London Fashion Week is one of the Big Four in the fashion world. Each year thousands of designers, models, buyers, press, and fashion lovers flock to London for several days of gorgeous fashion shows. London Fashion Week is an invite-only event, so unless you have a insider hook-up getting into the shows is nearly impossible. Many shows are now streamed online, but you can get a real insider’s look by following the official London Fashion Week Instagram account. In addition to sharing highlights from the week’s shows, you can get rare glimpses of the action behind the scenes at London Fashion Week.
Behind the Scenes
Irish designer Richard Malone started London Fashion Week off on the right foot with a collection inspired by his hometown. The fashions and the runway evoked the atmosphere of a small town marketplace. The models wore aprons and headscarves in vibrant colors of green, blue, and purple.
The London Fashion Week Instagram account caught a few of the models preparing to head to the runway, giving us a closer look at the detailing on the garments.
The LFW Instagram account also caught models with designer Pam Hogg backstage of her Autumn Winter 2018 show. Hogg’s brightly colored collection was a homage to British designer and punk icon Judy Blame. The collection’s quirky garments featured sheer fabrics and eccentric accents like faux birds and gathered tulle.
A Look Backstage
Instead of bold colors and revealing garments, French designer Roland Mouret’s 1970’s inspired collection featured classic autumn materials like corduroy and wool. The show notes for the collection stated:
Roland Mouret proves that there is practicality in femininity, and femininity is a woman’s greatest power.
Cameras also caught two of designer Ashish’s models having a candid moment backstage of his runway show. This fabulously colorful collection featured a rainbow of colors and textures as a nod to the designer’s Indian heritage. As always Ashish made sure the models in his show featured a racially diverse cast of models all clad in his 1970s inspired designs.
