2018 was a year filled with fashion moments, and we have loved it. Keep reading for our 9 favourite fashion moments of 2018.

The #metoo movement 

The fashion world has never before been such an activists landscape. 2018 was the year of campaigning for actual change. January’s award season saw many incredible actresses wear head to toe black for the #metoo movement.

This was not only a visually stunning statement, but it also progressed the movement promoting solidarity between all people, industries and nations. 

Rihanna at the Met Gala 

May saw 2018’s Met Gala, with the theme “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination”. This religious theme was absolutely smashed by so many famous faces, but none more than Rihanna.

Rihanna wore a custom ream bejewelled gown layered beneath a flowing overcoat by John Galliano at Maison Margiela. With designer Stephen Jones providing a matching bishop’s hat. This was a fashion MOMENT. 

New Direction for Louis Vuitton’s menswear 

Virgil Abloh took the reins of the men’s division of Louis Vuitton earlier this year and came out fighting in his first show. The SS19 collection was a riot of colour, with old house codes subverted and revitalised for a bright collection.

This was one of THE shows of the year, with a star-studded audience with Kim KW in attendance, we know it was a mega moment. 


The fashion world mourned the loss of one of its icons, Phoebe Philo. The head of Céline stepped down in January 2018. We waited to see what new creative director Heidi Slimane would do with our favourite label.

Sadly, Slimane kind of ruined Celine, no accent, as it is known now. Well, the fashion world did what it does best, and celebrated what we actually loved, old Céline. With several Instagram accounts popping up, and articles listing where we can buy Philo designs. Fashion celebrated its own icon. 

Vicky B’s 10 Year Anniversary 

Another icon, yet a homegrown talent. Victoria Beckham celebrated her 10 year anniversary with a homecoming show, with her collection being showcased on the Sunday of LFW.

We loved the collection and all the hype that Victoria created surrounding the show. This was a glorious show that showed us just how far this former Spice Girl has come. 

The #meghaneffect 

2018 was the year of Meghan Markle or the Duchess of Sussex to us. She is the style icon we all know and love. Not only was her wedding to Prince Harry the wedding of the year, but her royal tour has served us so many fashion moments.

Any brand she has worn has caused sales to sour and some styles to sell out. Meghan is a style icon. 

The Croc Debate Yawns on 

Crocs have been all over the place. Fashion’s marmite shoe had an injection of style in 2017 with Christopher Kane, and then again with Balenciaga. This year it got its boost from unlikely collaborator Post Malone.

The collaboration has sold out twice, and we have no idea why. 

Lady Gaga and A Star is Born 

If Meghan Markle is the Duchess of fashion, and Rihanna our reigning Queen, then Lady Gaga is our Crown Princess. Her role in a Star is Born was eagerly anticipated. Yes, it was a great film, with lovely music. However, it was the promo tour we loved the most.

Gaga turned so many looks, with too many to mention. Just know that Gaga is up there with the best on 2018. 

Faux Fur is the winner 

2018 saw so many brands drop the use of real fur. Chanel was the last of this year, by announcing it wouldn’t be using real fur and exotic skins in any collections forthcoming.

Chanel joins Versace, ASOS, Nike, Micheal Kors, Burberry, Gucci, Stella McCartney, Calvin Klein and Ralph Lauren to all be fur-free. A highlight this year is that fashion is proving that it does care.
