"This season we will be highlighting beauty and creativity"
Millennium Gloucester Hotel London will host the spectacular House of iKons event during London Fashion Week on February 16 and 17, 2019.
Established by Savita Kaye under Lady Production, the event, which promotes global fashion talent successfully enters its fifth year.
House of iKons February 2019 will concentrate on men’s, women’s and kids fashion as well as showcasing SexyBack to Curves.
Ever since launching in 2014, the event has grown from strength to strength. Savita and her team continue to raise the bar with each year passing.
In 2018, House of iKons became the first UK brand to introduce robots on the catwalk.
Supporting emerging talent, the event also provided a valuable opportunity to a young 13-year-old designer who produced bespoke pieces, which gained media attention around the world.
DESIblitz.com presents more insight into the 2019 spring event, along with highlighting some of the different designers and segments during the two days:
House of iKons February 2019
The early 2019 edition of the event will bring the world of fashion and creativity together under one roof.
House of iKons once again will support designers and brands from across the globe. This will give them a unique platform for maximum exposure, elevating them to the next level.
Many of the boutiques and departmental stores from around the world house some of the designs that will be on show during the two days.
Several designers that will be in attendance have a history of consulting some of the top celebrities on red carpet events, music gigs and videos.
Beyonce, Jlo, Paris Hilton and Michelle Obama are a few who have been dressed by the iKons.
Speaking about the forthcoming event CEO Savita Kaye says:
“This season we will be highlighting beauty and creativity not just in design and music but for all regardless of ethnicity, size, shape and sexual orientation.
“As everyone has the right to feel and look good, feel confident about who they are in the here and now.”
“Everyone has that right and we will continue to push boundaries and stereotypes… we are still a small drop in this big ocean.
“But we will continue to create a storm and bring beauty and creativity to whoever you are, where ever you are, from around the world.”
In 2019, for the first time, House of iKons introduces plus-size models. Also, transgender models will be at the forefront.
The whole event will offer a variety for everyone’s needs. Everyone will find something to their taste, ranging from vintage, retro, traditional to contemporary styles and textures.
At the same time, all the brands that will be on show are stylistically authentic.
Avalon Hair and Beauty is the sponsor of the event, while DESIblitz.com is a key media partner, as it has been since the inauguration of the show.
The combination of all the best creations will try to give a sensational fashion feel to those attending, including VIP guests and the general public.
