Top 10 Shows from London Fashion Week AW15

LFW AW15While London Fashion Week may have clashed this year with The Oscars, and was the reason Tom Ford took his show to LA, it once again showed why London keeps its edgy title across the fashion weeks. Pushing the boundaries and taking risks is something that London has been known for and this AW was no different.

Here are our top ten shows from London Fashion Week…

Julien Macdonald

Julien Macdonald AW15

Gothic, sexy and a little bit naughty, Julien Macdonald is back to his best. His AW15 catwalk creations have already been seen on Kim Kardashian and with these very wearable looks are sure to be seen on many other celbs too.

Christopher Kane

Christopher Kane AW15

Bold design, red hot shades and with sequins and racing green lurex, a nod back to the disco era (song More, More, More closing the show). Bondage style wrapping and electrifying prints featured in both dresses and coats giving the show a 50 Shades edge to the collection.

Sass & BideSass & Bide AW15

Celebrity favourite Sass & Bide went monochrome with black, white, creams and shades of grey. Leather and fur went hand-in-hand as Anthony Cuthbertson, for the Australian label, created a very urban street collection. It will be interesting to see the direction Cuthbertson takes the label now that the original designers have left and department store Myer is at the business helm.

Holly Fulton
Holly Fulton AW15

Retro, and girly with 40s silhouettes, frothy chiffon, silky slips and floral embellishment. Pastel shades were mixed with black, white and grey and texture was key in this latest collection. With a Holly Golightly feel, these are pieces that will take you straight from the club to the bedroom…

RoksandaRoksanda AW15

Bold patterning, bright autumnal colours and cinched waists gave this collection a retro feel though Ilincic said it was: “about feelings and emotion rather than any specific era or image.” Layering was key with warm shearling scarves, over coats, over jumpers, over dresses.

ErdemErdem AW15

Erdem’s rich tapestry of fabrics; printed silks and taffetas, punched leather and degrade coats which saw baroque prints merge into midnight wool made for a decadent collection.

Burberry ProrsumBurberry Prorsum AW15

Christopher Bailey seemed to be influenced by the relaxed hippy feel of the early 70s, apparent by his fringed loose ponchos, patchwork peasant dresses, floral autumnal prints and long suede coats.

IssaIssa AW15

In this debut collection by Jamie O’Hare, we can see a nod to Daniella Helayel’s original styling for Issa and continuity with Blue Farrier’s designing while bringing in his own influences. Plunging necklines and cinched in waists made it a beautifully feminine collection with very wearable patterns.

JosephJoseph AW15

Slouching, luxe and touchable fabrics made the Joseph collection very desirable for Autumn Winter. Soft cashmeres, lambswool, shearling and chiffon in soft neutral shade are perfect for cocooning against the cold weather of an arctic winter.

And… Tom Ford in LATom Ford AW15

Tom Ford jumped ship form London this year to be where the majority of his FRow would be – in LA for the Oscars. Seventies graphic patterns and shaggy coats and a penchant for black teamed with Victoriana midnight necklaces is a trend we look forward to for AW15!
