Just a few weeks after striking gold with the successful 2012 Olympic Games bid, London’s streets are set to gleam again next week, this time in silver, as Renault, that most daring of car manufacturers, provides a glittering fleet of thirty platinum Grand Espaces, its flagship model, to chauffeur around the movers and shakers of the fashion world in its role as Official Car Supplier to London Fashion Week, 18-22 September 2005. The general public are also able to visit the exhibition between 22-25 September and even have the opportunity to buy some of the latest design samples.
This bi-annual showcase of cutting-edge design is indisputably one of the capital's premier events, attracting an international audience of key style leaders, retailers and press. During the five-day event at The Natural History Museum in elegant Kensington, over 50 designers will present their Spring/Summer 2006 collections on the catwalk, with a further 170 showcasing their latest fashions at The Exhibition at the same venue.
With over 200 of the world’s top designers exhibiting throughout the week, ranging from world-famous names like Paul Smith and Julien MacDonald, to promising young talent, journalists and fashion buyers face a demanding schedule of fashion shows and launches at the main exhibition centre and other prestigious locations throughout the capital. However, the stress and strain of the hectic week should be eased by the luxurious Espaces as VIPs travel around London in serene comfort between each venue.
Speaking of the company’s support of London Fashion Week, Mandy Hopkins, Public Relations Manager, Renault UK, said, "Renault has always been a company synonymous with style and innovative design, so we’re delighted to be sponsoring this important event for the third consecutive year. We’re heavily involved in the arts and culture scene each year, supporting many high-profile shows such as the Edinburgh International Festival and Chelsea Flower Show, with our Grand Espaces tailor-made for such prestigious occasions."
