DSCN6003-1Fashion Fabulous has been going to London Fashion Week for sixteen years and over the years seen many amazing shows, presentations, interviewed inspiring designers and had the pleasure of attending lots of great parties! Compiled are some the highlights of the latest London Fashion Week that took place on 18th-22nd September…

Here’s Issa (above) showing the sheer elegance of pure whites at their London Fashion Week catwalk show.

DSCN6001-1Signature draping was used on silk and jersey dresses. Issa showed fascinating geometric prints that are sure to be a big hit in London stores next Spring.

This time the hub of London Fashion Week moved from Somerset House to Brewer Street Car Park, Soho! The highlight of the London Fashion Calendar this is the go to event where top and upcoming designers showed their Spring/Summer 2016 collections on the catwalk or exhibit at this trade exhibition. London hotels and restaurants are filled with the international fashion set. Besides the on-schedule shows, Fashion Scout ran a parallel alternative schedule of catwalk shows and exhibits at the Freemasons Hall, Covent Garden. Also On|Off was back with shows at the Vinyl Factory in Marshall Street and new to London Fashion Week was Scoop at the Saatchi Gallery, King’s Road.

DSCN5991-1A great presentation at Edeline Lee (above) featured aqua, lilac, primrose yellow and coral colour blocked in a cool relaxed but striking manner.

DSCN5996-1Vielma opted for a retro ” Vegas baby” theme. Midnight blues with star motifs are going to be a favourite in this collection.

Fashion maximalism ruled at Fyodor Golan’s catwalk show! The inspiration apparently was “Transformers” the sci-fi iconic futuristic robots.

Fyodor Golan used lots of colour! The shoes were made in collaboration with Kat Maconie.

DSCN6000-1Dame Zandra Rhodes new collection was inspired by Malaysia where its produced.

DSCN6003-1We liked Robert Wun’s collection at On|Off at the Vinyl Factory, Soho

…and Marketa Martiskova also at On|Off

We loved the Belstaff LFW SS16 collection inspired by the thrust of waves and the hums of throttled engines

DSCN6026-2Georgette dresses were mixed with leather jackets making a more feminine look for Belstaff

DSCN6035-1Heavy London used their Designer Showroom space effectively with different static presentations each day.

This is a shot from Heavy London’s installation on the final day. Great urbanwear!

We also very much liked the Mayrafdane handbags at the LFW Designer Showrooms

This Atelier Swarovski necklace displayed at the LFW Designer Showrooms will retail at  £1400.
