With London Fashion Week starting next week, UK designers are now in the very final stages of their pre-show preparations, and we’re on the lookout for the best, innovative new brands.
Last month, The British Fashion Council releasedthe schedule for the Autumn/Winter 2018 shows, and there are a few names on the list that we’re particularly looking forward to seeing.
Having worked for iconic designers such as Jeremy Scott and Henrik Viskov, Faustine Steinmetz established her label back in 2013. Every piece in her collection is created in line with her belief of quality craftsmanship over trend.
Steinmetz’ signature is her use of incredible handmade denim (which we love, of course), which is often paired with classic white shirts or more feminine pieces, like we saw in both her Autumn/Winter 2017 and Spring/Summer 2018 last year.
Definitely one of the most exciting brands appearing at London Fashion Week this year is London based womenswear label, Fyodor Golan.
Owners Fyodor Podgorny and Golan Frydman’s background in Fine Art shines through in their collections. Bringing together bold colours, innovative fabrics and elements of modern sportswear aesthetics, the label have continuously found new ways to combine different textures.
A few of our favourite celebrities have also been spotted in outfits from Fyodor Golan, including the likes of Rihanna, Rita Ora, and Karolina Kurkova.
Malone graduated from Central Saint Martins in 2014 and soon after, launched his first collection for A/W 2015. So while A/W ‘18 may only be his seventh season, Richard Malone’s rebellious label is one to watch at London Fashion Week this year.
Malone takes a lot of his inspiration from his hometown of Wexford, Ireland, combining the diversity of the women he’d meet in his local pub with the rebellion of Ireland’s working class teenagers. Malone explores what he describes as “weird contrasts” in the clothing he creates, designing pieces that are transformative, but functional.
Speaking of innovative new characters on the fashion scene, have you met Sid? We guarantee you’ll love Sid’s unique approach to bedroom design more than our tenuous link to LFW. Sid is genuinely defining bedroom fashion, challenging the way you think when it comes to bed design.
We’ll stop now and let Sid do the talking.
