While New York grabs everything vintage, Paris goes for the classics, Milan focuses on Avant Garde, London stands apart in its ability to hunt out young blood! This year, Fashion Scout at the London Fashion Week hosted the ‘Next Big Things’. As the Fashion Editor at POPxo, I was seated front row, with London School Of Trends, Delhi, witnessing the magic as the models strutted down the runway in some of the coolest new looks. Here is a sneak peak into my favourite bits from London Fashion Week 2017.
1. The Street Style
London is well known for its cool and distinguished street style. When Fashion Week rolls around, it’s time to dig deep in your closet and create the most ‘out-there’ outfit possible. The few days dedicated to style, allow you to bring out the maximalist in you. Think fishnets under ripped jeans, chunky track sole boots, corduroy pants and oversized shirts. Nothing is considered ‘too much’ when you’re getting ready to attend London Fashion Week!
2. Celebrating Indian Talent
No, Ashish wasn’t the only Indian designer showcasing at London Fashion Week. There was an entire day dedicated to celebrating young designers from various parts of India. 24 Indian student designers participated in two different shows hosted by London School Of Trends. The first show was presented on Saturday the 16th, while the second part was held on the final day of Fashion Scout’s SS18 shows. This show entitled ‘The New Rashtra’ showcased traditional Indian craft with modern silhouettes. Every designer beautifully infused a piece of home in their designs with brocade, zari, sari drapes, and traditional Indian prints.
The young designers of London School Of Trends and INIFD were later honoured at a dinner hosted at the Indian High Commission in London.
3. Hallie Sara
New-York based designer Hallie Sara’s approach to wearable designs deserves our attention. Even with a quick glimpse at her Spring/Summer collection, one can tell the outfits were created from the finest materials.
4. Masaba Steps Up The Game
And finally, Masaba Gupta came armed with her stylish entourage and infectious energy to the Fashion week. As the grand finale act of India Day hosted by London School Of Trends, her easy-going silhouettes with her signature quirky prints were a refreshing change from the otherwise muted looks dressing the runway.
We’re now all set to head to Milan Fashion Week! Which one are you looking forward to?
