Gareth Pugh’s label celebrates its 10-year anniversary and what better way to get the party started than to return to its roots? The designer has announced that he will return to London to stage his Fall 2015 collection.
Pugh usually presents in Paris and last season showed in New York City. He is scheduled to show his latest in London on February 21, and says he plans to stage future shows in the city in the following seasons. “London is where everything began for me,” Pugh said. “My creative family is here, our story is here. So I’m thrilled to acknowledge such an important milestone on home ground. At heart this is a creative decision – it feels timely and true to the spirit of the work.”
Pugh stresses that although he’s shown in different cities, London will always be home. “I never really left London — I’ve lived and worked here forever, and there was always going to be a time when I came back.” We’re sure Longon will be happy to have him back, too!
