London Fashion Week is undoubtedly one of the most exciting fashion events in the calendar and as quickly as the February A/W 2017 show started, it’s sadly already coming to an end. With that being said we thought we would do a round up of some of our favourite looks from the catwalks over the last few days!
Preen’s AW17 collection was a display of oversized garments, dramatic ruffles and a mix of floral and gingham prints. The make-up for the show was kept simple, with the focus being clean skin and a bold smeared lip colour.
The Versus Versace show was a very exciting one full of lot’s of famous faces, with models like Gigi and Bella Hadid, Taylor Hill and model of the moment Adwoa Aboah gracing the catwalk. Chunky statement chokers were revived and given a new lease of life. The clothing featured a mix of monochromatic graphic prints, neon colours and classic autumnal colours such as black and burgundy. The featured look for the female models was wet, textured hair and a statement blocked colour of eyeshadow to compliment the grunge meets sports aesthetic of the outfits. The male models on the other hand were styled in a much more natural way.
Simone Rocha had a military like feel to her latest collection which was complimented by the minimal make-up and slick simple hair of the models. Whilst protesters gathered outside London Fashion Week in order to protest against ageism within the fashion industry, Rocha was not one to fall victim of this accusation. Rocha sent models of all ages down the catwalk with Italian actress and model Benedetta Barzini, aged 73, being the oldest of the models featured in the show.
Mary Katrantzou’s A/W17 collection was inspired by Disney’s 1940’s classic film Fantasia which was evident through the assortment of beautiful colours and fun textures that featured throughout. Tweed, florals and fur were a recurring theme throughout the show. Hair was kept simple with a centre parting and tucked behind the ears. The make-up was once again very neutral with a bright pop of coloured eyeshadow to tie the fun and colourful looks together.
