Fashion East FW22 Showcases London's Finest Talent

Chet Lo, Jawara Alleyne and Maximilian Davis present innovative collections.

With London Fashion Week upon us, fashion lovers have their eyes peeled and phones ready to capture the latest Fall/Winter 2022 collections at Fashion East. Led by Lulu Kennedy, Fashion East is a nonprofit incubator for emerging ingenious creatives, serving as a jumping off point for the industry’s most successful and inspiring tastemakers. Among them are Chet Lo, Maximilian Davis and Jawara Alleyne who exhibited their new range of garments in the fitting backdrop of a nightclub in Shadwell.

Continue reading to explore the designers’ FW22 collections presented at Fashion East.

Chet Lo

Loved by Euphoria’s Chloe Cherry, who was seen sporting the American designer at Fashion East, Chet Lo put on an intrinsically fun and playful show on last night’s runway, displaying an assortment of highly textural cotton candy-colored clothing, seamlessly merging rave-core with a pastel soft girl aesthetic. Lo’s signature spiky knit fabric arrives in lime green and lilac ombre asymmetrical dresses while appearing in a slightly more sophisticated cobalt blue halter gown. Keeping his collection light and joyful, Lo pairs his looks with puffy moon boots and faux fur scarves reminiscent of childhood stuffed animals.

Jawara Alleyne

Playing with fabric as well, Jawara Alleyne’s first catwalk collection perfectly highlights his expert draping techniques as his FW22 line boasted effortlessly sultry draped miniskirts and off the shoulder gowns paired with shiny Dr. Martens for a decidedly punk edge. Blending sex appeal with grunge, Alleyne pricked branded tank tops with safety pins in a circular pattern, while he referenced the shape in a chest-baring cut-out elsewhere.

Maximilian

Announced as one of the semi-finalists of this year’s LVMH Prize, Maximilian Davis lived up to his much-deserved acclaim, presenting an expansive collection of 25 looks. Using a rich palette of brown, black and white, standouts include a long-sleeved white dress, adorned with gilded thorns and a mesh window on the chest. Elsewhere, a midriff-baring black bustier paired with a mid-length chocolate brown corduroy skirt and matching leather gloves subverted our traditional expectations of sensual clothing.

The collection’s true star is a romantic yet gothic see-through lavender gown, complete with a matching hood. As the Manchester-born designer explained in his show’s notes, the look has subtle spiritual connotations, writing, “My family wanted to have something to follow, which is in line with the importance religion holds for so many Black families. Ever since slavery, Black communities have looked to God for strength, for a belief that this will all come to an end, for security and guidance.”
