One thing was clear from London Fashion Week Spring 2017: fashion isn’t Brexiting anytime soon. Strong collections from established and emerging designers attest to the long line of talent that shows in the UK. Storied houses like Burberry implemented new practices like gender-blurring designs and see-now, shop-now strategies. Breakout designers like Molly Goddard and Marques’Almeida continued to find new ways to deconstruct and reenvision styles for the runway. Then there were the front rows full of celebrities and the great street style that just gets better during Fashion Week.
Here are some of our favorite moments and the most memorable trends from LFW Spring 2017.

Known for her cheeky accessories, Charlotte Olympia put on a sexy show to celebrate her spring collection, inspired by the Copacabana Club. Fruity props and Carmen Miranda tunes filled the Sheraton Grand Park Lane Hotel’s Art Deco ballroom in London. The ’40s-themed dinner club setting perfectly set the stage for Olympia’s kitschy new platforms and stilettos, sure to put a spring in the step of wearers and a smile on admirers’ faces.
