The countdown is officially on! And no, we don’t just mean to our AMAZING #shopcadelfw pop-up event and party, we mean to actual London Fashion Week!

New York Fashion Week is drawing to a close after an amazing few days of shows, with stand outs from Alexander Wang, Tommy Hilfiger (hello Kendall Jenner!) and J. Crew.

We’ve followed it closely, from all the top shows to the hottest street styles hitting the tent; we even caught Rihanna heading into Alexander Wang on Saturday!

So as the spotlight shifts to London, here’s our pick of the shows we just can’t wait to see this season!

 

1. House of Holland

Who? The King of Slogans

Why? The celeb packed FROW for one reason! Expect to see the Primrose Hill set out in full force, plus the two Lily’s (Allen and Collins) have been papped in rarely anything else for the past few months, so they are pretty much a shoo in for this season. Henry Holland’s AW14 collection was my favourite to date; an amazing collection of vibrant jewel colours, bold solgans and plenty of sequins to liven up the dull winter. Can he top this for SS15? Oh I’m sure he’ll give it his best!

Where? Saturday 13th September, 6.30pm

 

2. Topshop Unique

Who? Er, the most popular high street chain has a high end line… AS IF you didn’t know!

Why? Well if the ‘who’ section of this little preview doesn’t convince you, then last season’s wondrous oversized furs, stunning tailoring and downright gorgeous sixties mini dresses sure will! Topshop pretty much have the teen to early twenties market sewn up and this is just another string to their ever expanding bow. Always a celeb magnet, the FROW is bound to be bursting and we have a sneaky feeling a certain Kendall Jenner may well be walking this season too. Watch this space.

Where? Sunday 14th September, 3pm

3. GILES

Who? Giles Deacon, an off-the-wall designer who keeps us guessing every season.

Why? Last season he put Kendall on the runway and it caused a sensation. I’m not trying to say this is the only reason we love him, it’s just one of the reasons! He puts celebs on the runway, he takes risks (Bambi decapitated circa ’07 for example) and is generally embraced for his quirkiness in a fashion world when sometimes we can play it waaaayy too safe.

Where? Monday 15th September, 8pm

4. Mary Katrantzou

Who? Mary Katrantzou, the Queen of pretty prints; we bow down to her each season!

Why? Her collections are just so darn pretty! She can do gothic prints just as well as spring blooms and every season she manages to surprise us, without losing all sense of her USP. That said, AW14 was a real shocker! No prints in their usual form, instead she chose to play with embellishments, so will we see something similar for SS15? Only one way to find out!

Where? Sunday 14th September, 6pm

 

5. Ashish

Who? Someone who always makes Fashion Editor’s crack a smile when they see his collections!

Why? Colourful, bold, crazy, quirky… er how else to describe the amazingness that is Ashish?! Every season he genuinely makes us all smile because he continues to push boundaries with even more chaotic prints and fabrics than the season before. His collection for Topshop proved he can do mainstream too, without losing any of his uniqueness and I can’t wait to see what he has planned for SS15 in the coming days!

Where? Tuesday 16th September, 3pm
