Sophia Webster to unveil her exclusive London Fashion Weekend tote bag design

The British Fashion Council has commissioned luxury footwear maestro Sophia Webster to design a limited edition tote bag especially for London Fashion Weekend this coming September.

Webster is renowned for her love of bold colour and playful motifs, and her LFW tote stays true to this aesthetic. Her design features a peacock feather pattern printed on a bubblegum pink canvas background and is inspired by her SS17 collection.

As this year’s winner of the coveted BFC/ Vogue Designer Fashion Fund, Webster seems like a natural choice for the task, and the move follows the launch of her eponymous handbag line.

Caroline Rush, Chief Executive of the British Fashion Council says:

"Sophia’s beautiful designs perfectly capture British creativity and are the perfect match for London Fashion Weekend. It has been great to work with Sophia on the tote bags for this season and I look forward to seeing them being used all over London and further afield!"

The tote bags will be given to consumers who purchase Silver, Gold and Luxe ticket packages for the event that runs from 22-26 September, where Webster will also take part in a talk alongside industry titans French Sole, Preen, Linda Farrow, Thornton Bregazzzi and Lucy Choi.
