Six Up-and-Coming Designers to Watch this London Fashion Week

Each season, tastemakers look to London Fashion Week to discover the latest cutting-edge designs. A hotbed of emerging talent, London Fashion Week is where the finest new trends are set. As the glittering biannual event approaches, here are six up-and-coming designers to watch out for.

Molly Goddard 

Winner of the British Emerging Talent award at the 2016 Fashion Awards, Central Saint Martins alumnus, Molly Goddard is hot fashion property. Her clothes offer a playful take on feminine shapes and you can find her collection at Dover Street Market and Browns.

Richard Quinn

Richard Quinn’s label is barely a year old but he’s made a splash with striking collections featuring bold silhouettes and models swathed entirely in fabric from head to toe. His pretty floral prints caught Liberty’s attention, prompting a collaboration with the heritage store.

Teatum Jones

Chic, voluminous tailoring and eye-catching evening gowns in ultra-luxurious fabrics underpin duo, Teatum Jones’ modern aesthetic. You can shop their collection at Harvey Nichols in Knightsbridge.

Paula Knorr

After winning the prestigious NEWGEN award in 2015, German designer Paula Knorr has been a name to watch on the London Fashion Week schedule. Her collections feature beautifully cut and draped dresses, shirts and blouses in jewel and pastel colours.

Natasha Zinko

Natasha Zinko’s cheery colourful florals and bright check prints have captured the fashion pack’s hearts. The Ukrainian designer has been showing at London Fashion Week for two years, and her sculpted, body skimming dresses and outwear make her one of the most exciting talents.

Roberta Einer

Having worked at Alexander McQueen and Mary Katrantzou, Estonian designer, Roberta Einer has superlative credentials. Her playful multi-coloured, multi-textured separates and dresses are a medley of sequins, chiffon and embellishment.
