And so the most anticipated event in the UK fashion industry awaits us this September, London Fashion Week – five days full of catwalks, showrooms and parties from September 12 to 16.
These five reasons are why LFW rocks...
It’s our very own
It’s on our own turf, giving us the chance to showcase raw British talent. British designers such as Burberry, Vivienne Westwood and Stella McCartney will all be displaying their creative ready to wear collections this autumn. And we just can’t wait to see the new cutting edge pieces being carried gracefully along the runway.
In February, Christopher Bailey took us into the Bohemian world of patterned prints, water-coloured silhouette designs and antique lace. Being at the forefront of British Fashion, the Burberry Show and collection is well anticipated. We can’t predict what will be exhibited, all we know is that it will be magnificent.
As well as displaying wonderfully British fashion, London Fashion Week is an opportunity to celebrate diversity and the newer names.
Huishan Zang, a graduate of Central Saint Martins, inspires us with his culturally connected look while staying close to western modernity.
He worked for Dior for a year and launched his collection just after graduation.
His initial inspiration for his AW14 collection came from the landscapes of China
It’s not only the clothes we’re awaiting! Amanda Gerbassi will be showing her bold collection of fine gemstone jewellery with the “quadrant ring” as her signature piece. Her line was inspired by Le Corbusier’s Purist Period where he focused on geometrical shapes contributing to her minimalistic signature.
The geometrical use of different shapes such as circles, rectangles, cylinders and straight lines makes each piece boldly unique and eye-catching.
