London Fashion Week 2016 Overview

London Fashion Week 2016 came to an end, and we want to share some of the main trends, looks and news we have spotted.

There seems to be no single stand-out colour trend for this season, you could see a wide range of shades on the AW16 catwalks. However, pastel shades, classic black and white combinations, and silver could be seen in a number of collections.

Burberry show has been one of the London Fashion Week’s hottest tickets, as always. On the first row of the show you could spot some of the biggest names in fashion, such as Alexa Chung, Naomi Campbell and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. New collection showed a mix of patterns and textures inspired by British artists, musicians and history.

Burberry has a new delivery initiative, planning to introduce see-now, buy-now approach in the next season. Meanwhile, the womenswear collection will be on display immediately after the show at the 121 Regent Street store, with some selected pieces being available to pre-order and personalise in store via Burberry’s Runway Made to Order service.

Appearing at the London Fashion Week catwalk last Sunday for the first time in 14 years, Alexander McQueen show attracted lots of attention. New collection by British designer Sarah Burton was one of her most romantic collections ever, included flowing embroidered dresses and silk organza gowns. There are certain rumours that Burton might be heading to Dior soon, taking a seat left vacant by Raf Simons.

Vivienne Westwood once again showed her signature androgynous style with some rather brave colour combinations. Christopher Kane who is always keen to deliver at least one populist hit, also unveiled a new “K” logo, which featured on sloppy-knit sweaters.
