International Fashion Showcase

The International Fashion Showcase (IFS) nurtures and presents work from the most exciting fashion talent from around the world.
Working in partnership, British Council, British Fashion Council, London College of Fashion and Somerset House provide a tailored programme for 16 emerging international designers, including a business development programme lead by London College of Fashion and a creative residency within Somerset House Studios in London.
IFS will culminate with a free public exhibition during London Fashion Week in February 2019 at Somerset House, showcasing the work developed by the designers in a compelling series of installations exploring urgent issues and new ideas that are shaping fashion globally.
With support from the British Bangladesh Fashion Council, following a rigorous selection process, the first designer of Bangladeshi origin to participate in IFS and therefore showcase at London Fashion Week is Rahemur Rahman.

Rahemur Rahman is a menswear designer who graduated from the prestigious Central Saint Martins BA Fashion pathway, he has gone onto have a colourful career in fashion and has helped merge the many industries that work within the sector. In his creative direction, he has worked to help bring together the international modest fashion world and western fashion, simultaneously working on styling and creating imagery for fashion brands and using fashion to help promote a more inclusive diverse ideology.

Having taken a break from designing he is planning to use the platform of International Fashion Showcase to relaunch his menswear collection. In this body of work, he will not only visually challenge fashion conventions but use this platform to participate in conversations about sustainability, inclusivity, and diversity.
Rahemur Rahman endeavours to be a representative in a new era of emerging designers, a strong voice where others cannot be heard, in a world that is sometimes reluctant to listen.
