London Fashion Week Begins With Tributes To Queen Elizabeth

From an all-black opening look to a model holding a photo of Queen Elizabeth II, London Fashion Week celebrated the late Queen as fashionistas paid their respects during a period of national mourning.

Organizers announced last week that London Fashion Week will be held as a “business-to-business event” while honoring royal protocol and honoring the Queen, who died at 96 on September 8.

The party has been postponed and the show for Monday, the day of the Queen’s state funeral, has been rescheduled.

Big brands like Burberry and Raf Simons, one of the most anticipated highlights of the season, pulled out of the Sept. 16-20 event, but that’s hard to do for smaller brands. That’s it.

“Therefore, the shows and presentations, the business-to-business part where designers present their collections to international media, retailers and stylists, are part of the global fashion calendar. It cannot be moved,” says Caroline Rush, chief executive of the British Fashion Council, told newsmen.

“London is an incredibly creative business, a platform for a lot of independent businesses and they are already committed to spending, so we need to make sure we are supporting them so they can continue.”

Among the planned tributes will include a book of condolences from the fashion industry shared with the royal family, with fashionistas in front of Christopher Kane on Sunday night at 8pm (1900 GMT). Participate in a moment of national reflection (one minute of silence).

On Thursday night, designer Daniel W. Fletcher held a minute’s silence before sending out the first models in black suits and black armbands.

Fletcher told London’s Evening Standard newspaper, “In launching the event, I thought it was important to commemorate the moment.

Spanish sustainable brand SoHuman closed Friday’s show with models. Their eye makeup was smeared as if they were crying, they held a picture of Elizabeth in their hands, and drew a picture of a crown or “RIP” on their hands.

Designer Javier Aparici’s colorful collection consisted of dresses in bold colors and floral prints.
