London Fashion Week commenced with a nod to classic aesthetics by Irish designer Paul Costelloe, who marked the event's 40th anniversary. Despite the 78-year-old's unavoidable absence due to illness, his "Once upon a Time" collection unfolded on the catwalk, showcasing a blend of whites, dark greys, and tweeds. Described as "Where Limerick meets Downtown New York," the presentation featured models in white jackets, plaid ensembles, and darker-toned tweed suits and coats. The evening segment introduced patterned dresses with puffy sleeves. In show notes, Costelloe emphasized the enduring relevance of classic design in high fashion, infusing personal nostalgia into the collection. A print inspired by his former residence added a touch of reminiscence.

A note from Costelloe's team explained his absence, citing a virus, and conveyed his warm wishes for London Fashion Week's 40th milestone. The British Fashion Council (BFC) organized the first London Fashion Week 40 years ago, making it one of the prominent global fashion fixtures alongside New York, Milan, and Paris. Notable for showcasing emerging talent and avant-garde trends, London Fashion Week's significance was underscored by illuminating landmarks in green on Thursday night. The celebration of its 40th anniversary reflects on the creativity, youth culture, and innovation that have characterized the event throughout the years.

BFC Chief Executive Caroline Rush emphasized London Fashion Week's role in shaping fashion trends, particularly in youth culture, subcultures, and innovation. With over 40 catwalk presentations scheduled until February 20, the event continues to be a platform for established and upcoming designers, including renowned names like Burberry, Bora Aksu, and Mark Fast. The celebration signifies London's ongoing influence and leadership in the global fashion industry, inspiring trends that reverberate across the fashion landscape.
