LFW - part one

London Fashion Week kicked off yesterday with a 9am start with Paul Costelloe, who's elegant tailoring showed us what's to come for Autumn/Winter 2011, Tartan and Brocade features heavily in his collection as well as tweed and geometric prints. 

The day went on to feature, Maria Grachvogel, Jena Theo and many other talented designers. 

Must say my favourite's were, Sass & Bide, who used belted scarves and cardigans in printed colours to give the show a winter feel, fringing was used on a gorgeous skirt which really appealed to me and beautiful gathering on tops and dresses looked like a major trend for the party season. 

Felder Felder, doesn't disappoint with giving the show a punk rock feel, leather was used on bra-lets and skirts and mixed with floaty fabric to give the look a twist. Silver also featured on the catwalk giving the collection a futuristic feel. 

Silver also featured with Bora Aksa- who's show went all out futuristic, with volume and layers. 

Another favourite for me was PPQ, velvet and gorgeous tailoring made it stand out for me. I also loved how the models wore bows in their hair and the long sleeves were for once extremely practical.

  1. Great round up, I have to agree Sass & Bide was the best so far. xoxo

  2. All of these photos are amazing. Nice overview, I haven't been looking at as many LFW videos as I should be! Really like the silver in Bora Aska.

  3. Thanks very much.

    Yeah I think I just love the colours for Sass & Bide, and the gathering and pinched in waists, gives the look a feminine edge, which is sometimes hard to do when wearing a lot of layers.

    Yeah silver feature's a lot which is great because it's quite versatile in how you wear it. To be honest I quite love the tights the models wore for Bora Aska :)
