London Fashion Week is considered the home of the young, the adventurous, and the up-and-coming. This year, designers showcased their collections in an amazing setting and the attending crowds came out dressed to impress. With many live musicians added to the mix to make the fashion come alive, every show was unique in its own way. Some showcases were so over the top that I suspect consumers might have felt a bit overwhelmed as they watched the shows and took in all the fashion and styling art gathered under one roof.
I see fashion as art on a large scale, and even though the designs are not always meant to walk off the run way onto the streets, a sharp eye can see that each individual garment offers many translatable possibilities. One of the shows that stood out for me and really intrigued me was from designer Anya Hindmarch. Her colour palette was fresh, colourful, and featured very beautiful details; I also felt that many of her pieces are totally wearable. But what I loved most about this show was the unique concept of the runway. It made me feel like some time capsule had just been opened and pop! out came the art. And the next thing you knew, the lid came down again and the art was gone, tucked away for us to think about until Spring/Summer 2017. Fashion Week in London was all about the artistic flair you can wear!
