The official London Fashion Week schedule is out, with more than few notable changes from seasons past. 

Alexander McQueen will return to London to show its fall 2016 collection on Feb. 21. The brand has been showing in Paris since the spring 2002 collection, after the late McQueen partnered with the Gucci Group. According to an announcement from the British Fashion Council, the location change will only last one season. 

Mulberry is also returning to the London runway after taking a break from the format following Emma Hill's departure in 2013. The label's last true runway show was held for the spring 2014 collection. Former Céline head accessory designer Johnny Coca was announced as Hill's replacement a year ago, but he didn't actually arrive at the brand until July. Mulberry is slated to show on Feb. 21 as well.

And last but not least, Charlotte Olympia will stage its first-ever runway show. The footwear and accessories brand is designed by Charlotte Dellal, who often throws posh dinners to celebrate her collections. She's on the schedule for Feb. 19. 

This news out of London follows an announcement on Tuesday that Jonathan Saunders is shuttering his eponymous label. WWD also reported that Thomas Tait, who won the inaugural LVMH Prize in 2014, is dropping off the runway roster and scheduling appointments with press and buyers instead.
