Nearly every Briton will remember the last 12 months as the year that the red, white and blue bunting never came down.
The past year has seen an unprecedented string of celebrations, from the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, to the 2012 Summer Olympics, to the news this month that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are expecting their first child — an heir to the throne.
It was a year to remember British icons — and not just the Queen: The Rolling Stones and James Bond each marked 50 years in business. And the British Fashion Council celebrated the country’s stylish males with the unveiling in June of London Collections: Men, a twice-yearly fashion showcase.
It was Stella McCartney, the first fashion designer ever to create uniforms for Team GB and Paralympics GB, who kicked off Britain’s celebratory year when she unveiled her designs at the Tower of London in March.
Etro’s show, titled “The Tree of Life,” was a celebration of the house’s 50th anniversary. “My father founded the company in 1968, which was the year of counterculture and psychedelia. It’s really a show that celebrates that and the paisley design of India and its origin,” said Veronica Etro. #wwdfashion #mfw #ss18 (📷: @delphineachard)
For @msgm’s spring 2018 show, creative director @massimogiorgetti said “Words, sounds, colors. Synthesis and therapy of a collection,” were the inspirations behind the collection, showing today. Read the rest of Milan spring 2018 inspirations on WWD.com. #mfw #wwdfashion #ss18
For her first solo album in over 10 years, Fergie tapped Carine Roitfeld, Mert and Marcus, Giovanni Bianco and more to create a fashion-focused video approach for the record, Double Dutchess. "Giovanni really helped me get back in touch with my tomboy side, my hardside," said the singer. #wwdeye #wwdfashion ( : @slovekinpics)
“Volumes and Graphic Art of the Nineties are the main inspirations of the new Aquilano.Rimondi SS 2018 collection,” said cocreative directors Tommaso Aquilano and Roberto Rimondi. #wwdfashion #mfw #ss18
