Brits, iPods and Teen Nostalgia: Your Definitive Recap of London Fashion Week FW24

Featuring the likes of inclusivity queen Sinead O’Dwyer, rising star Kazna Asker and more.

The Fall/Winter 2024 season of London Fashion Week has officially come to an end and as always, guests were treated to a variety of high-octane showcases by both established and emerging designers. Fan favorites like Chet Lo, Simone Rocha and David Koma made triumphant returns to the runway while emerging labels like Sinead O’Dwyer, Sinead Gorey and Susan Fang kept us talking thanks to inclusive casting, immersive set design and vibrant soundtracks.

Elsewhere, this season saw showcases from brands like Dilara Findikoglu, Di Petsa and Yuhan Wang alongside a slew of presentations and events, like Kazna Asker‘s poignant presentation and Burberry‘s iconic after-party. Ahead, we revisit some of our favorite moments from LFW this season because, this time, it really was a big one.

Scroll down to see the biggest moments from LFW FW24, including the best staging, most inclusive show and our honorable mentions.

Most Talked About Show: Dilara Findikoglu

Dilara Findikoglu drew us into a world dictated by the divine feminine, with her show notes stating, “A world built by the hands of men is destined for destruction.” Hari Nef opened the show and Richie Shazam walked the runway, with the remaining eerie, unsettling showcase featuring looks like “Cleopatra As A CEO,” “Breaking The Law” and “Dressing For Pleasure.” If haunted houses were high-fashion, it would be Dilara Findikoglu through and through.

Best Staging and Set Design: SRVC

The FW24 showcase, dubbed “Human Resource”, took place on a London bus and was all about celebrating the function and purpose of commuting, bringing societal voyeurism to the forefront. “When we go to work we want to feel our most together, we want to feel our most secure and powerful. I want to create garments that make women feel like, whatever they’re doing, they are the most important person in the room. Not to appease others, but for themselves,” says creative director Ricky Wesley Harriott.

Best Soundtrack: Sinead Gorey

Reimagining the “British teenage experience,” Gorey’s high-octane, pop-infused showcase recreated typical schoolgirl archetypes, drawing from her own vibrant adolescence. Alongside her own reinterpretation of classic school tartans, Gorey’s show featured nostalgic accessories like iPod shuffle clips, jelly spike nails and fashion royalty, Bimini Bon Boulash, not forgetting the stellar soundtrack which included musical icons Sugababes, The Prodigy and Lily Allen.

Most Inclusive: Sinead O’Dwyer

For the FW24 season, the Irish-born, London-based creative took inspiration from the corporate world, “twisting aesthetic codes” of traditional corporate dressing and pushing the brand’s signature techniques to new lengths, with yet another impeccably inclusive cast.

Honorable Mentions: Saul Nash, Yuhan Wang, Kazna Asker

Emerging designer Kazna Asker presented a politically-charged showcase dubbed “What Are We Fighting For.” Offering a continued exploration of her British-Yemeni upbringing, the young designer presented a collection of sportswear-inspired, modest looks telling a poignant story of community and culture. Elsewhere, Saul Nash honored 30 years of UK garage by collaborating with MCs and photographers, while Yuhan Wang fused classical music with the audios of iconic female lawyers — including, of course, Elle Woods.
