As London Fashion Week has drawn to a close and with Paris Fashion Week going on until March 11th- STYLIGHT have been inspired by Vahram Muratyan’s cult book designs to create a visual comparison of the two most iconic fashion weeks.
In contrast London Fashion Week is far more irreverent, carefree and really looks to harness young talent. As Alexa Chung stated ‘London Fashion Week is so different from any of the others… London seems freer from commercial constraints. Truer to the process, to street style, to a sense of humour.’ Launched 11 years after Paris, London Fashion Week thrives on innovation and pushing style boundaries and it’s in here where people can really express themselves.
London has a far edgier feel while Paris is more refined and elegant. London girls team a head-to-toe Burberry look with Adidas Stan Smiths while, across the channel, they wouldn’t be seen dead without their trusty Louboutins. London Fashion Week also takes place in a variety of effortlessly hip, off-site locations such as the Tate Modern where Christopher Kane showcased his collection to the likes of Alexa Chung, Daisy Lowe and Pixie Geldof. The FROW in Paris, in contrast, is largely made up of the top fashion editors sporting their classic red lipstick and Chanel handbags.
We can’t get enough of these quirky little differences. So tell us, Paris or London? Which one’s your favourite fashion week?
