London’s been abuzz with the designers showcasing their latest wares over the past few days and no doubt the industry has been anticipating London Fashion Week more than ever this season for one reason and one reason only — Riccardo Tisci’s highly-anticipated Burberry debut.

The designer, who parted ways with Givenchy back in 2017, has been keeping us in suspense since he was appointed creative director of the mega British brand in March and finally debuted a respectful, chic and sleek collection for Spring 2019. Tisci’s debut wasn’t the only monumental thing to come out of LFW. Victoria Beckham came across the pond to commemorate 10 years in the business and Mary Katrantzou also celebrated a decade in fashion by producing a greatest hits collection. Meanwhile, Margaret Howell continued to do “simplicity at its finest” and we still can’t get enough of J.W.Anderson. And, it’s decided: Delpozo officially needs to join the haute couture calendar.

On the opposite end of the spectrum, Matty Bovan channeled Vivienne Westwood, Gareth Pugh is just doing more of the same and Alexa Chung somehow snagged a spot on the LFW schedule.

Whose collection triumphed overall? Take a look at all the hits and misses of London Fashion Week’s Spring 2019 season right here. Next stop Milan!
