London Fashion Week September 2018: A Celebration of Culture, Fashion & Art for Everyone
London Fashion Week is established as one of the most creative and innovative fashion showcases in the world. Indeed, London is one of the most multicultural, vibrant and diverse cities on the planet, so no surprise. The 68th edition of London Fashion Week (September 2018) welcomed 14,000 people, including guests from over 50 countries from all five continents, to a city-wide celebration merging creative institutions, designer businesses and global brands.
Contemporary Class teamed up with London based photographer, AyoTimoty, to follow the action ‘street style’. Here are some of our favourite looks from fashion week’s best dressed guests:
The breadth of London Fashion week continues to grow; its international reach this year welcomed more than 80 designer names on the official catwalk, and over 100 brands showcasing in the Designer Showrooms. The latest annual International Passenger Survey (IPS) figures show a 4% growth in international visitors to London from 19.1m in 2016 to 19.8m in 2017 (London & Partners 2018). Spending by international visitors is also up 14% year on year to a record £13.5 billion (London & Partners 2018).
Highly anticipated shows in 2018 included Burberry’s first presentation under Riccardo Tisci, new Chief Creative Officer, Victoria Beckham who brought her show to the London schedule for the first time, ALEXACHUNG who staged a catwalk to present her new collection and Maison Margiela who presented their first full runway collection as part of LFW.
We look forward to finding out what’s in store next year.
