The British Fashion Council has confirmed London Fashion Week will take place on September 16-20, but Burberry is bowing out and brands have been advised to cancel any “non-essential” events.
A pared-back London Fashion Week will go ahead next week but will lose one of its biggest names after Burberry said it is cancelling its show following the death of Queen Elizabeth II on September 8.
In a statement released on Thursday evening, shortly after the announcement of the Queen’s death, the British Fashion Council (BFC) said: “London Fashion Week is a business-to-business event, and an important moment for designers to show their collections at a specific moment in the fashion calendar, we recognise the work that goes into this moment.

“Therefore, shows and presentations of collections can continue, but we are asking that designers respect the mood of the nation and period of national mourning by considering the timing of their image release.” The BFC has recommended postponing or cancelling “non-essential” events like parties and openings as a mark of respect and will pause its own communication channels, or dedicate them to the Queen, until after the 10-day period of mourning.
Burberry said on Thursday evening it will not move ahead with its Spring/Summer 2023 show on 17 September “as a mark of respect”.
The date of the Queen’s funeral is yet to be confirmed. It is expected to take place around 10 days after her death, on either 18 or 19 September. Shows set to take place on the day of the Queen’s funeral “will need to be rescheduled”, the BFC recommended in the statement. The BFC also advises that designers with retail stores “may want to consider 24[-hour] immediate closure, black armbands for staff and closure on the day of the funeral”.
Prior to the news of the Queen’s death, London was gearing up for its biggest fashion week in three years, with both established and emerging designer brands returning to the schedule after pandemic-related disruptions.
Designers currently scheduled to show on 18 September — 10 days from the Queen’s death — include Nensi Dojaka, 16 Arlington, Rejina Pyo, Halpern, Simone Rocha, Erdem, Stefan Cooke and Richard Quinn; shows scheduled for 19 September include Christopher Kane, Roksanda and Chopova Lowena. A representative for Purple PR, which is overseeing Yuhan Wang and David Koma’s shows on 18 September, said the shows will not take place or be made public if the funeral is scheduled for the same day.
In the aftermath of the Queen’s passing, tributes poured in from the fashion industry, including the BFC, Burberry and Christopher Kane. The London Fashion Week website was updated with the message: “It was a great honour in 2018 to host Her Majesty at London Fashion Week to launch the QEII Award for British Design, which recognises design excellence and positive impact. Her Majesty’s effortless style, charm and sense of fun were evident, and her passion for supporting young creatives will continue to inspire the next generation.”

The 27 Best Modest Looks from London Fashion Week Fall 2022 Ready-to-Wear

The 27 Best Modest Looks from London Fashion Week Fall 2022 Ready-to-Wear

With Storm Eunice wreaking havoc in London, fashion week continued with a mix of physical and digital shows, and designers showcasing their own brand of organized chaos. Upcycling and recycling emerged as major themes of this leg of the fall 2022 fashion month, and runways saw a number of colorful patchwork pieces and uplifting new silhouettes. While these would feel right at home on a modestly dressed influencer’s Instagram feed, they were also practical enough to keep warm in, once the mercury drops.
Matty Bovan showcased de- and reconstructed bomber jackets and parkas, and Conner Ives catered to the Gen-Z with leisure suits, and silk-fringed dresses and skirts, while Elleme brought forth risqué corsetry, made winter-appropriate—and modest—by way of unconventional layers. Nensi Dojaka, the current winner of the LVMH Prize and the designer known for her daring, lingerie-based aesthetic, widened her horizons by presenting a few demure outfits centered around puffer jackets and knitwear. Bahraini label Noon By Noor flew the flag for the region by including a variety of conservative options in its fall collection that flowed seamlessly between sportswear and couture.
A few designers also worked with their strengths in new ways. At Molly Goddard, her colorful ruffled and poodle skirts, and long fishtail dresses came with sensible outerwear and snug layers. Simone Rocha’s lace-trimmed dresses layered over other dresses were contrasted with biker jackets, and Richard Quinn’s signature head-to-toe florals and maximalist silhouettes were further exaggerated. Venturing further into tailoring, Emilia Wickstead’s modest offerings included double-breasted long coats and slightly oversized suits, and Roksanda’s blazers paired with fluid dresses and puffy volumes.

Designers behind Bahraini label Noon by Noor, cousins Shaikha Noor Al Khalifa and Shaikha Haya Al Khalifa, have announced a special initiative for Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The brand has partnered with Think Pink – Bahrain Breast Cancer Society, a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting breast cancer awareness, education, and research in the country.
As part of the collaboration, the brand will donate 10% of its e-commerce sales towards Think Pink, and offer free shipping on online orders to customers for the entire month of October.

Founded in 2004, Think Pink has been actively raising funds to support breast cancer awareness, education, and research. The organization’s mission states that it “aims to empower people at grass root levels through collaboration with local affiliates to continue to promote the importance of education and screening programs and community-based outreach projects.”
Noon by Noor’s aesthetic is a fusion of understated luxury and poised femininity. The label is known for its timeless and wearable pieces with meticulous construction and details such as tailored blazers, and crisp cotton shirts. Most recently, the brand made its London Fashion Week debut, with a collection titled ‘Light’. The collection drew inspiration from pearl divers in Bahrain and consisted of flowing slip dresses, suiting with a fluid touch, in a muted color palette.

All the Highlights from London Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2022

All the Highlights from London Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2022

The spring/summer 2022 London fashion week seemed to be all about offering fresh new takes. A closer at the collections reveals the presence of the “man’s suit” in a lot of them as the silhouette passed through the hands of various designers. Edward Crutchley summarized the look of the “woman in charge” in puffed sleeves and straight-legged pants, while Elleme showcased a version ideal for her day off. Osman Yousefzada, Palmer Harding, Victoria Beckham, Noon By Noor, and Vivienne Westwood also had their fair share of playing around with the suit.
The playful spirit of these designers also shone through with the colorful paint splash technique. Halpern gave us an exclusive look at what it means to simply have fun; Anne Mason, Eirinn Haylow, and Roksanda appeared to splatter the entire paint bucket on their garments; while Lupe Gajardo merely dipped hers into it. Feathers — lots of them — are also having their time in the sun as showcased by David Coma, Huishan Zhang, and Sharon Wauchob’s daring takes. However, what is most noteworthy, are the rounded shapes that came down the runway — from Richard Quinn’s yellow rounds to Halpern’s walking crystal ball.
