London Fashion Week is always spectacular, but you know it’s truly something special when you have Queen Elizabeth II sat in the front row! She attended the Richard Quinn show, but which other shows got everyone talking?

Here’s a rundown of our favourite catwalks from the event:
On Day Two, Burberry brought colour to the catwalk! Fusing stand-out shades onto contemporary casual wear, Burberry retained its image as a forward-thinking, urban brand.
Key pieces that caught our eye included blush-pink sweaters, scarlet jackets and chunky lemon jumpers. For an extra splash of colour, Burberry showcased rainbow sparkles and multi-coloured gilets. This was creative director Christopher Bailey’s final show for Burberry, and he dedicated his last collection to: “the best and brightest organisations supporting LGBTQ rights around the world”. Once most famous for its traditional beige checks and trench coats, Burberry’s intelligent use of colour and drive for hyper-modern street wear and athleisure clothing has made it one of London Fashion Week’s standout shows.
How can you get Burberry’s catwalk look? Start by choosing bright colours and bold prints. Select contemporary athleisure styles — such as bomber jackets and oversized sweatshirts — and never shy away from check prints and the streamlined silhouette of a vintage trench coat.
