This weekend, London Fashion Week returned to the capital, though without the usual glitz and glam the industry is known for. Falling within the official 10-day mourning period that traditionally comes after the death of a monarch, the tone was sombre and subdued. Though, with this being the biggest LFW in years, excitement for the future of British fashion was palpable — even without big name draws like Burberry, whose show was rescheduled for 26 September, and Raf Simons who cancelled outright.
Alongside British fashion industry staples like Molly Goddard, JW Anderson, Christopher Kane and Simone Rocha, LFW SS23’s condensed schedule really packed a punch. We saw fashion be creative, sexy, fun, silly, punky, classic, messy and glamorous — and often all at once. Scroll on to see seven major trends that stood out this season.
