London Fashion Week always bring an eclectic selection of the capital's best fashion and showcases it to the world. This season, we loved some of the influences from our favourite fashion eras and how some of today's best designers adapted these to make contemporary style statements. We take a look at our stand out trends and how you can recreate these with an authentic vintage feel!
Shoulder pads were always due a comeback; AW17 saw an array of big power house jackets made for our era's modern woman. Designers such as Christopher Kane, Marques Almeida and Molly Goddard took the trend and made it their own.

Blouses really stole the show this season! They were loud and proud, making a real statement in every look. Preen had us swooning over ruffles, Henry Holland took us West, and Temperley reminded us that a good collar never goes out of style.
