This season, independent designers and luxury household brand names brought their energy to the runway with individuality, colour and pattern.
London Fashion Week is a valued opportunity for any designer to showcase not only their collections, but overall brand vision, giving them a chance to bring their ideas to life through an immersive performance watched by the world.
Unlike Paris, New York or Milan, London is known primarily for our showcase of upcoming and rising designers who are very much ones to watch in the fashion scene. So it's no surprise to hear that some of the most inspiring looks captured this season are from new talents you may not have yet heard that much about...
Harikrishnan Keezhathil Surendran Pillai made his grand debut at London Fashion Week this weekend who is known as a multidisciplinary artist and designer who 'dreams with his hands'. Born in Kerali, India Harikrishnan made headlines when dressing Sam Smith's Brit Awards look earlier this year and again this season for his heroic debut and LFW. Channeling his menswear garments into creative dance movements.
Another designer which caught our attention was Erdem Moralıoğlu, an established British designer who delivered a collection inspired by the late Duchess of Devonshire. This was a t was a charming collection of 1950s-inflected car coats, peplum dresses, lingerie slip dresses and wool cardigans, which suggested a combination of opulence and make-do-and-mend. We loved the floral inspiration and 1950s shapes and lingerie detailing which was key themed circulating LFW this season.
