anderson. More than 200 designers have been showcased by this independent platform, which has received a lot of promotion in the UK.
