This year London Fashion Weekend took place at the Saatchi Gallery from 24 to 27 September.
Many cutting-edge designers from London Fashion Week graced the catwalk: Issa, House of Holland, Peter Pilotto and Christopher Raeburn. In contrast to the designers who all show their own collections, the Trend Catwalk Shows were presented by VeryExclusive.co.uk. Four key Autumn/Winter trends were chosen, all of them including pieces of international designers and high street brands like See by Chloé, T by Alexander Wang or Marc Jacobs. Animal Prints, marsala tones, retro pieces out of the seventies and punky styles are must-haves for the season.
