LONDON FASHION WEEK SHOW REPORTWhat's on
The whirlwind of Fashion Month may still be far from over, but the dust from LFW has only just settled.
This season we saw everything from rising designers such as Molly Goddard and Preen by Thornton Bregazzi, to classic collections exhibited at Burberry and JW Anderson who noted floral prints and an A-list front row.
Here is our round-up of the key talking points from this season’s London Fashion Week.
BLONDES HAD MORE FUN AT BURBERRY
One year after taking the reins at Burberry following the departure of Christopher Bailey as creative director, Riccardo Tisci expanded on his nascent vision for the heritage British brand at London Fashion Week.
This season Burberry boasted a supermodel-studded line-up, which included a blonde Kendall Jenner, the Hadid sisters, Irina Shayk and Agyness Deyn (in her first runway appearance in seven years), for their ‘Evolution’ line.
It was a collection that offered something for everyone from the traditionalists to the fashion avant-garde and the glamorous red-carpet star and Tisci noted that:
This is a collection inspired by our past and dedicated to our future. It’s the evolution of our Burberry kingdom.
WOMEN IN MOTION AT VICTORIA BECKHAM
For Victoria, this season wasn’t just about the clothes but also the makeup, as she launched her new makeup range and aim to target the wellness market.
She described how for this new direction, she wanted her products to be “active and effective, but clean and kind.” Responding to the current audience appetite.
The collection on the catwalk however was stronger than ever, channelling the 1970s bourgeois-chic aesthetic currently in vogue but with an added hit of juicy, vibrant colour.
SIGNATURE STYLES BY MOLLY GODDARD
You maybe surprised to see an upcoming brand create such noise during London Fashion Week, given the staple schedule for On-Duty shows, but it’s safe to say that Molly Goddard is definitely the British designer to watch from this season.
She’s known for her infamous tulle dress, which was featured on the BBC3 programme shows her stylistic versatility by introducing new fabrics and constructions.
Last season the designer embraced the assassin’s influence full throttle, showing 100 yards of magenta in a gown that has since been Instagrammed ad infinitum. This season, it was clear that Goddard was seeking to rid herself of her Killing Eve shackles, establishing strong anticipation and excitement for what’s next.
