SS16 excitement.

After chatting about the Irish designers showing at London Fashion Week, we have to make some noise for the international names taking to the catwalk.

Christopher Bailey’s Burberry offering is always one of the major highlights while Mary Katrantzou continues to up her print game each and every season.

Here’s who to watch out for…

Jean Pierre Braganza – Friday 18th September

This London born designer has a very impressive style CV.

After graduating from Central St Martins, he went to work with Roland Mouret, where he perfected his tailoring and draping skills*

Karl Lagerfeld chose Jean as his protégé for the autumn winter 08/09 season, further cementing his reputation as a designer to be reckoned with.

Erdem – Monday 21st September

Having worked alongside esteemed designer Diane Von Furstenberg, Erdem Moralioglu is an expert in feminine florals.

The Duchess of Cambridge, Anne Hathaway and Sarah Jessica Parker have all been pictured in Erdem and his attention to detail is simply exquisite.


Mary Katrantzou – Sunday 20th September 

The Greek fashion designer is renowned for her kaleidoscopic prints and use of vibrant colours.

This year, she won the 2015 Designer Fashion Fund, a bursary initiative from Vogue UK and the British Fashion Council, beating off competition from Sophia Webster, Emilia Wickstead and Holly Fulton.

Cara Delevingne, Suki Waterhouse and Jourdan Dunn often walk for Burberry with musical entertainment provided by up and coming musical talent such as James Bay and Rhodes.

Peter Pilotto – Monday 21st September

Another label revered for beautiful prints is Peter Pilotto.

Pilotto and his design partner, Christopher de Vos, have achieved considerable success with their structured sculptural designs.

Oh and the always stylish Diane Kruger is also a fan just in case you needed another reason to acquaint yourself with the delight that is PP.
