اسبوع الموضة في لندن

A model at the London Fasion Week

Hello and welcome to BBC Xtra English!

Today Doug and Louay talk about the London Fashion Week.

This year, London Fashion Week has shown how designs and fashions can re-emerge many years after they were in fashion.

Shoulder pads are one example of a fashion item that was very fashionable in the 1980's and has now been brought back onto the catwalks of the London Fashion Week after many years of being out of fashion.

According to fashion historian James Laver, fashion goes through cycles.

In 1937 he wrote Laver's Law, a theory of how the fashion cycle works.

He said that 50 years have to pass before something that was out of fashion can come back into fashion.

But many things have changed in the fashion industry since Laver's Law was written and it seems that old fashions are coming back into fashion much quicker.

Another major change that has happened this year at the London fashion Week has been the use of larger female models by a major designer.

Usually designers use very thin women to model their clothes, but this time, designer Mark Faust used larger women in a controversial show for his new designs.

Fashion always changes and maybe next year, the London Fashion Week will have more surprises in store for us.
