The Biggest Trends You Will Be Wearing This Fall

Known for rebellious street styles and bold imaginations that often blur the line between art and fashion, London Fashion Week exudes an attitude that’s young, fearless and super-charged energetically. The AW23 collections presented during LFW this season see some of the biggest, and most original, trends that you will be loving this fall.

Mould-breaking, city-inspired designs

Love her or hate her (designs), Mowalola is a designer/brand that you simply can’t ignore. Breaking Instagram as one of the most viewed shows during London Fashion Week — the show took place off-schedule at the basement of University of Westminster — even Snoop Dogg can’t resist posting a reel about it. Complementing the Marmite-esque, reimagined super-low-hung pants and the New York City-inspired styles are out-of-this-world face and body art created by celebrity makeup genius Isamaya Ffrench.

Ffrench, known for her audacious and innovative take on beauty and makeup, creates a mix of fake freckles all over the face, combined with LED-lights strategically placed on models’ faces and bodies to drive home the theme “Dark Web” as envisioned by Mowalola.

JW Anderson, on the other hand, pays homage to the contemporary dancer Michael Clark, whose work often intersects with fashion. For the AW23 collection, Anderson makes heavy reference to modern city living by reimagining styles from archives of both Clark’s and his own, including a dress prominently displaying Tesco logo and form-fitting pullovers with thought-provoking messages.

Soft coloring and textures

Romance is still trending, according to Susan Fang and Bora Aksu.
