Lee will be the opening show for the week in the courtyard of the Somerset House at 9 a.m. on February 14th, followed by Mazhar’s showing at 4 p.m. on the same day and at the same locale, while Webster will be showing her shoe collection in Convent Garden on February 16th.

Created in 2009, Fashion Forward gets awarded to designers who’ve completed the BFC’s NewGen program. The selected designers are chosen by a panel of industry pros, including Caroline Issa, Harvey Nichols alum (and recently-minted Mytheresa.com creative director) Paula Reed, and the BFC’s chief exec, Caroline Rush. Previous recipients of the award have included the likes of Christopher Kane, Giles Deacon, Jonathan Saunders, Louise Goldin, Marios Schwab, Erdem Moralioglu, and Roksanda Ilincic.
