London Fashion Week ran from 16 of February and ended today. As usual the event showcased well-established brands alongside new labels. This particularly special year was a first for some designers and the last for others. Here are our highlights.
1. The Innovator – Central Saint Martins MA
From the Central Saint Martin School, 19 brilliant designers showcased at the London Fashion Week. However one name stood out Edwin Monhey. The New York designer featured in his runway the infamous condom dress and ‘Trumpettos’ rubber stilettos designed to look like…. Donald Trump.
2. Last but not least – Burberry
Saturday evening saw Christopher Bailey’s final runway show for Burberry. The designer is stepping down after 17 years at the label (as chief creative designer, then CEO). It was a memorable last show from the ground-breaking designer who reinvented Burberry.
3. The contemporary – Delpozo
Spanish label Delpozo is staging its debut London show this week, having been New York-based for the last five years. For his first runway in London Delpozo enlightened us with bright colours, volume and contemporary silhouettes.
4. Experimental forms – Gareth Pugh
The english designer from the Central Saint Martins School is known to his approach to redefining modern luxury. The Fall 18 collection could be described as wearable sculpture, experimental forms and volumes. A very dark universe that we’d love to embark on.
5. Modern Femininity – Rejina Pyo
Rejina Pyo is a Korean born fashion designer based in London. The designer graduated from Central Saint Martins offered us a romantic journey. The Fall collection inspired by modern art and architecture created an elegant and modern silhouette. Definitely my coup de coeur of the London Fashion Week.
