Revisiting Our Favourite Looks From London Fashion Week

Every year, in the latter half of September, designers, models, celebs, fangirls/boys, bloggers, PRs, burnouts, chancers and wannabes flood to the capital for London Fashion Week.

Despite occasionally posting about hijabi models – like our fave, Halima Aden – or next-big-thing designers – like Project Runway star, Ayana Ife – the press team at LFW are yet to offer Ummahsonic media passes for the hottest catwalk shows, therefore denying us the chance to ham it up with fashion icons like the less famous Delevingne sister, national treasure Gemma Collins off TOWIE, or Anna Wintour.

Still, the internet can be a good friend during fashion week (and the 51 other weeks of the year!!) so we’ve scoured social media for some of our favourite looks from LFW. Next year, maybe we’ll be able to share our own photos from the front row, but until we’re included in the pantheon of sartorial taste-makers next to Vogue, Rihanna, and the free fashion mag you get on the tube (Stylist?) you’ll have to make do with stuffed we’ve scraped off Instagram.

First up, Edeline Lee, a designer who included a hijabi model in her show. Take a look at some of the IG posts:

We really like the understated style of Edeline’s designs. However, the arrangement of the models – one sitting, one standing, both looking into the middle distance – is all a bit too waiting-in-the-vet’s-lobby-to-hear-if-your-cat’s-made-it-through for us.

Next, we really liked this girl’s OOTD:

This was a good look, too:

We love how hijabs are slowly becoming a fixture at Fashion Week, and not an oddity that pops up rarely, and much to everyone’s surprise. After all, the fashion on the streets should be reflected on the catwalk.

If you know of anyone else who totally slayed at London Fashion Week, please let us know. Or better yet, if you can cop us any (free) tix for next year’s event, slide in our DMs asap.

Who knows how epic our Ummahsonic LFW round up blogs will be when we’re actually sitting front row on the catwalk.

Fingers crossed!
