VB kicked off her brands celebration at NYFW Fall 18, to culminate in a homecoming September show in London. Sensationally supple leather dresses, duchess satin parkas and plisse skirts pleated with origami folds were just some of the highlights at New York show.

Among her personal favourites was a leopard print coat, featuring a fabric sourced in an old Venetian upholstery mill remade in lightweight chenille jacquard.

She also unveiled “her take on faux fur” with a print mimicking the texture of fuzz crafted into pleated skirts and day dresses, while cashmere hoodies, knitted leggings and leather cuffs fastened to trouser hems brought a more casual, sports-luxe air.
