Hot off the runway!

New York Fashion Week 2017 started off fashion month in absolute style, setting the bar for London Fashion Week very high indeed.

There were sequins on the runway at La Perla and Oscar de la Renta, followed by a major tartan comeback at Jenny Packham and Dior, while Victoria Beckham elevated the power suit and humble oversized jumper.

But that’s not to say London Fashion Week, which runs from Friday 17th to Tuesday 21st, won’t kick some serious fashion ass as well – as it always does to be honest. London is where you come to break the style boundaries a little.

Florals were everywhere from Topshop Unique and Mary Katrantzou to Preen and Mulberry, on sequins, printed silk and ruffles. Whatever your personal style, we can guarantee there will be something floral right up your street.

Topshop Unique, House of Holland and Mary Katrantzou are just a few fashion houses that always get the balance between fun and wearable just right.

And obviously, we can always count on Mulberry and Burberry to bring us quintessential British style with a twist.

Mulberry drew on English heritage for a collection that was all tweeds and equestrian detailing. 20s silhouettes also featured heavily, with silk florals dresses dropped down at the waist. The brand’s iconic brands also got a serious makeover. Gone are the Alexa and Bayswater, replaced by slouchy bags, hat boxes and tiny, tiny coin purses. Jewels featured heavily on everything from sunglasses to ear cuffs, and of course, bags.

We’re never short of entertainment either, with the likes of Anya Hindmarch (who presented some incredible fluffy slippers), Hill & Friends and Sophia Webster always putting on incredible productions to showcase their fun designs. Nothing short of a work of art.

We can guarantee there will be something for everyone this London Fashion Week, with some of the hottest designers in the industry showing their AW17 collections to press and buyers. Just a few names on the schedule include House of Holland, Julien McDonald, Temperley London, J.W. Anderson, Peter Pilotto and Charlotte Olympia. We could go on and on!

We’ll naturally be bringing you the absolute best looks from the shows, for your viewing pleasure. Enjoy.

Plus (don’t say we don’t spoil you), you’ll be able to see which celebrities are sitting front row at the shows in our gallery here. NYFW saw Alexa Chung, Sarah Jessica Parker, Madonna, Diane Kruger and Olivia Palermo grace the FROW, so expect a good line-up.
