London Fashion Week
Goodbye New York, Hello London. From the American runway to The Great British catwalk designers are flooding to London with their striking fashion pieces from near and far.
LFW brings an extraordinary amount of creativity to the public’s eye, paving the way for the new season of fashion. Every fashion week a designer’s aim is to bring their unique style to one of the fashion capitals of the world. London Fashion Week gives brands and designers the chance to raise their profile and display their collections to a huge, captive audience.
First to Feature in LFW was BORA AKSU, a Turkish designer who, at 11am brought his AW18 collection to London Fashion Week. Catching people’s eyes with his exquisite designs he managed to turn many fashion heads and designers Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabanna purchased pieces as part of costume designs for stars like Ellie Goulding, Rita Ora, Dove Cameron and Erin O’Connor. Bora’s career is an inspiration to many designers with his signature style being easy to spot.
Dramatic and bold, Burberry took their new collection to the colour limits and didn’t miss a beat with their outstanding selection. This LFW many stars were photographed in a piece from the Burberry collection. From Skepta and Zendaya to Liam and Gene Gallagher Burberry had everyone’s attention.
Cara Delevingne stormed down the catwalk, impossible to miss in her colourful coat made up of emerald green, scarlet, tangerine, sapphire blue and canary yellow, colours inspired by the LGBTQ flag. Cara was the leading lady for Burberry at LFW and was the first model to open the show. Sitting in the front row were Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell who began their iconic modelling careers as teenagers.
A wide range of celebrities were spotted at LFW including Alexa Chung who attended the House of Holland, Burberry, Simone Rocha, JW Anderson and Erdems London shows.
