Now that the dust has settled on London Fashion Week Spring/Summer 14 it’s time to take a quick look at some of the online stats reflecting the week’s events.
Hailed a resounding success for the fashion industry, interest in London Fashion Week spread far beyond the runway. With a heady mix of the unveiling of the latest designs, the hectic show schedules and which celebrity has made it onto front row, it is of huge interest globally – and it appears that the UK’s fashion conscious audience can’t get enough of what is going on.
Keeping a close eye on the week’s events were content discovery platform Outbrain. Simon Edelstyn, Managing Director of Outbrain Europe commented, “the industry has already passed its judgement on London Fashion Week; however what is significant from this data is what the UK public have found most interesting. Despite not being written about the most, Henry Holland stole the show as the designer with the most page views – perhaps due to his killer combination of designs and who he had on his front row – including Harry Styles.”
