The hot topic of conversation at this year’s London Fashion Week – as with so many others in recent years – was Victoria Beckham. Not only did she create a breath-taking show – with a front row almost entirely filled by her beautiful family, seated between Anna Wintour and Edward Enninful – she also released her highly anticipated make-up range, Victoria Beckham Beauty, which saw her coveted eyeshadow palettes sell out within hours of being released. Elsewhere David Koma showed a wildlife-inspired collection, filled with exotic prints, while Julien Macdonald teamed up with socialite Gabriela Gonzalez on his 40-look capsule collection and Riccardo Tisci brought his vision to Burberry for the third season.

Victoria Beckham’s SS20 show was a grand spectacle, held in the beautiful, marble-filled Durbar Court in the Foreign and Commonwealth Office in Westminster. Drawing on the success of last season’s cinematic collection, the looks were inspired by the 1970s, with plenty of flowy dresses and masculine trouser suits. Standout looks included a lemon yellow silk blouse with a tweed midi-skirt and a beige trouser suit with killer lapels. Pat McGrath designed the low-key beauty looks for the models, using Beckham’s new liners and palettes.Filippo Fior @FilippoFior – GoRunway.com for Vogue Runway
For David Koma’s latest collection, which marks the 10th anniversary of the brand, the designer drew inspiration from the mesmerising beauty of life on the Kenyan savannah, in particular the wildlife. Koma’s eye-catching take on zebra print appeared throughout the collection, alongside sculpted monochrome mini dresses, fun fringing details and shimmering sequins. Sexy and sophisticated, these are the ultimate party clothes.Filippo Fior @FilippoFior – GoRunway.com for Vogue Runway
Julien Macdonald is known for his high-octane glamour, and this collection was no exception. Teaming up with his close friend Gabriela Gonzalez (who started out as one of his biggest clients), the looks that took to the runway for his show at Southwark Cathedral were decadent, dramatic and sexy, with plenty of plunging necklines and thigh-high slits. Hair, styled by Ken Paves, was big and bouncy, while Wendy Rowe created dramatic smoky eyes to finish off the models’ show-stopping looks.Filippo Fior @FilippoFior – GoRunway.com for Vogue Runway
Kendall Jenner took to the catwalk with newly blonde hair for Burberry’s SS20 show, Riccardo Tisci’s third season in charge. There was plenty of sharp tailoring seen in the label’s famous trench coats, reinvented for this season with the house’s check-print lining, as well as tassels and lace (a nod to the collection’s Victorian inspiration) giving a feminine edge to skirts and dresses. Overall the look was polished and ladylike without being uptight.Filippo Fior @FilippoFior – GoRunway.com for Vogue Runway
London Fashion Week is known for its fun, up-and-coming designers, and this year that crown went to 30-year-old Molly Goddard, who gained recognition last year when her scene-stealing bubble-gum pink tulle dress was worn by lead character Villanelle in the hit BBC America TV show, Killing Eve. Her oversized, frothy creations, made with acres of brightly coloured tulle and taffeta, are instantly recognisable.
