As a female-founded community, supporting mostly female designers, LDC aims to empower women, not only by giving our design partners a platform to showcase their products, but also by creating a community for women in all industries to meet, share their experiences and build each other up. To facilitate and celebrate this empowering community, this London Fashion Week, LDC will launch its first networking event for female empowerers and entrepreneurs to unite, network and engage on the evening of Monday 19th February in the heart of Covent Garden. Sponsored by Dannoff vodka and Karma Cola, the event – Female Empowerers & Entrepreneurs: Women in Business Networking & Presentations – will run alongside the concept store, giving guests an opportunity meet the designers behind the brands, enjoy exclusive offers and network with fellow women in business, making LDC an experience-led event like no other.
