Topless is the trend at London’s Fashion Week

It’s not unusual for models to reveal a glimpse of chest on the catwalk.

But on the first day of London Fashion Week, it seems to have become something of a trend.

Jena Theo, Bora Aksu and even one of Samantha Cameron’s favourite designers Emilia Wickstead made the topless part of the show.

And while fashion appears to me in the midst of a Sixties revival, it seems a fitting nod to bra burning to expose so much of the female form.

Emilia Wickstead featured floaty silhouttes and babydoll dresses as models walked to ‘Music to Watch the Girls Go By’.

Jenna Theo also featured babydoll dresses with dramatic eyeliner, false eyelashes and plenty of blusher.

Bora Aksu went for a more Gothic theme with a nod to the Edwardian era – popularised by Downton Abbey and The Twilight Saga.

And with a remake of F Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby currently being filmed, starring Carey Mulligan and Leonardo Di Caprio, the Twenties is also a major retro trend for next summer.

Corrie Nielsen paid tribute to the East with a Japanese-themed show.

Trends to emerge today also include hues of green and peach.
