From February 9-11, at Olympia London, the new Pure London Runway stage will provide a dedicated space for catwalks, styling sessions and AW20/21 trends.

Meanwhile, the Nomad Stage and Origin Stage will be host to some of fashion's biggest names discussing everything from sustainability to social media.

As part of its commitment to the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals, the content programme kicks off on February 9, on the Nomad Stage with Kerry Bannigan from Conscious Fashion Campaign and Kirsty McGregor, editor of Drapers Magazine for The Big Conversation 2020 - The Decade of Action. With tens of thousands of people pledging to make a collective change, Kerry and Kirsty reflect on the success of driving the message around the UN Sustainable Development Goals campaign, how to encourage more businesses to make positive steps to change, and how consumers join that journey.

Next up, TV presenter and content creator Kate Thornton will talk to Lauretta Roberts, editor of The.Industry about Authenticity: Not Just a Fashion Buzz Word. Kate will discuss how she has navigated her newest design collaboration with Bibi Bijoux, how their partnership evolved, how important it was to be involved in the creative collaboration, but most importantly how they have built a line that is authentic to her and connects with customers.

At 3.30pm, the Keynote Conversation features Dame Zandra Rhodes. Celebrating her Jubilee, Rhodes will talk about the ups and downs of continuing to thrive in the fashion world. With fascinating insights and a fair few interesting stories over the years this candid chat with one of the fashion world’s most iconic designers is not to be missed.
