Legendary menswear designer Raf Simons chose Printworks to stage his first ever show in the UK
The presentation took aim at the hierarchies and formality of fashion week, with a boldly minimal collection that sang in the raw aesthetics of the former printing factory. The space lent its raw aesthetic to the designer’s very first show in London and set the stage for a new minimalist, grown-up approach to dressing.

Raf Simons SS23
Simons chose the post-industrial venue because he wanted to capture the spirit of the city. Rather than set up as a formal catwalk, the space was dressed for a party, with no seating plan and no way of distinguishing between the guests. The capacity of Printworks meant that Simons was able to open up the show to a more diverse crowd: more than 800 guests attended, ranging from fashion industry royalty to fashion students, artists and curators and gallerists visiting for Frieze.
