The Names to Watch this London Fashion Week: AW16

As LC:M kicks off, I can’t help but get excited for London Fashion Week. With over a month until one of the best weeks in London starts, here are four designers to put on your radar this season.

Last season, Ashley Williams brought anti-princess glam to the runway. The glamorous silhouette and juxtaposing crude prints had everyone wanting to join Williams “BAD MOOD” anti-princess gang.

Inspired by bad moods and teenage angst, I can’t wait to see what Ashley Williams brings to the runway in February. Let’s just hope it continues to toy with femininity and the ideals of beauty. 

Last year, I fell mystically in love with Shrimps, designed by Hannah Weiland, the AW15 collection took me on a journey to the wonderful world of fabulous fur and Oz – and I couldn’t get enough! May fur triumph again this season…

Whether it is autumn/winter or spring/summer, Rejina Pyo, is known for creating timeless collections that distort the boundaries between artist and designer. Inspired by modern art and architecture, Pyo has created stand out collections, that can pretty much go from the runway straight to your wardrobe.

Mary Katrantzou blew many of us fashion-lovers away with her cosmic SS16 collection. Inspired by outer space, Katrantzou brought a series of unforgettable evening dresses; making this collection one of the most directly wearable collection yet – if you want to talk about craftsmanship, the designer on your lips should be Mary Katrantzou.

Of course, my eyes will also be peeled for all my other favourites; House of Holland, Jonathan Saunders, ASHISH, Peter Pilotto and many others. But in the meantime, what designer you are excited to see this season?
