The London Fashion Week concluded on 18 February 2020 with Princess Anne presenting the royal award to jewellery designer Rosh Mahtani.
It wasn’t all! There was something more exciting. Three upcoming Middle East and Asian textile talents showcased some explicit innovative designs at the runway, which mesmerised everyone present at the show.
Rosh was awarded based on her commitment to sustainability and ethical practices, which yet again reflects fashion industry’s increasing focus on sustainable practices.
The issue of sustainability persisted throughout the show. Several designers launched sustainability initiatives, including a secondhand handbag exchange from Mulberry and a Phoebe English collection made entirely from deadstock and surplus materials.
The signature looks of the Princess Royal has been deemed this season’s unlikely style muse, with her knee-length tailoring and equestrian chic dominating the catwalk at shows.
Featuring designers including Vivienne Westwood, Victoria Beckham, Tommy Hilfiger and Burberry amongst many others, the schedule was impacted by the Coronavirus outbreak in China as a result of which majority of buyers could not attend the show.
