LONDON FASHION WEEK 2019

3 weeks ago | BY Huma Hazarika Sharma

All the trends we fancied

The Fall/Winter 2019 edit of London Fashion Week was haute couture at its finest. We saw lots of new trends, and old, get a do-over, and frills, granny knits and metallics were in full-swing. While Victoria Beckham partied it up with Spice Girls lookalikes in drag at an after-party, and launched her official Youtube channel, and yesteryear star, Joan Collins made a rather dramatic entrance, and graced the #FROW at the Erdem show on a Monday morning no less, there were other un-fashun developments like chants of “There’s no fashion on a dead planet” by climate change protesters on one of the biggest days at LFW. Like we always say #TheOnlyWayIsSustainable 

#CHECKSPLEASE

Everyone from Alexa Chung to Rejina Pyo, and everyone’s fav Brit label, Burberry favoured prints in all shades and sizes.

#FLEURDELYS

Big, bad, bold floral prints graced the clothes of everyone from Simone Rocha, Preen and Erdem.

#RUFFLESANDTULLES

Molly Goddard and Mary Katranzou didn’t disappoint with their OTT ruffled & tulle ensembles that reminded us of that other newbie designer who was a critic+crowd fav at NYFW.

#SHIMSHIMMYSHIM

While Ashish gave us some pretty wicked whimsical all-glitter dresses, Mary K’s sophistical shimmery skirt we loved, and Ricardo Tisci’s diamante chain ponchos sweaters embellished with ‘em were a big hit.

Coats 2 sizes too big, if not more, were in nearly every show, but our fav 3 were the ones we spotted at Alexa Chung, Ports 1961 and Victoria B.

#EXOTICPLUMES
