3 trends from Fashion Month
London Fashion week is almost over, with New York finished last week we have just Milan and Paris to go! Here is our roundup of our top 3 trends we have seen throughout Fashion month so far!
With the election of Trump and Brexit there’s a lot of changes in the political landscape at the moment, Designers are using fashion week to air their views and beliefs on the catwalk. Business of Fashion started the initiative ‘Tied Together’, asking the whole industry, no matter race, religion, sexuality or gender and wear a white bandana to celebrate diversity. What can be seen on the catwalk is brands taken a stand with different actions, such as Danish brand Munthe finishing the show with a t-shirt stating “pussy crabs back” and German brand Lala Berlin send models down the runway in knitwear and dresses with the words Change, Think and Revolution sewn onto them. In Designer Prabal Gurung’s finale he sent all the models down the runway in t-shirts with different statements on them, such as ‘The future is female” and every model had a white bandana tied around their wrists and Kanye West used a model wearing a Hijab for his Yeezy 5 show. In London Teatrum Jones had a diverse cast of models, which included two disabled models. These are just a handful of examples, as the trend is definitely the biggest one seen at the fashion weeks.

Reconstructed work wear, a lot of brands are showing of new ways to put together work wear.
