Straight from New York to London, here are my favourite collections from our country’s very own fashion week.

One of my favourite designers over the recent seasons is the amazing David Koma. Recently appointed as artistic director at Thierry Mugler, the designer once again showed off his many talents within his own collection, giving us a glimpse at what we could expect for his debut mainline collection for Mugler. Stepping slightly outside of his usual comfort zone, Koma’s latest designs consisted of soft silhouettes with fluidity in the designs, yet kept to his signature style of adding angular cuts and bodycon fits. The combination of black and white mixed with lemon yellow and shades of blue created an eye-catching palette. Asymmetric necklines, sheer panelling, cut-outs and tailoring; there is nothing we don’t adore about this collection.

The Queen of print herself, Mary Katrantzou, wowed us more than ever this season with an exquisite collection; possibly named as her best yet. As she began to move away from her stereotypical printed designs last year, the designer once again continued with this and produced a collection of immaculately embellished designs. With the inspiration of a prehistoric land, this was apparent throughout all of her latest work, with extremely intricate detailing representing broken up islands of the world, revealing a background of sheer nude; highly worked beading and embroidery to create prehistoric creatures upon her designs; layers upon layers of luxurious fabrics; this collection was sure to be the envy of fashion world.

The most British of all brands, and the epitome of London Fashion Week, Burberry once again stole the limelight. It’s the show that attracts the crème de la crème of the fashion world, both on and off of the catwalk, with Cara Delevingne, Kate Moss and Mario Testino sat front row, model Malaika Firth opened the show in a wasp-waisted denim jacket in indigo blue, lined with white sheepskin. Denim jackets seemed to be the key aspect of Christopher Bailey’s designs for the brand this season; all lined and cut in alternate versions. Worn beneath the jackets were delicate and light tulle dresses in jewelled tones with variances of pleats and twists added to the designs. Statement prints of slogans and insects and trainers worn with these immaculate garments gave this typically British brand an exciting modern twist.
