Runway revelations: The must-see fashion shows of 2024

2024 may only have just made its appearance but that doesn’t mean new trends and styles aren’t already hitting the runways worldwide. Celebrities wander through the bustling roads, adorned in iconic brands and sporting unique fashion choices that promise to become revered by their avid fans. Brands are constantly looking for the next best thing and details to capture their audience’s hearts. The same goes for the world of eyewear. Statement glasses and sunglasses have become just as important in crafting a unique style as the right handbag or pair of shoes. In this article, we take a look at the the top fashion shows for 2024 and what this year holds for eyewear.

London Fashion Week

Fashion Week in four major cities of the US and Europe are a highlight in any trend-setter’s diary. It’s where the coming styles for Autumn/Winter 2024 will be showcased, enabling fashion lovers to be ahead of the game each season. In 2024, London Fashion Week takes place on 16 – 20 February, and although the main event is invite-only, there’s lots for the everyday enthusiast to enjoy. The city wide celebration includes zero-waste craftsmanship and upcycling workshops, limited edition product drops and Q&A sessions with designers.

If you’re looking for eyewear trends at London Fashion Week, you can be sure that vintage and oversize styles will continue to grace both the catwalk and the street style images this year. The LGR Dakhla frames are simply perfect for that classic look, making a strong statement with every outfit. Crafted from hand-polished cellulose acetate, these large frames adapt to the wearer’s face over time for optimal comfort. Oversize frames featured in the Carolina Herrera and Miu Miu SS24 collections, so look out for more of this trend in AW24. The Celine CL401891 sunglasses are sure to hit the mark.


York Fashion Week

Celebrating the creative talent of York and the north of England, York Fashion Week is a must-attend for young designers, start-up brands and those looking for the next big thing. Taking place from 2 – 6 May 2024, it features workshops and catwalk events – as well as a glamorous wrap party at the end of the week. Look out for plenty of colour and personality from the designers, as well as perhaps some bold eyewear. Coloured frames and tinted lenses like the Dita Laniti Limited Edition glasses are expected to be big in 2024. These fabulous glasses have a futuristic silhouette, golden accents and gradient pink lenses to create a fashion statement that can’t be ignored.

Graduate Fashion Week

A springboard for new talent, Graduate Fashion Week is taking place in London from 10 – 13 June 2024. Bringing together fashion graduates, educators and industry leaders, it’s the perfect way to discover new favourites. Even if you can’t get to the catwalk events in person, you can livestream from your living room to see what the next generation of designers is coming up with. You’re sure to find everything from zero-waste clothing to eyewear and accessories.
