There is always an enticing and unpredictable element to London’s short fashion week. The chaotic energy of the city’s street culture and history always shines through in the collections. Not only is it a platform for new fashion talents, but more importantly, there is never a dull moment with you, London.

Nensi Dojaka

Unconcerned with elaborate themes, Nensi Dojaka knows how to keep it simple and enticing. In black, beige, and warm hues of red, models wore delicate yet geometric designs, proving Dojaka dresses women for comfort and aesthetics. The designer also played with velvet and sequins, as seen on Imaan Hammam.

David Koma

With German-American actress Marlene Dietrich as his muse, David Koma creates a collection referencing classic silhouettes from the 1930s and 1960s. This collection captures the essence of chic and modern rock glamour by blurring the lines between masculine and feminine symbols of desire.

Feben

Titled Scales, Feben’s collection revolves around the tarot card The Chariot, a symbol of the institution. With the twisted satin bobble dresses (as worn by Jorja Smith), the floor-length lycra dresses and sleek feminine silhouettes seen on the male models, the Central Saint Martins graduate is one to look out for.

JW Anderson

Also on the list were JW Anderson’s furry tube tops with pockets, a perfect choice for those who don’t have their nails done in time, and the exaggerated coat collar would be perfect for any of the Olsen twins and their fanatics. The designer once again demonstrated his mastery of colour blocking and dimensions.

Roksanda

There was nothing more divine than Roksanda’s mysteriously crafted collection. From the meticulous draping, 3-D shapes, leather gloves, peek-a-boo veil moments, and the divine colour palette, this collection was simply a vision.

Burberry

After deciding it was time for the brand to become relevant again, Daniel Lee made Burberry youthful and modern while speaking to London his way. Known for claiming particular colours, let’s see what Lee has in store for Burberry Blue.
