This season was no exception to London’s global reputation as the epicenter of young talent. JW Anderson, Molly Goddard, Simone Rocha and Erdem presented their collections in a correspondingly spectacular way, but all eyes were on Daniel Lee’s second show for Burberry.
The celebrations started with a new tradition: the British equivalent of the Met Gala, organized by Anna Wintour to support London performing arts venues. The dazzling red carpet of Vogue World gave star power to Fashion Week, with guests from Sienna Miller (who showed her belly in Schiaparelli couture) and Jodie Turner-Smith to Princess Eugenie and Kate Winslet.

Some designers pushed the term “wearable art” to its limits, presenting a series of creative pieces that were sculptural rather than tailoring.
From HARRI, who designed the attention-grabbing inflatable costume worn by musician Sam Smith at the Brit Awards in February, to JW Anderson, designers have redefined the concept of wearable art.
This season, shoes reigned supreme. Simone Rocha’s surprising collaboration with Crocs was presented on the catwalk this Sunday, recreating the controversial rubber shoe with platform heels studded with the Irish designer’s signature pearls and Jibbitz crystals.
