At Home with Erdem For his Fall 2015 show, Erdem transformed his runway into a filled-to-the-brim mid-century home with the help of set designer Robin Brown. The designer sprinkled his own paintings, photographs, magazines, and photo albums throughout the set to create a personal feel.

Burberry’s Best At Burberry’s Fall 2015 show, current faces of the brand’s campaigns—Kate Moss, Cara Delevingne, Jourdan Dunn, and Naomi Campbell (arriving late to see only the last few looks)—sat front row along with Mario Testino, singing along to singer Clare Maquire’s rendition of George Harrison’s “My Sweet Lord.”

Blast from the Past J.W. Anderson’s Fall 2015 collection explores the world of 1980’s party girls – with printed lame, crushed velvet, Lurex knits, colorful slouchy boots, and geometric waist synching belts. We particularly loved the retro beats by D.J. Michel Gaubert.

Turning 10 Celebrating his eponymous label’s 10th anniversary as well as his homecoming to London Fashion Week, Gareth Pugh opened his Fall 2015 show with a film directed by friend Ruth Hogben featuring a red-clad model cutting her hair and taking a bath in preparation for battle, which set the tone for a collection of medieval warriors.

Freak Out Sophia Webster showed her new collection in a presentation called “Freak Like Me.” After weaving through the crowds celebrating the Chinese New Year on the closed streets of London, we entered a fantasy world of warped patterns, circus arts, and the uncanny.

Work It Out For her Fall 2015 collection, Anya Hindmarch was inspired by a drive on the M25 – the lights, reflective surfaces, and graphic signage. It seemed fitting to have the models’ final walk set to the tune of 100 singing construction workers from the London Gay Man’s Choras.

Image Maker The Somerset House – a London Fashion Week hub – staged the UK’s largest exhibition of fashion photographer Guy Bourdin’s work, which includes over 100 pieces and never seen material from his estate.
