…plus all the other news you missed this week, including the V&A’s new African fashion exhibition, and a sneak-peek at Kim Jones’ first-ever Fendi show
ICYMI, this week’s very virtual AW21 fashion season was in full swing – with Raf Simons making his menswear debut at Prada, and Fendi presenting its latest collection, which this time around was plastered with scribbles by The Great British Bake Off’s Noel Fielding.
