For the first time in six years London Fashion Week has broken its conventional ties with Somerset House and migrated to Soho. Crowds of press and buyers gathered around Brewer Street Car Park this morning, where designers will be hosting the biggest catwalk shows in a much more urban setting.
Elegant silhouettes coupled with a playful colour palette were the dominant features of Jackie Lee’s free-spirited catwalk show.
Ethereal whites and pastel colours were juxtaposed with riotous display of orange and fuschia in Bora Aksu’s delicate yet powerful collection.
The Italian designer returns with a fusion of gothic rock and neoprene sportswear, taking inspiration from an eagle’s wings.
Chunky flatforms and playful, animated designs were reminiscent of Japanese street style in the Elms Lesters Painting Rooms exhibition.
The highly anticipated ‘forgetful dynasty’ was packed out with celebrities as electric blues, cut-out backless dresses and show-stopping jewellery dominated the catwalk.
Descending the staircase into the legendary 100 Club on Oxford Street, we were transported back in time to Samantha McCoach’s 90’s inspired collection. Think grunge chic coupled with feminine punk.
