Following the news of Queen Elizabeth II’s death at age 96 on Thursday, a slew of brands have begun to cancel or postpone their Spring 2023 runway shows at London Fashion Week. Luxury labels such as Burberry and Raf Simons have officially called off their showcases, on top of British retailers like Selfridges and Liberty closing their doors on Friday, Sept. 9 to commemorate the queen’s passing.

“We are deeply saddened by the devastating news of the death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II who has dedicated her life to serving her country, this her platinum jubilee year recognizes 70 years on the throne,” said the British Fashion Council (BFC) in an official statement provided to Fashionista on Friday. “The country will enter an official mourning period from today. This will coincide with London Fashion Week.”
