The CSM at LFW A|W15

London Fashion Week A|W 15

Published in Fashion.

The prestigious London Fashion Week came back for it’s first time in 2015, to forecast the future of fashion and tell us what will be popular this Autumn|Winter. As always with London, artist design and the avant garde drove the event forward – it’s the creative capital for a reason! This included millinery, with head-pieces being the focal point of many collections and here were our favourites:

At Pam Hogg, you are to expect theatrics but this season - it was the head-pieces that took centre stage on her runway. Each model was a fantasy character, with the hat being the focus of attention and bringing life to the rest of the outfit - this proves that if you want to stand out, a hat will help you get there!

Skate subculture visuals and imagery were present in Ashley William's fun A|W15 collection. The young collection featured bright hues and on trend shapes and each look was accompanies by the stylish bucket hat - which was given an Ashley twist by being over-sized and made of fur!

London Fashion Week is an intensely curious place for design and expressing art through fashion, millinery has become a big part of that. Seen here is Gareth Pugh A|W15 which included this black visor with an extravagant 3D attached which almost turns the wearer into a question mark. It might not be your every-day wear but in moments like this, Gareth is telling the watchers something - with his design.

Every season at Somerset House, there is a British Fashion Council initiative called Headonism - curated by Stephen Jones, the room shows off the best new millinery brands in the UK. This isn't the showy head-pieces you might see on the runway, but the hats which give life to the women of every-day in new ways, this season it included LOVEHAT's very own Noel Stewart & Keely Hunter!
