London Fashion Week: Womenswear
Representing our exhilarating, eclectic city from afarRead more
Ever the nonconformist, this year London Fashion Week’s resilient nature works in its favour. This season, shows are being brought to you online, from a world increasingly so. London Fashion Week has always been inventive, forward-thinking and eccentric – here Liberty guides you through our favourite labels that represent the city that we love.
Beloved Turkish-British designer Erdem Moralioglu designs Erdem from his studio in East London. His vision of womenswear is wildly romantic and steeped in nostalgia – a vision of a long-forgotten England, or perhaps one that only exists in his imagination. Untamed, melodramatic florals are harnessed by the elegance of the designer’s silhouettes – a label to fall in love in.
The Vampire's Wife
Being married to Nick Cave, rock-and-roll’s Prince of Darkness, gives The Vampire’s Wife designer Susie Cave a unique insight into the gothic side of romance. Eerie and exquisite, The Vampire’s Wife gowns are equally at home on a horror movie ingénue or current-day movie star. No detail is too decadent – frills, bows, velvet and silk make up the brand’s iconic dress silhouette.
Korean-born, London-based designer Rejina Pyo has a Midas touch for creating It-pieces. Her statement silhouettes and optimistic colour palettes have been snapped up by editors and celebrities alike. The designer clashes antique detailing against clean, architectural lines, always with a hint of the unexpected – aesthetics echoed by the ever-changing city in which she built her brand.
