On|Off the Independent Global Fashion Showcase
On|Off was created in 2003 by Lee Lapthorne to bridge the gap between on and off schedule designers, becoming the first of its kind.
Over the past 17 seasons, On|Off has attracted some of the most exciting international fashion designers including: Peter Pilotto, Pam Hogg, Louise Gray, Gareth Pugh, Aminaka Wilmont, Gardem, Charlie Le Mindu, Osman, JW Anderson, Mark Fast and Yang Du. On|Off in most cases offered these designers their first international platform, giving them the opportunity to professionally promote their creativity on a global scale.
“I’ve always respected their taste in designers and think they have a completely unique vision, which is interesting and slightly subversive” - Katie Grand, Editor-in-Chief, Love Magazine
On|Off has not only supported fashion designers for the past 9 years but also worked with the best of pioneering creative talents in music, art, photography, film and technology becoming a collaborative platform across a variety of disciplines.
Currently new technology is advancing at super speed, and just when "the fashion industry at large" gets to grips with its use, a new development comes along. On|Off has accepted the challenge exploring new ways of thinking towards an even broader global experience, allowing the barriers between the major fashion capitals to be bridged.
