Working alongside the British Fashion Council, we commission carefully selected designers to create limited edition collections each season. Design Forum aims to provide a platform for exciting design talent by bringing exclusive, one-off collections which push the boundaries of fashion to the high street.

Since its launch in 2012, designers have included Georgia Hardinge, Julian J Smith, Tom Lipop, William Tempest, Eudon Choi, Katie Eary, Joseph Turvey, Liz Black, Baartmans & Siegel, Jean-Pierre Braganza, James Long, Zoë Jordan, Christopher Shannon and now Sibling and Lou Dalton.


The British Fashion Council Fashion Film initiative is a film festival developed and supported by us to showcase the work of up and coming designers. It provides a showcasing opportunity at London Fashion Week and London Collections Men.

An industry based panel curated by the BFC select the films from a mix of designers/brands to be shown alongside the River Island Design Forum film.

We are very pleased and excited to be supporting and developing film with the BFC. It’s an innovative and inspiring format which we belief offers brands and designers a unique opportunity to showcase their brand personality and collection.
