London Fashion Week Autumn/Winter 2018: Another popular colour trend on show was Pink in many guises.

Designer and illustrator Amy Thomson’s colour palette is all shades of pink ranging from pale rose and baby pink to bold fuchsia with just touches of royal blue and lilacs.

Titled ‘Chasin’ Dreams’ the collection presents a character based on a profession seen from a child’s perspective. How does a teacher, a baker, nurse or fashion designer look like through the eyes of a child?

Fabrics are silks, faux fur, metallic leathers all adorned with bows, ribbons and frills.

Headwear is a collaboration with Katie Hamlett from Sassy Freak.

Claire Tagg chooses a contrast colour palette of baby pinks and fuchsias. The AW18 season is inspired by the designer’s personal story of her travels as an Air Hostess.

She combines glamour and destructed textures to creative a dramatic yet opulent range. The cherry blossom placement prints are inspired by the Orient.

Chiffon and satin alongside sequinned lace and silk jacquard create textures. Each garment is hand beaded. Accessories are also by the brand.

Indian fashion graduate Chirag Bhagwani opts for bubblegum pink as he introduces his flair for Indian Pop Art in fabric. His style ranges from the calm elegant long sleeved maxi dress with yellow spots reminiscent of lava lamp bubbles to the ferocious tiger leaping to the scene surrounded by a sprinkling of sequins.

Simon Mo boldly goes for fuchsia pink in geometric patterns and head to toe colour blocking. His pattern is inspired by the plumage of tropical birds. A black and pink velvet bowler completes the outfits.

To break up the colour blocking he relies on texture:

A loose fitted dress is cinched in to the waist with pink striped belt and teamed with matching velvet turban.

Sports meets glamour as a strapless dress is a combination of knitted top and chiffon handkerchief hemline. Accessorised with matching pink box bag.

Teatum Jones

Titled ‘Global Womanhood’ Teatum Jones’ AW18 collection takes a journey through moments of intense joy, sadness and hope.

To describe intense joy the designer duo uses a palette of explosive reds and bubblegum pink. Movement if fabric is key as the fluidity demonstrates femininity, empowerment and a freedom in expressing these three core emotions.

Shoes are a collaboration with Christian Louboutin.

Mimi Tran

For eveningwear Mimi features hot pink in her ‘Snowflake’ AW18 collection. The pink (along with green) represents the iridescent kaleidoscopic shards within the snowflakes.
