London Fashion Week autumn 16: the top 10 shows

Drapers rounds up the most influential shows of the autumn 16 edition of London Fashion Week.

Despite an element of uncertainty hanging over London Fashion Week following the recent announcement by some brands, including Burberry, that they plan to disrupt the traditional show schedule with new consumer-focused see-now, buy-now catwalk formats, this autumn 16 edition was full of strong, inspiring and individualistic collections.

There was a sense of feminine romance permeating several of the standout collections from both big businesses and emerging brands. Sometimes they had a retro air, evocative of bygone eras including the 1920s, 1930s and 1970s, or a darker and moodier sense of faded glamour.

Demure dresses caught the eye, flounced with frills and ruffles alongside cosy, covetable coats and capes. Fancy fabrics and crafty finishes were also key, including textural tweeds, jazzy jacquards and plush velvets finessed with trailing ribbons, fluffy feathers and sparkling embellishments and embroideries.
