Joining the likes of Richard Nicoll and Marios Schwab, Ostwald Helgason has also announced a break from London Fashion Week (LFW) for the Autumn/Winter 15 season. Designer duo Susanne Ostwald and Ingvar Helgason (pictured above) used New York Fashion Week (NYFW) to showcase their creations in the past, but announced last month that they would return to the UK capital's LFW where their studio is based.

However, on Friday, Ostwald and Helgason announced their decision to cancel their scheduled LFW – which was set to take place on February 24 – explaining that they decided to skip the AW15 showcase “in order to focus on the development of the brand and its core collection.”

A spokesperson for the label said that the AW15 collection would still be created and sold, but there would be no show: “It was quite a tough decision, but they decided the best move was to focus on building the brand from the inside.” 

The duo, who were honoured on the LVMH Young Fashion Designer Prize shortlist in 2014, plan to resume their presence on the LFW calendar for Spring/Summer 16.
