Fashion Forward : Lama Jouni: “I always wanted to showcase my work to the UK market, to finally be able to do that is big step for my brand, as I feel like I am ready to introduce my work to a wider audience that I relate too so much. This Autumn/Winter 17 collection is very close to my heart, I have drawn inspiration from the different countries that shaped my personality and I am very excited that this will be my platform for showcasing my first collection at LFW.”

Malan Breton “The colour palette for London and the patterns are reminiscent of Chinese watercolours and imperial prints in wood stain colours, and classic green, with tonal elements of pewter and apricot. The silhouettes are like liquid, second skins to the body, the suiting details inspired by pagodas in Taiwan, and an ode to the future, in an Orwellian fantasy...”
Hallie Sara, New York City based luxury label debuts at London Fashion Week with a "covetable" AW17 collection, a wearable approach to contemporary luxury design. The sumptuous collection is hand crafted from the finest materials available by skilled artisans upholding couture traditions in a range of beautiful bold earth and jewel tones melding together into an interchangeable wardrobe. Hallie Sara's signature style has gained a devout following since the brand's debut in 2011.
In a stagnant sea of block colours, clean lines and cold geometric shapes, Dans La Vie refreshingly stands out with it’s rebellious nature of clashing prints, hues and textures. Designer Rira Sugwara says she has consistently used prints in her collections as she wants to push the boundaries of what is considered beauty. She wants to redefine the norm, by creating a collection made of adventurous combinations of animal prints and discording florals.
