London Fashion Week A|W 15
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!
