Somerset House is quiet, tents around the city have come down and the editors, buyers and bloggers have decamped to Milan. After five fashion-packed days featuring collections from more than 120 designers, Fall/Winter in London looks set to be jewel-dark, with deep wine and sapphire tones, split sleeves, caped shoulders, gothic styling and animal print, to pick out just a few of the London trends at one of the British capital's most vibrant Weeks yet. We bring you a look back at London Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2013-2014, with the best from the event and our favourite shows.
The Fashion Week Exhibition at Somerset House showcased the best of British design, with highlights including the RockVault fine jewellery room with designers like Jo Hayes Ward, who uses 3D printing techniques to make her moulds, resulting in precisely tessellated designs; and Imogen Belfield, whose chunky, organic rock forms make for striking heavy metal pieces. The Headonism event, curated by milliner Steven Jones featured young hat makers from British design schools, with the delicate wooden headpieces by Emma Yeo standing out for us. Over in the East wing, we saw stylised Asian-inspired prints from Huishan Zhang, towering heels in candy colours from Sophia Webster and down tempo tailoring from Palmer//Harding, as the cream of this year's fashion crop
Flick through our gallery for our pick of the best of the shows.
