After five days of edgy sartorial splendour, London Fashion Week has brought out some chic and stunning fashion trends.The week-long fashion affair wasn’t short of heart-stopping moments.Let us just take some time to reflect on the key trends that have emerged out of the five-day long fashion fiesta in London.
There were rumours in air that the miniskirts was all set for a come back, but if London Fashion Week is anything to go buy, a more modest hemline will reign supreme next season. Alas! The midi skirts are no longer slave to librarian stereotypes; this style is quite the wardrobe staple as we pump up for the upcoming season. Team yours with an oversized knitted jumper and biker boots – a failsafe look for all shapes and sizes. At Burberry, chocolate-brown leather iterations in pencil skirt shapes were showcased, while Margaret Howell served up an earthier palette with an A-line silhouette. They are perfect for the office and work just as well after hours.

Shades of scarlet sounds quite exciting for the season to come. It made its way into everything, from scarves, pencil skirts and blouses at Victoria Beckham to 1980s style mini dresses at Preen by Thornton Bregazzi and Grecian robes at Marta Jakubowski.
There was a time when the only British designer pushing tulle to its most voluminous limits was Molly Goddard, whose bright, exuberant tutu-like dresses became a sought-after staple. Well, Goddard seems to sticking to the puffed up-roots. Others labels have clearly taken note from a fuchsia gown from Goddard’s autumn/winter 2019 collection. Mary Katrantzou, for example, sent models down the runway in a whole host of fabulously fluffy creations, including one canary-yellow gown as worn by model Natalia Vodianova.
Glitter all the way
If there’s one underlying motto for the season ahead, it’s that you can never be too sparkly. This particular trend has been spotted even during the New York Fashion Week. The trend has permeated the runways in London catwalks, and not just in the party powerhouse labels you’d expect it. From Richard Quinn and Molly Goddard to Paula Knorr, everyone hopped aboard the glitter-soaked ship this time around via shimmering chain-like capes, giant Swarovski crystal embellishments on the necklines of dresses and sheer crop tops.
Florals were in absolute full bloom all over the runways at the New York Fashion Week. But next season’s florals are far from prim and proper. At Erdem, they were ornate and nostalgic, conjuring up memories of your grandmother’s retro wallpaper print. Richard Quinn opted for a similarly vintage aesthetic with various gowns and full-bodied skirts covered in sprawling petals and intricate thorns, whereas at Preen by Thornton Bregazzi, flower prints injected a dose of optimism to what was otherwise a neutral-heavy collection, adorning loose orange suits and vermilion midi dresses.
