. If you can't make it in person, be sure to catch the live stream and all the highlights
. The return of London Fashion Week sees an array of women’s catwalk shows put on by the biggest names in the fashion world. The glitterati will flock to London to catch the scoop on the next big fashion statement pieces. For aspiring designers, seasoned pros and the rest, their shows' success or failure depend upon the relationships forged with influential magazine editors, fashion writers and bloggers. If you don’t have a strong FROW (front row) packed with influential celebrities, models and pop stars a show may fall flat(s), get it! There were some fabulous FROWs last year causing a tizz in gossip mags and tabloids, how about the power packed Burberry SS16 FROW of Sienna Miller, Kate Moss and Carla Delevingne?
How do designers attract such big celebrities to their shows then? Well, basically a little begging, ocassionally some cold hard cash and cross promotion ‘you scratch my back, I’ll scratch yours dahling – watch the nails!’. At Myvouchercodes.co.uk we’re not above a little begging, maybe even some borrowing (but never stealing, of course), that’s why on this page we’ll give you some of our best tips to achieving that catwalk look on a tight budget.
To many Fashion Week may seem a superficial sideshow, but if you are fashion forward, you’ll need to be there or at least be aware of what the latest trends and looks are for the next season. There are some highly recognisable names at this season’s Fashion Week; catch Jasper Conran on Saturday 18th February at W1, Mulberry on Sunday 19th February – location TBC, whilst you can keep up with British fashion institutuion Burberry on Monday 20th February and you can catch all of Topshop’s new designs on the Sunday of Fashion Week.
Topshop will be presenting at the Tate Modern, there are four other show locations for this London Fashion Week. Other locations include BFC Show Space The Store Studios, BFC Presentation Space The Store Studios, ON|OFF at London’s South Bank and the Painting Rooms Presentations hosted by The Royal Society.The Mulberry Summer 2017 collection looks
set to feature surprising layers, frills, statement sleeves, swishy fabrics, 80s shoulders, and muted cool sophisticated colours.Jasper Conran’s Summer looks
include asymmetrical patterned dresses with the feel of surrealist paintings; featuring stripes and checks mainly in bold two colour combinations. Expect layered, pleated and multi-dimensional dresses that drape, fold and move creating a pleasing chaos.
We can only imagine what other trends designers will dream up this year, Autumn/Winter '16 bought hot new looks like irregular stripes (looks set to continue), feline and big cat prints, 80s comeback (again this looks to be an enduring fashion), a velvet renaissance, a kind of high fashion biker mish mash and corsets!
Wear Last Year’s Looks for Less
ImproviseGet a bold surreal stripey look by combining a chunky striped scarf with a textured knit jumper or stripy dress, easy as that. Go down to the local charity shop for your 80s looks and velvet, the bonus with retro comeback fashion is you can find quality pieces for less or even raid your parents or relatives wardrobes. If you lived through the 80s as a fashioniasta you might even have a few pieces which are once again the height of fashion. Everything cat based is now fashionable, and it’s not much of a surprise when the internet is 90% cat pictures, combine your leopard print coat with a feline based clutch or anything printed with cats/kittens/big cats from skirts to dresses to tees. No longer will you look like a cat lady - but the height of fashion.
Fashion Week comes just in time for the new season fashion collections. See if you can get inspired by what’s on show from the world most renowned designers. When you have an idea or two, look closely at our promotions, and visit the stores. Fashion is cyclical and the ‘new’ trends cropping up on the catwalk may just be old favourites recycled or modernised for a new audience. With personal style what goes around always comes back around in one fashion or another. With that said use your creativity to mix and mash the old and the new, the quirky and the straitlaced. Take control of your look, we certainly think that is a better way than a thousand identikit drones.
