From a carbon neutral runway show and Kendall Jenner going blonde at Burberry to Harper Beckham sitting next to Anna Wintour at VB's SS20 collection, London Fashion Week was a whirlwind of events, trends and celebrities.

Next season, green is clearly the colour to be seen in and feminine silhouettes with a dose of masculine tailoring will be a pivotal point in SS20 wardrobes; for some inspiration, below are the five London Fashion Week designers you need to follow on Instagram (if you aren't already.)

Halpern (@HalpernStudio)

Inspired by Barbara Streissand this 70's nostalgic collection was full of dramatic sleeves, excessive tailoring and bright colours embodying the silhouette of a vibrant decade.

Stepping away from the 70's the SS20 collection also featured loose flowing and draped fabrics which boasted jacquard and sequin designs.

The show-stopper of this collection was a gold co-ordinate accompanied with a matching ankle-length duster jacket, proving gold isn't just for the festive season. On the topic of colours, green was key throughout Halpern's collection and the shade was prevalent throughout many LFW SS20 shows.

Supriya Lele (@supriya_lele)

For her LFW debut Supriya Lele switched things up from leather to tartan a description that resembles a more A/W vibe yet by incorporating sheer fabrics, thigh high splits and pops of colour as a nod to hear Indian heritage, the designer has firmly set herself as a major LFW contender.

Low waist trousers and skirts with visible midriffs were 90's reminiscent but updated with wispy fabrics and delicate tie fastenings. Asymmetry was ubiquitous in this collection, whether on hemlines, necklines or sleeves giving the collection a contemporary yet feminine feel.

Roksanda (@roksandailincic)

Taking inspiration from architecture and art Roksanda's SS20 collection commanded attention.

Starting off with a neutral palette and easily wearable garments the show escalated and models were suddenly emerging in floor skimming gowns featuring sculptural sleeves and necklines, vivid colours and fluid fabrics; it's clear this season designers were both optimistic and experimental.

Draped fabrics still managed to accentuate the female frame, sleeves covered wrists and necklines were high, proving big and bold are the key to Roksanda's SS20 wardrobe.

Erdem (@Erdem)

The myths surrounding Tina Modotti, are where Erdem took inspiration from for his SS20 collection. Show-goers were romanticised by elbow length gloves, oversized hats and voluminous proportions.

Ruffles, prairie dresses and ponchos gave a mysterious edge to the collection as they concealed the female frame rather than accentuating it, as seen in other runway shows. 

Embroidered and flowing fabrics embraced femininity in the most opulent way, all whilst embodying the strength of his muse.

Christopher Kane (@christopherkane)

Sensual, futuristic and floral, three words to describe Christopher Kane's SS20 collection. Beginning with what seemed to be a tribute to nature with a striking green palette and an array of floral patterns, the collection showcased trench coats and mini dresses which featured plastic detailing.

Clear perspex was in-fact a featured heavily throughout the runway from shoes, buttons, bags and earrings.

The collection then led into darker shades, voluminous sleeves and leather with pops of neon yet, it was galactic inspired garments that stole the show.

Starry sweaters combined with grand crystal chokers and oversized sweatshirts with the earth printed on were paired with lighter fabrics adorned with feathers and lace; the perfect balance of masculine and feminine.
