The highly anticipated Dessous London trade show launched last week, showcasing a selection of the best established, new and up-and-coming labels. Visitors to the show immediately praised the choice of venue, Carousel on Baker Street, for its modern, sunlight infused feel, as well as the brand mix. The showroom event was curated to reflect both established names and new and up and coming brands, and recent graduates from De Montfort University’s Contour Course also had a chance to showcase their final collections to the industry at Dessous London.
At the close of day 1 the packed venue played host to a cocktail party attended by some of the industry’s most important and influential buyers, journalists and bloggers. Sponsored by German brand, Lascana, delicious canapés and cocktails were catered by Carousel and entertainment came in the form of Beau Rocks, a couturier and burlesque dancer extraordinaire, who wore Lascana lingerie beneath her costume. DJ Annie Oh provided the music and guests were illustrated by Kristina Starkina.
