The only London Fashion Week Roundup You Need!
The pandemic has changed the concept of fashion shows as we knew them. With everything becoming digital and presentations being largely audience-less, there was definitely a damper on the buzz and excitement that surrounded fashion weeks. The fashion community was quick to adjust to the change while still managing to deliver knockout designs. The London Fashion Week was all about the light at the end of the tunnel – a post corona world where we shall dress up and down and go all about town. Yes, the designs truly gave hope that we will party again, dress up & step out.
The collections displayed swayed from feminine goth to cheery & colorful and back to fall favorites like plaid. The London Fashion Week saw many up & comers who took advantage of the digital displays and went full throttle with their creativity, not just in designs but in their videos and presentations too. Harris Reed, Matty Bovan and Liam Hedges were some names that definitely took creativity to a whole new level.
From balloon sleeves, ruffled layers, catsuits and flared pants, the London Fashion Week gave the fashion world a kickstart to some gorgeous designs and trends for Fall/Winter 2021. Molly Goddard, the undisputed Queen of Tulle, displayed ruffled tulle dresses in bright colours, plaid favourites and monochrome dresses perked up with bows and frills. Very Alice in Wonderland, very Mad Hatter. Very, very welcome for Fall.
Vivienne Westwood took inspiration from a rococo painting “Daphnis & Chloe” by french artist Francois Boucher. The print of the 1743 painting was seen on shirts, denim, dresses. It’s also noteworthy that 90% of the collection was made from materials that have a reduced impact on our environment. The collection was a melange of edgy, modern cuts mixed with an old world charm.
We got to see the return of some trends and some fresh ones came to life too. Head-to-toe florals might be a bit too obvious for spring, but we didnt see them coming for fall. Yuhan Wang, Erdem & Preen by Thornton Bregazzi displayed some deeply floral pieces that are winning over us. As is plaid! Yes, the ever evolving, ever permanent fall favourite – plaid. It got a cool update from Chopova Lowena and Molly Goddard. Hip, young and fun plaid is around the corner.
The final trend you must know from London Fashion Week is the emphasis on volume and size. From balloon sleeves to spacious gowns and dresses, this fall is all about the bigger the better. Roksanda, Simone Rocha and Osman Yousefzada have some quirky, zesty and poofy designs to knock your socks off. Need some more visuals?
