Last night, Harvey Nichols Leeds showcased the best of their AW14 designer collections in a runway show which had the longest catwalk I have ever seen! With the grandeur of the Victoria Quarter’s architecture as the setting and an audience of fashion savvy people, the show proved once again that Leeds do have the fashion factor! I cannot commend Harvey Nichols Leeds enough on the creativity and innovation expressed within the show and really wish other retailers and companies would follow in their footsteps to give Leeds a mark on the style map. Harvey Nichols will always lie at the central point of Leeds’ fashion hubbub. From Burberry to Balenciaga, they stock the best of worldwide fashion. I vlogged the event and you can watch it below followed by some recaps of the style showcased on the night.
The trends for this season’s HN fashion show were particularly youthful and current.The expert industry stylists at Harvey Nichols Leeds really excelled this season in marking their luxury fashion territory in the city and you could tell a lot of blood sweat and tears had gone into making the show a spectacle. The trends featured included Sports Luxe, with an array of backpacks, joggers and skater shoes by Givenchy teamed with pencil skirts and sweaters. A Mods and Rockers influence was definitely apparent with army style McQ boots and leather pants taking centre stage. The hues of the show were predominantly black and white, a trend that has progressed seasonally for some time. Plaid was also evident with beautiful textured coats and jumpers from Sandro. The eveningwear section finalised the show with an amazing array of silk dresses and tuxes.
