Fashion Month is definitely here! From elaborate hairstyles to make-up creations out of this world, London Fashion Week never has a shortage of unmissable beauty looks, and this year was no different. Here are the top 3 looks on the London Fashion Week runway.
The collection took place inside a former east London court, Old Sessions House. With its fashionably stripped-back walls, lavish chandeliers and stately central staircase, Burberry re-embraced its heritage check, and all types of plaid, for their upcoming collection.
Christopher Bailey is the President and Chief Creative Officer of British luxury fashion brand, Burberry. He was describing his upbeat collection as a kooky, preppy, punk take on the brand and an exhibition of 20th-century British social portraiture called “Here We Are,” that will run until Oct. 1 in the show space.
With its youthful, punk flair, the collection was a departure for the usually luxed-up Burberry, what with the worn-in graffiti-ed trenches, neat tartan trousers and riding coats and little skirts made from repurposed military jackets.
Canada born designer Erdem Moralioglu has turned the Old Selfridges Hotel into a glamorous speakeasy for his London Fashion Week show.
The fashion house named Erdem displayed glamorous, full-length evening gowns with full-length gloves and sparkly accessories. Many had floral themes and remarkable detailing, adding to the show’s exuberance and opulence.
While many designers are showing more and more skin, Erdem opts for a subtle celebration of feminine beauty. There were some sheer and lacy outfits, but most were more modest, with either high necklines or sweetheart ones.
- VERSUS VERSACE
The diffusion line of Italian luxury brand Versace, Versus is best known for its younger, cooler-than-cool approach to fashion and this season was no different.
Bound by youth, sexiness, defiance and fun, artistic director Donatella Versace said that this season was all about bravery and pleasure.
The womenswear was made up of bikinis worn as streetwear, belted polo dresses with Versus lion head buttons and mini-dresses in bright, vivid colours. But, perhaps the most Versace of them all was an oversized mesh string vest worn by It girl and model of the moment, Adwoa Aboah.
In true style, every piece made a statement, imbuing the brand’s exuberant and glamorous aesthetic into everything from fringed accessories and glitter logos to studded cowboy panels.
