THE QUEEN SITS IN THE FROW
Everybody loves a new and surprising face on the front row. New York had Cardi B and London had none other than the Queen of England herself. The Queen snuck into the show and sat next to fashion’s queen, Anna Wintour, and we can only wonder what they were talking about. The Queen made her Fashion Week debut in order to present the inaugural Queen Elizabeth II Award for British Design, to designer Richard Queen.
BURBERRY SUPPORTS LGBTQ
For Christopher Bailey’s last show for Burberry, he made a powerful statement by reinventing the classic Burberry check with rainbow hued stripes, in support of LGBTQ+ youth. “My final collection here at Burberry is dedicated to and in support of some of the best and brightest organisations supporting LGBTQ+ youth around the world,” Bailey wrote on the company's Instagram. “There has never been a more important time to say that in our diversity lies our strength, and our creativity.”
TAILORED DRAMA AT GARETH PUGH
Gareth Pugh is known for adding a lot of drama to the runway with his seasonal collections. This season, Pugh presented a surprisingly covetable collection of sleek tailoring with serious attitude.
From the powerful, oversized shoulders, to the impeccably slouched paper bag trousers and the sculpted leather looks, Gareth Pugh made a serious case for feminine yet powerful tailoring.
Headwear is bigger than ever this season, and it’s definitely a must-try sartorial update. From Isa Arfen’s giant berets to the theatrical hats and fascinators at Mulberry, what better way to make a statement than with larger than life headgear?
