London Fashion Week is almost here!

By  | 


New York Fashion Week kicks off today (runs until 15th September), which means London is next! From 16th to 20th of September, the capital will transform into a fash fest, with venues all over town becoming catwalk spaces, and editors, buyers, bloggers and stylists will be clambering over each other to grab a hot latte and their front row seat. 

There are lots of hot designers to watch this season too. From the established greats (Mulberry, Paul Smith, Mary Katrantzou, Julien Macdonald) to the up and comers (Ashish, Marques’Almeida) to the newbies (Mimi Wade, Molly Goddard). 

And whilst there’s still time, why not add a statement piece from one of our great designers to your wardrobe for the new season! Here’s some of my favourites right now…

 

ASHISH

King of the sequin, Ashish Gupta knows how to bring the bling. For autumn, there are lots of bold colours, all worn together for one complete look.

TOPSHOP UNIQUE

The high end brand from the high street favourite is back with a fab new collection. This season it celebrates ‘gorgeous, powerful women’ with metallic pieces, printed coats and blazers to layer over… everything. Add in the obligatory cool factor too, obviously!

MARY KATRANTZOU

Mary made her name a few years back when her hyper-real digital prints exploded onto the fashion scene. And London Fashion Week wouldn’t be the same without her. We’ve had fish, birds, shoe laces and for this collection, stars, arrows and flames!

PAPER LONDON

The brand’s first catwalk show was during Berlin Fashion Week for Autumn Winter ’15, and since then it has been the recipient of the British Fashion Council’s Contemporary Award. Plus celebs love it: Jennifer Lopez, Taylor Swift and Kate Hudson to name a few. It’s affordable, playful, statement and the sculptural shapes make for amazing wardrobe staples!

SHRIMPS

If you follow any street style Instagram accounts, you’d have come across a Shrimps coat or two. The brand, launched by Hannah Weiland who studied art history and textiles, is now queen of faux fur. You only have to touch one of these coats to realise that it’s amazing quality, and the colours are infectious! She’s also recently branched out into other categories: dresses, sweaters and shirts.
