Tailoring at London Fashion Week


Whilst the 1970s are definitely having a sartorial moment, the 1990s are still very much present in this year's shows. Having said that, Emilia Wickstead has managed to subtly merge the two. Keeping her minimalist, paired-down aesthetic but combining it with bold, round sleeves, prairie-cut busts and a shy floatiness.

It is always refreshing to see someone working with traditional, time-honoured skills to produce something that still resonates with modern fashion. It seems that for 1205 their affinity also lies with the 1990s. AW16C-1205-009-681x1024AW16C-1205-006-681x1024
