British fashion brand Rixo took over Goldsmith’s Hall in St. Pauls to present its AW22 collection for London Fashion Week, offering a glittering, sparkling extravaganza inspired by the 1930's.

"The Golden Age" collection fittingly saw the brands' signature hand-painted prints adorned with geometric patterns, velvets and sequins, capturing the opulence and splendour of old Hollywood. The showcase also highlighting the brand's continued efforts for size inclusivity, with extended sizes now ranging from 6-24.

After ascending a Victorian-looking staircase in the Goldsmith's hall visitors entered a ballroom-like space where they could roam in-between the stages to the left and right hand side of the room, where models from across multiple generations displayed the new season's collection.

As ever Rixo took inspiration from hand-picked vintage treasures, drawing from 1930's screen prints that it reworked on new shapes and silhouettes. The season also saw it developing its own silk and metallic jacquard fabrics, with key party pieces featuring sustainably sourced feathers. All styles were also paired with the brand's newest shoe collection, made of leather and suede boots and sandals with feather trims, which are also launching in the September drop.

Co-Founder Orlagh McCloskey commented on the presentation: “Designing this collection has brought us so much joy over the last few months and sharing it with everyone today has been so special! We can’t wait to see our #humansofrixo wearing it come September.”

Co-Founder Henrietta Rix added: “This collection is our first extended sizing range from size 6-24, after years of perfecting the fit, it’s such a proud moment for us to be able to offer this. The collection celebrates glamour and party and we’re so excited to be showing at another London Fashion Week.”

Orlagh and Henrietta spoke about their love of vintage fashion and how they went from taking appointments in their living room to being stocked in Harrods, Net-a-Porter and Selfridges on this episode of's InConversation podcast.
