With New York Fashion Week coming to a close, it’s now London’s turn. Traditionally known as the fashion week for up and coming designers, LFW is considered one of the more groundbreaker and conceptual weeks. However, in recent years more established brands have made the jump to London Fashion Week, making it a more dynamic and diverse experience. To help you abreast of the hottest shows this fashion week, we’ve compiled a list of what to expect from LFW SS19.
Burberry’s New Direction
LFW will see Burberry unveil its revamped image under the new artistic director, Riccardo Tisci. The former Givenchy director, who surprised fashionistas when he took over from Christopher Bailey back in March, makes his catwalk debut at LFW at 17th September at 5pm.
Back in July, the Italian designer also announced a Burberry collaboration with Vivienne Westwood. The collection isn’t set to hit stores until December, but the punk nature of their cooperation tells us this is one collection we can’t wait to see.
Victoria Beckham’s 10 Year Anniversary
Victoria Beckham is celebrating the 10 year anniversary of her brand with a triumphant return to LFW. While Vicky’s studio is based in London, Mrs. Beckham has historically shown her collections in New York, where her sleek take on power-dressing has been a natural fit. Sunday, September 16th will see if the change of environment will impact her creative process. Either way, we’re in for an emotional, and hopefully nostalgic show.
Alexa Chung Debuts
Alexa Chung will also make her LFW debut as the creative head of her own label. Attaching her it-girl name to a collection that echoes her distinct sense of style. Chung’s arrival at London Fashion Week serves as a great reminder of the spirit of LFW. From mega fashion houses like Burberry to young designers, there’s room for everyone at this prestigious fashion week.
Nicholas Kirkwood Return to LFW
This season also sees Nicholas Kirkwood take of the challenge of an on-schedule shoe show this season. Making this return to London Fashion Week, Kirkwood has spent previous fashion weeks showcasing in Paris, where the British-based shoe designer has staged smaller presentations. He is promising an “Immersive and experimental” evening on Sunday, September 16th at 5pm.
