LONDON, England – 18th September 2020 – Following news earlier this year that the world’s largest display of BA Fashion Talent would have to be cancelled, Samsung KX intervened by offering an online platform for the Foundation to showcase the inspiring work of the Graduate Fashion Innovation Award 2020. Months on, it’s excited to finally bring the series to life at its hub of innovation.
An exhibition at the heart
Central to the activity, Samsung KX will be hosting a four-day public exhibition of inspiring student designs throughout London Fashion Week (17th –20th September), showcased by a mix of stylishly dressed mannequins and virtual displays via the latest Galaxy Tab S7 tablet. This will be amplified with an exclusive range of university content projected across Samsung’s latest innovations, including the ground-breaking Sero QLED 4K TV which stylishly rotates between landscape and portrait to maximise the viewing experience. Guests are invited to visit the exhibition within the opening hours of 11am – 7pm.
Amplifying with creative workshops
Alongside this, the exhibition will be accompanied by a series of exciting, trend-led workshops that celebrate creativity and the impact of technology within the industry. From uncovering the stories behind celebrity outfits to learning how to market businesses in style, the sessions will be hosted by leading fashion thought leaders and open for local communities to enjoy.
