Highlights from London Fashion Week Fall 2014
London Fashion Week Fall 2014 has wrapped up, leaving us with the trends
we'll be wearing next season. Right here, I won't be telling you about
the latest trends that were spotted on the runways, but rather I'll be
spotting some highlights from a selection of shows
from London Fashion Week Fall 2014.
Cara Delevingne took the first ever selfie on a fashion runway at the
Giles Deacon Fall 2014 show, where the model documented the finale as
video on her phone and then she posted it on her personal Instagram
2. Mary Katrantzou, who's also known as 'Queen of
Prints,' has actually ditched the digital prints for her Fall 2014
show. The designer experimented with embroidery and embellishments, by
integrating symbols and signs onto the textiles she's used.
Christopher Kane debuted the label's first leather goods line at the
Fall 2014 show, including bags and shoes. The designer is preparing to
open his first boutique this year in London.
4. One of the
dresses from the Tom Ford Fall 2014 collection was inspired by Jay Z.
After Jay Z had released a song named "Tom Ford,' he once wore a t-shirt
to a concert that read "Tom Ford," "61" with the word "Molly" crossed
out, just like the lyrics of the song, and that was the inspiration
behind a sequined dress at Tom Ford's Fall 2014 show.
5. The models at the Burberry Prorsum Fall 2014 show finale lined up wearing monogrammed ponchos, each one with her very own initials.
Azza Fahmy and Matthew Williamson collaborated for a jewelry collection
once again this season. The Matthew Williamson Fall 2014 collection was
inspired by the 70s, and that was reflected in Azza Fahmy's starburst jewelry designs.
Anya Hindmarch's Fall 2014 collection was one of the most talked about
ones, as the designer showcased a collection that was inspired by the
supermarket. Bags shaped like cereal boxes, detergent packs and custard
cream tins were the highlight of the accessories.
8. Star Wars fans will love the Preen Fall 2014 collection, as Darth Vader's face was printed on some of the tops and dresses.
