Huishan Zhang has cornered the market in dreamy dresses. Which is actually something of a surprise to see in London, home of the loud and the bold and the student crazy. Not him.

Huishan Zhang has cornered the market in dreamy dresses. Which is actually something of a surprise to see in London, home of the loud and the bold and the student crazy. Not him. He does romance, he does elegance and he does delicate femininity. Pre-show and this can all be gracefully seen as his confectionary creations line the corridor. There are pearl-laden gowns, the flickering of feathers,...

Fall/Winter 2017: what is it all about? Since September the world has plummeted into yet more disarray; we tried the see-now-buy-now thing, which has further made designers rethink the how, what and why when it comes to presenting their collections; and we’ve become accustomed to certain fashion...
Fall/Winter 2017: what is it all about? Since September the world has plummeted into yet more disarray; we tried the see-now-buy-now thing, which has further made designers rethink the how, what and why when it comes to presenting their collections; and we’ve become accustomed to certain fashion aesthetics (you know the ones). All of which equates to the lead-up to this season and what was...

At some point overnight, between London's second and third day of shows, things change. (This season, to be honest, it changed a little earlier; late on Saturday evening, around the time Donatella Versace unleashed her latest pedal-to-the-metal Versus collection, packed to the gills with supermodels - including a brace of Hadids closing the show). The blow dries get sleeker, the fleets of...

"Does anyone know where Paul Smith is?” someone asked in the audience before the Chalayan show. It was a serious question; as one of the most successful British designers of the last half-century, Smith has long been a stalwart of the London schedule. Everything changes, though; this January, he showed both menswear and womenswear on a Paris catwalk. But that was a month ago. And inevitably,...

The last thing anyone expects from London Fashion Week - either on the catwalk, or off it - is sunshine. Especially in the middle of February. And especially at the start of an era that's already shaping up to be one of the most volatile and uncertain in recent memory. In New York, the winter collections (or at least, the perception of them) were shrouded in politics and pessimism. But London,...

NYFW was politically charged this year, and rightfully so. With everything going on at home and abroad since the US presidential election, how could NYFW not take a stance? With a gamut of themes going from feminism to patriotism, and much in between, some designers voiced their position more symbolically, taking a stance without necessarily politicizing their runways or their statements while...

Fashion and art has been a long standing relationship, and that designers would be inspired by art and artists themselves makes complete sense. Their respective mediums, their love for colors and proportions, the manner in which they interpret and shape reality, their lifestyles and the social circles they move in; it's all been very overlapped and incestuous for many, many moons.   The...
