Your London Fashion Week Inspiration

As the fashion event of the year had its final curtain call for now, we show you how to create the hottest picks from the catwalk for a fraction of the price.

 

This installation of Fashion Week saw an explosion of colours and prints for the Spring/Summer seasons ahead for next year. We saw deep and blushing pinks from the likes of Mary Katrantzou and Roland Mouret, whilst we saw gorgeous ditsy floral prints splashed across 1950s silhouettes from Erdem. Topshop Unique delivered once again, especially with their statement coats. And how could we not leave out Cristopher Kane’s bejazzled Crocs?!

Oh Chris, just no.

First off, we have the beautiful sheer blouse from Topshop Unique. We can’t deny the detailing is to die for. The tie and cuff details can easily be replicated into your own blouse with Vogue’s blouse pattern. It contains six different types of blouses to make, all are super-easy! Find it here.

And how could we leave out this beautiful piece from Erdem? Full-bodied skirts are back next year to be perfectly paired with full-bodied cocktails and you can make them in a variety of lengths from Kwik Sew.

Full-bodied skirts get a revamp at Erdem

The skirts are the perfect example of a garment that can really be played with. Keep it simple with a soft chiffon fabric, or sex it up with a bold and daring print! Get the pattern here.

Erdem have really hit the ball out of the park this year, especially with the timeless 50s bralette silhouette.

Fun fifties bralettes make a comeback for summer

Simplicity have a fantastic range of time-inspired patterns, including the bralettes shown above. Mix it up with strap variations and don’t forget; the brighter the print, the better!

Next up, we have jumpsuits. They’re back! But did they ever actually leave our wardrobes? We saw an abundance of soft fabrics and colours in a range of playful and oh-so-serious power-suit shapes.

Mimi G has you covered for the jump (suit)

This Mini G pattern from Simplicity makes a striking comparison to Preen’s shouldered number. Whilst the busy ruffles do not feature on the Mini G creations, the prominent one shoulder detail is enough to make a statement. Get yours here.

Staying on the pink trend, we next have Anya Hindmarch’s shirt dress. Whilst we personally are not a fan, we however LOVE the embroidered detailing and general shirt trend.

Shirt dresses never go out of style. Never

This McCall’s varied shirt pattern hits all the style points! Create shirt dresses in a variety of styles and lengths to suit virtually any shape and taste. Or why not opt for a classic shirt?

Now we have coats. Who can resist a good, stylish, snug coat? Whilst Marques’ Almeida and Osman packed a punch with their double-breasted red numbers for next year, we think that these coats will make a statement all year round.

Need we say more about a double-breasted coat? Classic

Here, Vogue’s fabulous coat pattern will see you recreate the ever-timeless coat in varied lengths with the choice of statement lapels and collars. Wrap up and keep it cool!

Speaking of coats, we saw Kate Moss return to Topshop Unique’s runway show debuting a beautiful ice-clue number.

We’re keen to notice that collars are key for the season, and Butterick’s coat pattern features four statement collars to rock your spring, or even winter wardrobe. Click here to get yours.

A key look to hightlight from Fashion Week is the maxi dress. The previous boho style is now forgotten and has now taken on a modern look. Marques’ Almeida has taken the design to a whole new level by adding ruffles and fun feather fringing.

Boho maxi dresses take a glam turn

This Simplicity sewing pattern is from their Learn to Sew range, meaning anyone can sew themselves a pretty maxi dress with ease. Use scrap fabric to play around with the design and add some ruffles of your own!

Last, but certainly not least and undoubtedly a beautiful piece by Mary Katrantzou is the vintage-styled cocktail dress.

Every girl needs a classic cocktail dress

Who can resist a pretty little cocktail dress? Katrantzou has taken a classic sweetheart neckline and added some serious volume to the skirt of the dress. Recreate the volume and neckline of the pretty dress with a choice of Vogue’s vintage sewing pattern collection. Each pattern pack contains two designs to see you through the making of the dresses worthy of taking on the town. Find yours here and here.

This was just a small snippet of the amazing designs and creations to grace London Fashion Week 2017 for next year. What was your favourite look of the week? Tell us on social media!
