London Fashion Week Spring 2016: 7 Designers You Need to Know

If you think that after nearly eight days of New York Fashion Week we’ve had enough designer delights for one month—think again! Next up is London, and we’ll be on the ground scouting all the hottest dresses and making note of the stars sitting front row, of course. Here’s our mini cheat sheet for the designers who are celeb-loved and sure to put forth some red carpet-ready looks for the upcoming awards season. Keep your eyes peeled!


Emilia Wickstead
Gigi Hadid caused a stir in her Emilia Wickstead gown at the 2015 MTV VMAs last month, and she’s not the first celeb to stun in one of the Kiwi designers crafted looks. Elizabeth Banks is a devoted fan and we might expect to see her in this designer at least once on the Mocking Jay press tour.

Simone Rocha
The runway to red carpet transition is effortless for celebs when they’re wearing Simone Rocha. Keira Knightley hid her early baby bump beautifully under a floral, feathered confection by the legacy designer (dad is designer John Rocha). Red carpet fans also include Lady GagaMichelle Monaghan and Dianna Agron.


House of Holland
Bold, bright and certainly not for the faint-of-heart, Henry Holland’s kooky collections are always a London Fashion Week highlight. No surprise that fans include Miley Cyrus and Rita Ora.


Beloved by the Brat Pack and their big sisters alike, Topshop has moved beyond its ’90s station as a Brit high street staple to becoming an international celeb go-to for everything from fine knit crop tops to red carpet frocks. With stylish brand ambassadors and collaborators including Kendall Jenner and Kylie JennerCiara,Hailey Baldwin and Cara Delevingne, we’re hoping for a packed front row!


Mary Katrantzou
Kerry Washington‘s wardrobe is bursting with the Greek designer’s pretty prints and structured midis, but she’s not the only Hollywood star who has fallen for Mary Katrantzou. Lily James and Lizzy Caplan were both spotted in the designer’s most recent collection and with Diane Kruger’s vote, that’s all the star approval we need.


We would die and go to fashion heaven if we got to sit next to Kate Middleton at London Fashion Week, and considering Erdem’s intricate and elegant designs, this is the show we think she might go to. The Duchess of Cambridge is not the only royal that regularly rocks the label either—we’ll be on the lookout for Emilia Clarke, a.k.a. Game of Throne‘s Khaleesi, too.


Christopher Kane
FKA twigs certainly caused a stir when she stepped out on the 2015 Met Gala carpet wearing one of Christopher Kane’s runway designs (and a certain Robert Pattinson on her arm). Always erring on the edgier side of fashion, he’s the perfect designer for style heros like Poppy DelevingneNaomie Harris and Emma Watson. Naturally, we can’t wait for the spring-summer 2016 collection.
