Forty Years of London Fashion Week 2024: The ERDEM Runway - A Hand Tailored Suit

Forty Years of London Fashion Week 2024: The ERDEM Runway

London Fashion Week 2024 took place between the 16th and 20th of February. The event was celebrating its fortieth anniversary, and the schedule featured both menswear and womenswear designers, with highlights including Burberry, ERDEM, JW Anderson, Molly Goddard, and Simone Rocha.

This Fashion Week featured clothes for the autumn/winter 24 seasons. Although the designers stamped their own style onto the collections, there were a lot of stand-out trends, from the now ubiquitous sheer fabrics of many a past runway and award event to faux fur, big bows, oversized outer garments, and striking prints. 

ERDEM's Fall/Winter 2024 collection was presented in the Parthenon Room of the British Museum. The collection was a homage to Opera singer Maria Callas and her performance of Medea, an ancient Greek tragedy, in 1953. Watch the full runway show below.

ERDEM used layering, draping, floral prints, and delicate silks to represent the elegance and femininity of the opera singer. The collection featured coats with trains, faux fur, shawl dresses, and jackets with enormously oversized lapels. There were feather-covered shoes, long leather opera gloves, exquisite embroidery, and large gold tulip brooches. The collection was bold and dramatic, much like Maria Callas herself. Take a look at some of the stand-out pieces below.
