Death of Queen Elizabeth II

Yesterday was a day to forget for Britain: the Queen Elizabeth II she died at age 96, ending an era and saying goodbye forever to the country she ruled for decades. Now the Windsors are struggling with funeral arrangements and succession as people gather outside the main royal palaces to honor the iconic ruler one last time. Thanks to her colorful suits, her typically British hats and her bags, she has always had a strong impact on world fashion and, inevitably, the fashion system could not ignore the tragic event of the last few hours: this is how the program of the London Fashion Week.

Parades postponed after Queen’s death

September is the month dedicated to fashion and the dates for the international Fashion Weeks have already been set for several weeks. However, no one would ever have imagined that the English queen would die just days before London Fashion Week, currently scheduled for 16-20 September, forcing organizers to revolutionize the official calendar. The British Fashion Council has announced that it will respect the protocol provided by Buckingham Palace in the event of the death of a sovereign (which includes 10 days of national mourning before the funeral): all fashion shows that were supposed to take place on 19 September, the day of Elizabeth II’s funeral, were postponed to a later date.

London Fashion Week canceled events

Due to the death of Queen Elizabeth II, all after-fashion parties, parties and new store openings were also cancelled. The British Fashion Council expressly asked the British press and stylists to be more sensitive in the dissemination of thematic fashion content, in order to respect the moment of mourning experienced by the country. In addition, the parades that have not been postponed will likely be anticipated by a minute of silence and, as if that were not enough, the possibility of tributes and tributes to the Queen on the catwalk is not excluded. Elizabeth II left an indelible mark on world fashion and will surely be remembered forever as a formal, but at the same time rock, icon.
