Dubai regular and designer extraordinaire Roland Mouret will return to London Fashion Week next year, after years of having shown in Paris.
The French designer is making the move to coincide with the 20th anniversary of his brand, and will show both his A/W17 and S/S18 shows in the British capital. His first show was held in London in 2000, and the brand has grown tenfold since then.
Mouret, who opened his first store in the region in Dubai Mall last year and recently spoke to Bazaar about his Resort 2017 collection, explained the reason for the move to Business of Fashion, saying, "I love that London is my creative home and over half of my manufacturing base is in Britain - I wouldn't be able to do what I do anywhere else other than London. London is my home, it's where my brand has its heart and I'm excited to celebrate such an important milestone here."
