Fashion week in Stockholm barely had time to settle before the fashion world turns it’s attention to Sweden’s fourth largest city. London. London Fashion Week SS18 is here, and in celebration of the event, we have put together a guide to experiencing Swedish fashion at London Fashion Week in September 2017.
Burberry, Vivienne Westwood, and Swedish Fannie Schiavoni are some of the 100 labels hosted at London Fashion Week SS18. We have looked closer at three amazing brands representing Sweden in London.
Hargreaves Stockholm is an ethical fine jewelry brand that focuses on creating beautiful, wearable pieces and making those pieces as responsibly and ethically as possible.
Launched at Stockholm Fashion Week, January 2017, Hargreaves Stockholm is the culmination of many years of work and research. After nearly two decades in the fine jewelry industry it was felt that there had to be a way of producing beautiful pieces as responsibly as possible without compromising on ethics or quality – and so an exquisite brand was born.
Hargreaves Stockholm is not only proud to use Fairmined Ecological gold and silver, as well as the finest non-mined diamonds and sapphires, but also promotes sustainable ethical techniques, which offer the perfect blend of exceptional handicraft and computer technology.

Fannie Schiavoni is a London based womenswear label established in 2009 by Fannie Åkerblom. Born in Sweden, Fannie moved to London at the age of 18 to study tailoring at London College of Fashion, where she later progressed to the BA Fashion Design Womenswear course. Having completed a number of internships alongside her studies for designers including Hussein Chalayan and Giles Deacon, she then launched her first collection before graduating in spring 2009.
Browns Focus bought the eponymous collection and in the same year, she received the prestigious NEWGEN Award from the British Fashion Council. She continued to receive the award for three consecutive seasons.

London-based Swede Louise Körner made a splash on the Swedish fashion scene in 2016 with her collection Scandi Jungle, inspired by the Scandinavian forest industry. Scandi Jungle showed the world what Louise is all about and what unique carvings she will dress the most fashionable women of Europe in for years to come. In the same year, she appeared on Swedish Fashion Talents’ show during the SS17 fashion week.
For this year’s London Fashion Week she is hosting a pop-up shop in Islington.
