Inside the International Fashion Showcase at Somerset House

International Fashion Showcase returned to Somerset House this week, featuring a series of specially commissioned and curated fashion installations including works by emerging international designers from 28 countries. Created by the British Council and British Fashion Council and Mercedes-Benz, the International Fashion Showcase is a key part of London Fashion Week's public programme. The theme of this year’s exhibition was Local/Global.
