Kate Moss! Alexander McQueen! 12 mega moments from the London runway

Including Craig Green’s tear-inducing SS15 show, Meadham Kirchoff’s punk-fuelled finale, and Martine Rose’s wildly brilliant Tottenham market takeover

Behold, another London Fashion Week is upon us. Formerly a shoo-in for front row gasps, backstage tantrums, and a street style circus outside, this season, much like the last, most of the action will take place behind a screen – streamed into your life by way of slick video presentation or someone else’s BTS Instagram story.

With the high drama of real life interaction on hold for whatever comes next – a post-vaccine return to IRL shows? A new landscape wherein videos have morphed into full-blown channels? Something else entirely different? – a moment away from what fashion historians will undoubtedly label ‘a very strange time for the international calendar’, and a reminder of what fashion week looks like in the capital: monumental runway shows. Below, we trace 12 of the best the city has seen.
