FASHION | #LFW SS14 : Exhibition


It’s the seasonal highlight of Britain’s fashion calendar and London Fashion Week returned this September to debut some of the finest SS14 collections.

I attended on behalf of Fashion Prive attended the exhibition at the capital’s iconic Somerset House and joined the swarm of press and buyers perusing the exhibited collections of clothing, accessories and jewellery.

The exhibit is segregated across two floors into a number of different areas including a number of specially curated showrooms.

THE ROCK VAULT, curated by Stephen Webster, is where the jewellery designers gather with collections ranging from delicate and minimalist to extravagant opulence  




HEADONISM is the British Fashion Council’s millinery wonderland where remarkable and contrasting collections of headwear were displayed.

Further down Somerset House’s corridors was the ESTETHICA exhibition and lounge where ethical and sustainably minded designers and brands showcased their green pieces.


 

 Bottletop are a popular accessories brand which use recycled ring pulls to create fabulous accessories!

Having supported emerging talent since 2002, Topshop’s NEWGEN area was a delectable treat for those hungry for the future of fashion. 

 Sophia Webster was the name on everybody’s lips when it came to footwear this fashion week.

Current recipients of the NEWGEN scheme for SS14 include  J.JS Lee, Lucas Nascimento, Marques' Almeida,  Sister by Sibling, 1205, Nasir Mazhar, Sophia Webster andLiam Fahy.

The first floor was dedicated to Ready-to-Wear designers from emerging to luxe.


Outside in the BFC Courtyard Show Space both the stylish and the spotters gathered in between shows amongst the flash of cameras and clatter of stilettos. The traditional British weather certainly didn’t dampen the outfits with a eclectic array of fashions being well and truly rocked.
