It takes a lot of planning when it comes to London Fashion Week – I mean you get bloggers who plan their calendars around the dates! And why not, it’s a great time to show, see and appreciate talent. It’s seen as a global fashion stage for new talent as we have seen from the likes of Christopher Kane to Sophia Webster.
So let’s crack on and get started with the four up and coming designers from London Fashion Week to watch out for from the AW16 show.
Clio Peppiatt is a London based Womenswear Designer. After graduating from Ravensbourne University with a degree in Fashion Print and Womenswear she launched her label in 2014. She has become one of the hot tickets for London Fashion Week with her theatrical presentations from inspirations of movies such as The Grand Budapest Hotel to American Horror Story.
This year it was all about the bunny shoes that took the limelight. How cute are these.
Danielle Romeril was born in Dublin, she studied fashion design in Limerick School of Art and Design, graduating in 2007. Throughout breaks in her studies Danielle broadened her experience by working with Sharon Wauchob in Paris and Sinha-Stanic in London.
In 2007 Danielle made a permanent move to London and continued her education with a Masters degree from the Royal College of Art London in 201.
The presentation was all about playing with proportions as well as textures too. From old school glamour jackets which have been cut out and trimmed, to beauty looks having that edgy proportion look.

Inspired by the likes of Amy Johnson and Amerlia Earhard, Judy Wu is all about femininity and the strength of women on the catwalk to show a strong, driven and beautiful collection that combined tailoring with fluid draping.
Not only was it about the clothes but the make up to showcase bold, strong women. Wu, launched her eponymous label in 2013, and has fast become a designer to watch for her ability to balance artistry with wearability.

Last but not least we have –
West London native Molly Goddard began to specialise in traditional hand-craft techniques such as hand pleating, smocking and crocheting during her BA in Fashion Knit at Central St Martins.
For autumn/winter 2016, the NewGen supported designer, known for her chiffon princess dresses, put on a party with models dancing and twirling around the piano. Once again her collection is filled with whimsical dresses made out of reams and reams of tulle, but there was also satin slips, long-sleeved shirts and skirts.
So there we have it -four UK designers to keep an eye out from LFW.
