London Fashion Week 2018: Highlights and Trend Forecast

Running from February 16th – February 20th 2018, London Fashion Week 2018 #LFW2018 has just concluded and as usual, it’s got everybody buzzing with conversation and excitement. Although the biannual event always makes headlines, nobody was expecting  to see yesterday’s surprise visitor who came to watch the final show of the season. Here’s a concise roundup of the highlights and trend forecast from AW18 LDN fashion week.

London Fashion Week 2018

London’s AW18 Fashion Week for Autumn/Winter 2018 showcased a variety of interesting textures and bold choice of colour. It is clear that we are going to continue to see a lot of bold colours, statement pieces and quirky textures this year.  Last season during AW17 we saw lots of tailored fabrics, embellished collars, and attention to detail. Popular prints from last season included animal prints, floral patterns, zebra prints, and tropical leaf patterns. At this week’s London Fashion Week 2018 we’ve learned that the key focus of Autumn/Winter 18 is still all about “the big and the bold”.

The Queen Attends LFW 2018

While London has set the bar high during the first week of the Fashion Week season, one of the key highlights from LFW18 was a surprise visit from the Queen of England. Her Majesty Queen appeared right at home as she sat in the FROW (front row) next to famous fashion royalty such as Anna Wintour, Royal dress maker – Angela Kelly, and other famous names in fashion. The Queen turned heads as she arrived to watch the last show of the week – the Richard Quinn show. The final show ended on a high when the Monarch presented the young designer with the inaugural Queen Elizabeth II Award for British Design.
