product across ready-to-wear, party wear, loungewear, lingerie, and

footwear.

Amazon Fashion Europe, said in a statement: “We admire the work

that the British Fashion Council is doing to support designers during

the current crisis and are thrilled to be able to extend our services to

some of the most exciting UK designers, introducing them to new

audiences and supporting with logistics.

time through Amazon Fashion’s new London Fashion Week digital

storefront, supporting both household names and independent
