London fashion week 2018

It’s that time of the year again – all eyes are on London as we wait to see what the designers think we’ll be wearing next season at London Fashion Week 2018.

We’ll be keeping a close eye on the week’s goings on and posting updates to our Facebook Page – as will many designers, models, stylists and other fashionistas. For an ‘I could almost have been on the FROW view of the fashion pack, here’s a list of some of the most influential people you HAVE to follow

If the forecasts are accurate, they will all be wearing tiny glasses and sunnies next week.

Replacing the perennial big sun glasses trend that’s dominated for many years, tiny glasses are getting a revamp from people like Kylie Jenner, Gigi Hadid and some of the big fashion brands.

For a spot of regal style, it’s also been announced that to coincide with London Fashion Week 2018 The Duchess of Cambridge and Countess of Wessex are going to be working together to host a royal fashion extravaganza. The Commonwealth Fashion Exchange Reception will be held at Buckingham Palace and feature UK and Commonwealth favourites like Stella McCartney, Bibi Russell and Karen Walker, along with artisan producers from smaller or developing countries. If royal trends are your thing, you can also keep your eyes peeled for Sentaler, one of Meghan Markle’s favourite brands.

It’s now very much a ‘thing’ and so London Modest Fashion Week will be back on 17th and 18th February this year after bringing modest designers to London in 2017 to help break down certain fashion stereotypes. Last year, models dressed in stunning headscarves and Islamic robes created a stir as they walked the catwalk at London’s Saatchi Gallery, to a fantastic reception.

The event -which was founded by two Muslim women, Doctor Fahreen Mir and Sultana Tafadar, will be repeated this year and looks set to become a permanent fixture on the UK style calendar.  The London Modest Fashion Week will be held over two days at London’s Victoria House and features a mix of shows, presentations, exhibitions, talks, shopping, music and film. You can pick up the tickets on the Haute-Elan website.
