Vogue World: London kicked off London Fashion Week with a bang. Shortly before the fashion-filled and star-studded show began, the red carpet delivered plenty of celebrity fashion moments (including Sienna Miller, who bared her baby bump in Schiaparelli!); Once guests made their way inside the Theater Royal Drury Lane, they were then treated to a theatrical performance, filled with supermodels, live dance numbers, and of course, epic fashion designs. A standout moment from the show was when singer FKA Twigs made a surprise cameo on-stage, joined by members of the revered Rambert Dance Company.
Providing one of the first live performances of the night, Twigs hit the stage wearing a sexy black cut-out bodysuit by the New York designer LaQuan Smith, while the Rambert dancers sported traditional black, form-fitting dance wear behind and around her. “I loved how graphic it was and how it framed my physique,” says Twigs of the look. While the star sang a rendition of “It’s a Fine Day” by Opus III, models such as Cara Delevingne and Jordan Barrett worked the crowd in edgy, punky designs. “[The performance was] a symbiosis of dance, art, and fashion—us all moving as one together in celebration of our craft and love for movement,” says Twigs.
You could hardly take your eyes off of Twigs and her dance troupe on-stage. Considering the evening served as an homage to London’s vibrant arts and cultural scene, their artful choreography—with twigs suspended in the air multiple times!—and ethereal vocals couldn’t be more on-trend for the night.
