I'm Daisy Lowe and I've been coming to London Fashion Week for ten years.

0:00:020:00:06

But this year I'm on the lookout for new trends, and with so many

0:00:080:00:12

brilliant designers with their own unique styles, it's no easy thing.

0:00:120:00:15

I wore this to Jonathan Saunders,

0:00:160:00:19

this to the Topshop show.

0:00:190:00:21

There was one photo that was taken that I look

0:00:210:00:24

so much like I'm trying to be a Spice Girl. It's hilarious.

0:00:240:00:28

I wore this to the Stella McCartney... I love wearing Stella.

0:00:280:00:31

She's so good.

0:00:310:00:32

The lovely thing about London is that it's safe to be different.

0:00:320:00:35

It's all very individual. Very strong.

0:00:350:00:38

I was the sweatiest human in both that coat and this one.

0:00:390:00:44

It was a nightmare. Trend is sweaty.

0:00:440:00:47

If I know one thing for certain about London Fashion Week,

0:00:510:00:54

it's that we'll definitely have some fun along the way.

0:00:540:00:57

Oh, I love that!

0:00:570:00:59

So we're on the Monday of Fashion Week, it's day four.

0:01:010:01:05

We are going to go and see Erdem today,

0:01:050:01:08

Christopher Kane, Burberry's on,

0:01:080:01:10

Giles Deacon's on, and all of them are absolute trendsetters.

0:01:100:01:14

So this is what I'm going to wear for the Erdem show today.

0:01:140:01:17

It's very see through,

0:01:170:01:18

so there's going to have to be some big undies under it.

0:01:180:01:22

I'm going to get dressed now, so get out.

0:01:220:01:24

Hiya. I'm in Erdem. This is fun.

0:01:290:01:32

Bye, guys!

0:01:320:01:34

Love you!

0:01:340:01:36

We're in a rush, we've got to go. Come on. I refuse to be late.

0:01:400:01:43

- There you are. Good morning. - Good morning.

0:01:460:01:49

- How are you doing? - Good, how are you?

0:01:490:01:51

My favourite memories of London Fashion Week are walking

0:01:540:01:57

for designers who are all perfect examples of how London does

0:01:570:02:00

things differently.

0:02:000:02:01

Gareth Pugh's got to be the best I think.

0:02:010:02:04

I just ended up looking like a kind of insane porcelain doll.

0:02:040:02:07

Vivienne Westwood's first show back in London, that was pretty amazing.

0:02:070:02:12

She came in and she just looked at me and she went, "No, too normal."

0:02:120:02:16

And she just went...

0:02:160:02:18

And put all this purple down my face, but it looked amazing.

0:02:180:02:21

Pam Hogg's was pretty amazing as well.

0:02:210:02:22

- She never conforms. - Never ever conforms.

0:02:220:02:25

The three of them definitely are completely 100% themselves,

0:02:250:02:29

which is definitely what London's best at doing.

0:02:290:02:32

- We're arriving now. - We're arriving.

0:02:330:02:35

This looks pretty mental. Yep.

0:02:350:02:37

The thing about Erdem is everything's so beautifully considered.

0:03:180:03:22

And it's all very clean and just beautifully made.

0:03:230:03:28

Hi. Thank you. I loved that.

0:03:480:03:50

Hello, sweetheart. You look gorgeous.

0:03:520:03:54

What did you think of the collection?

0:03:540:03:57

I think Erdem is a really good designer and...

0:03:570:03:59

He's very consistent.

0:03:590:04:00

He's very consistent, all of his colour staples were there.

0:04:000:04:04

A bit of the Edwardiana, the flowers,

0:04:040:04:06

but it had a kind of, maybe more grandeur than it sometimes does.

0:04:060:04:10

Yeah, his florals are usually quite pretty,

0:04:100:04:12

but I think using kind of palm leaves and things were really...

0:04:120:04:15

Yeah, the dresses where you were like a walking palm tree was incredible.

0:04:150:04:19

On dresses, and it was very kind of...

0:04:190:04:21

- Just need a few balls to go to. - I know.

0:04:210:04:23

I was literally looking and going, "Where can I wear you and you,

0:04:230:04:26

"and I need one of you."

0:04:260:04:28

- Oh, well, thank you so much. - Pleasure.

0:04:280:04:31

It was lovely to see you.

0:04:310:04:32

Bye.

0:04:320:04:33

OK. Thanks, guys.

0:04:410:04:43

Where's the car?

0:04:430:04:45

I've spotted my very good friend Mr Justin O'Shea.

0:04:450:04:47

I want to talk to him away from the photographers,

0:04:470:04:50

so we're going to give him a lift to his next show.

0:04:500:04:52

- Hi! - Hi!

0:04:520:04:53

- Good hat. - You like it?

0:04:530:04:55

Check you out.

0:04:550:04:56

So what's been your highlights?

0:04:560:04:58

Well, London actually was just Erdem.

0:04:580:05:01

I mean, he's probably one of the most influential designers

0:05:010:05:04

coming from London and globally, and his show today was beyond beautiful.

0:05:040:05:09

Have you seen any similarities between the collections?

0:05:090:05:13

Everything is moving back to a more pared-back look.

0:05:130:05:15

I would completely agree.

0:05:150:05:17

I've seen a lot of '70s vibes going on this season.

0:05:170:05:20

The beauty of the '70s idea, it's like a little bit looser silhouette.

0:05:230:05:27

It's very glamorous. It's a little bit longer,

0:05:270:05:29

there's a lot of natural fabrics.

0:05:290:05:30

So who do you think are the trendsetters?

0:05:300:05:32

Do you think it's the designers or the buyers that dictate the trends?

0:05:320:05:35

Fashion is so global now

0:05:350:05:37

because of the digital stratosphere that everyone is

0:05:370:05:40

searching for their own identities and they feel that they are

0:05:400:05:43

more confident doing it because they had so much more information.

0:05:430:05:46

You know, the thing is, you come to London,

0:05:460:05:48

you live to see brands like Christopher Kane

0:05:480:05:50

and Erdem, these new generation of designers.

0:05:500:05:54

You just don't know...

0:05:540:05:55

What they're going to pull out the bag.

0:05:550:05:57

Exactly.

0:05:570:05:58

There's just enough time for a quick change before the next show.

0:06:020:06:06

And it's the big one. Christopher Kane.

0:06:060:06:08

Cool. Sweet, yeah.

0:06:340:06:37

OK. Let's pause a second.

0:06:390:06:41

There's a few things you need to know about Christopher Kane.

0:06:430:06:46

He's been adored by the fashion world ever since

0:06:460:06:48

his first show after graduating from Central St Martin's in 2006.

0:06:480:06:52

If you're looking for future trends then this is the man to look to.

0:06:520:06:55

Neon dresses, he did it first. Bodycon styling, him too.

0:06:550:07:00

He's fearless and he does not do boring.

0:07:000:07:02

Where Christopher Kane leads the fashion world follows.

0:07:020:07:04

Oh, I absolutely love Christopher. He's just so talented.

0:07:410:07:45

He seems to do three shows in one show every time.

0:07:450:07:48

He always manages to come up with something original, exciting.

0:07:480:07:51

His clothes look super chic, expensive.

0:07:510:07:53

For me it's, like, one of my favourite shows.

0:07:530:07:56

And every look that comes out is incredibly well crafted

0:07:560:07:59

and really, really feminine.

0:07:590:08:00

People are always saying, "I wonder what," before hand.

0:08:000:08:02

It's really exciting for London.

0:08:020:08:04

Have you noticed any trends this season in London Fashion Week?

0:08:140:08:19

It's funny, there's a bit of an incipient nautical thing,

0:08:190:08:21

isn't there? Christopher did it with all the knots and that kind of stuff.

0:08:210:08:25

One thing I've noticed is leg lengths, skirt lengths are going up.

0:08:420:08:46

High-waisted, A-line just above the knee skirt.

0:08:460:08:51

It'll be all over the high street in every other version.

0:08:510:08:54

Knees are out again. Damn.

0:08:540:08:55

I'm not great with knees, but, yeah, they're back.

0:08:550:08:58

A lot of really bright colours.

0:09:030:09:05

There's a lot of green, which is kind of unusual.

0:09:070:09:10

I love green.

0:09:100:09:11

There was lots of yellows and poppy colours and prints and things.

0:09:110:09:14

I think it's very feminine and very playful.

0:09:140:09:17

It is very feminine.

0:09:170:09:18

The thing about London is it's pure creativity. Constant.

0:09:180:09:22

You're bombarded with so many ideas

0:09:220:09:24

that you just feel like you're being fed.

0:09:240:09:26

Do you think that then it's quite difficult to spot a trend?

0:09:260:09:29

- London isn't about trends. - It's not.

0:09:290:09:32

It's about celebrating individuality.

0:09:320:09:34

For London, you're never going to even...

0:09:340:09:37

If you did see a trend in London, you'd be a bit like,

0:09:370:09:39

"What's happened to London?" You'd be a bit miffed by it.

0:09:390:09:42

It's nice to have a little sit-down after the Christopher Kane show.

0:09:440:09:47

These shoes are killing.

0:09:470:09:48

But it's nice to have a little reflect on

0:09:480:09:51

what everyone's been saying. As far as trends go,

0:09:510:09:53

there's been leather and lace has been very much loved,

0:09:530:09:59

it's a bit of a '70s vibe,

0:09:590:10:01

but what I found the most interesting was what Sophia said about how

0:10:010:10:05

it's really difficult to spot trends in London because everyone is

0:10:050:10:10

so purely individual and being 100% themselves,

0:10:100:10:13

and that's what makes London so brilliant.

0:10:130:10:15

Thanks, guys.

0:10:180:10:19

Trend spotting during Fashion Week isn't easy,

0:10:190:10:21

but thanks to live-stream catwalks we can find out

0:10:210:10:24

which collections are trending with the general public.

0:10:240:10:27

A few minutes away from the glamour of Fashion Week, this team

0:10:270:10:30

are analysing social media, collating every tweet, hashtag and like.

0:10:300:10:34

So this is quite literally what is trending at the moment

0:10:340:10:36

at London Fashion Week.

0:10:360:10:38

This is real-time data that's being pulled through.

0:10:380:10:40

So in particular British Vogue was retweeting

0:10:400:10:43

Marchesa's pink peonies designs that were coming out on the runway.

0:10:430:10:47

They were really stunning

0:10:470:10:48

and they really resonated with the British public.

0:10:480:10:50

So we saw stuff like that getting retweeted

0:10:500:10:52

time and time again as they were coming through.

0:10:520:10:55

Big conversations around JW Anderson's leather hats.

0:10:560:10:59

Yeah, they were great.

0:10:590:11:00

Yeah, they really, really resonated again with people sharing

0:11:000:11:03

images of them and tweeting about how cool they were.

0:11:030:11:05

So we saw leather becoming a really big fabric

0:11:050:11:07

being spoken about as a forthcoming trend.

0:11:070:11:09

The big brands are getting really savvy about how to promote

0:11:090:11:13

and actually translate some of this buzz

0:11:130:11:15

that's going on on Twitter and Facebook into sales.

0:11:150:11:17

One that I'm really interested to see how it happens is

0:11:170:11:20

for the first time the Burberry show this afternoon, really exciting,

0:11:200:11:24

they've got a Twitter buy-now button, and you'll actually be able to buy

0:11:240:11:28

the nail varnish that the models are wearing on the catwalk.

0:11:280:11:30

You could be part of that straightaway.

0:11:300:11:32

The final designer we're seeing today is a man I've adored

0:11:340:11:37

for such a long time.

0:11:370:11:39

Giles Deacon reinvigorated the fashion scene

0:11:390:11:42

with his unique mix of glamour and wit.

0:11:420:11:44

Over ten years on and he still never disappoints.

0:11:470:11:50

Guys, not on the cobbles, please.

0:11:500:11:52

So we are at the Giles show now. I'm so excited, it's always so much fun.

0:11:540:11:59

There's always the best, most tongue-in-cheek, brilliant bags,

0:11:590:12:03

he always plays with lots of colour,

0:12:030:12:05

he always has great models, great music,

0:12:050:12:07

so let's get in.

0:12:070:12:09

Yeah, the light's from there and you don't have a flash.

0:12:090:12:12

Yes, I'm wearing Giles. My amazing outfit is Giles.

0:12:250:12:29

He designs the most beautiful clothes

0:12:290:12:31

that always make a woman look ladylike,

0:12:310:12:33

but like she likes a lot of fun,

0:12:330:12:35

which is exactly what fashion should be, right?

0:12:350:12:38

Hello, Fashion TV. How you doing?

0:12:390:12:41

I love what Giles does because it's really playful

0:13:240:13:26

and it has this immediate impression of being very light and fun.

0:13:260:13:29

When you actually look at the pieces, they're not light at all,

0:13:290:13:32

they're brilliantly done.

0:13:320:13:34

- I always love Giles shows. - Yeah, me too.

0:13:340:13:36

Love his use of colour

0:13:360:13:38

and there's always some glamorous dresses, like with the capes.

0:13:380:13:41

- Yeah. - Knitted sweaters.

0:13:410:13:42

Yeah.

0:13:420:13:44

It was so good. So good! Did you enjoy it?

0:13:440:13:46

- I did enjoy it a lot. - I love how it's so wild.

0:13:460:13:49

It was a bit like a Bikram yoga centre backstage though,

0:13:490:13:51

and I thought people were going to literally pass out.

0:13:510:13:54

- Oh, yeah, fair enough. - Myself included.

0:13:540:13:56

- I thought I was going to pass out. - Yeah, it was very hot.

0:13:560:13:58

The best for me was all of the flat shoes with dresses.

0:13:580:14:00

- Yeah. - Yes. Cos I'm too tall anyway.

0:14:000:14:03

Gorgeous mental masculine shoes with very pretty, beautifully made...

0:14:030:14:07

Very beautifully made.

0:14:070:14:08

..slightly sideways dresses is kind of what we do, I think.

0:14:080:14:11

Yeah. Very well. And that pink jumpsuit.

0:14:110:14:13

Yeah, that's got your name on it. And that metallic leather.

0:14:130:14:16

No. No more metallic leather!

0:14:160:14:18

- I love you, Giles. - Oh, cheers, sweetheart.

0:14:180:14:20

- Thank you so much, Daisy. - Thank you, you're the best.

0:14:200:14:23

- Take care. - And you.

0:14:230:14:24

I wish I had my heels on now. I'm like a little midget.

0:14:240:14:26

- Let's do one. Just one. - Oh, you're so sweet.

0:14:280:14:30

Oi! Pick it up!

0:14:300:14:32

- Pick it up. - Right, OK.

0:14:320:14:35

Have you spotted any trends this season?

0:14:350:14:37

The main trend I think is the death of the high heel.

0:14:370:14:39

- That's something that I noticed. - I love that.

0:14:390:14:41

- So happy. - So happy.

0:14:410:14:42

Everybody's been wearing their trainers in the front row,

0:14:420:14:45

which was amazing.

0:14:450:14:46

Yeah, flats everywhere, even with evening gowns. It's been so good.

0:14:460:14:49

For me, also, the emerging designers were really strong this season.

0:14:510:14:54

Shrimps showed for the first time.

0:14:540:14:56

Really fun presentation of faux fur, really colourful.

0:14:560:14:58

What every girl wants to wear.

0:14:580:14:59

Have you spotted any trends?

0:14:590:15:01

That's a really hard one. I think we're...

0:15:010:15:03

I think it's hard in London.

0:15:030:15:04

It's hard in London cos everyone has their own identity

0:15:040:15:07

and you almost don't want to group people.

0:15:070:15:09

I think something we're seeing a lot of is this kind of real

0:15:090:15:12

embracing of primness and femininity, but done in an powerful way.

0:15:120:15:16

So we've come to the end of the day.

0:15:230:15:24

It's actually quite sad I'm not going to be seeing you guys anymore.

0:15:240:15:27

We've seen three incredible shows by three wonderfully talented men.

0:15:270:15:32

And, um...I think that, you know,

0:15:320:15:34

we've been looking for trends of what everyone wants to wear

0:15:340:15:37

in the spring/summer 2015, and I think ultimately that

0:15:370:15:40

what we've realised is that coming to London, they don't really

0:15:400:15:44

stick by the trends, they kind of stay true to their own colours

0:15:440:15:47

and I think that that's a great thing to realise

0:15:470:15:50

when you're looking for your clothes of spring/summer 2015, is to actually

0:15:500:15:53

go with your own personal style and what you love

0:15:530:15:56

and what makes you feel good.

0:15:560:15:57

That's the advice I've always taken for myself anyway.

0:15:570:16:00
