LFW: Top Trends SS13

Daytime metallics, dungarees and a continuing fever for all things sport featured heavily and often humorously (see Maarten van der Horst’s take on his Tesco inspired outfit) at London Fashion Week. Here’s a peek at next season’s top trends. Metallic’s Mermaid metallic’s stood out, especially in outerwear. You may think sequins and metallic leather jackets [...]

CORRIE NIELSEN SS13: The Perks of Being a Flower

Fringe award winning Corrie Nielsen’s SS13 show was certainly one of the most looked-for ones in the first day of this London Fashion Week. “I’ve put my all into this collection. It’s probably my most stressful to date, but it will be the most remarkable!” stated the rousing Central Saint Martins graduated designer days before [...]

London Fashion Week 2012

London Fashion Week 2012 has kicked off today at London’s Somerset House and with a bang. The finest Spring/Summer 2013 collections are scheduled to be showcased by designers such as Sass & Bide, PPQ,  Dominic Jones and many more as the weekend ensues.   The exhibition itself is presented over two floors, revealing some of [...]

Fashion Week is Nearly Here!

It’s September and for the fashion world that means a non-stop procession of catwalk shoes and designer presentations. From New York and Milan to London and Paris, Dolce and Dior to Gucci and Giorgio, it’s a world that many may aspire to but few devotees ever infiltrate. However…   Last season (it’s always S/S or [...]

John Rocha at LFW

This week marked a rite of passage: my first official visit to London Fashion Week. Instead of looking wistfully at Somerset House, I had full permission (and the tickets to prove it) to actually be there. Even if I didn’t know the way from the station it was easy to find: just follow the well-dressed [...]

The Four Laws of Leopard Print

Seasons come and go, trends peak and expire but leopard print remains a perennial favourite on the fashion circuit – it’s like the cockroach of the post apocalyptic fashion-kingdom; it cannot and will not be defeated. Here are some fool-proof tips to wear your spots with pride:   Avoid frumpy fabrics There’s a reason the [...]

Christopher Shannon: One To Watch

The next big thing in fashion may be a title that isn’t always handed out to those who necessarily deserve it but designer Christopher Shannon looks set to prove that statement wrong entirely. Having shown his latest collection at the menswear day of London Fashion Week, the designer sent his male models down the catwalk [...]

Spot The Dog

The last time I wore an outfit inspired by the film 101 Dalmations was fifteen years ago; a white pair of cycling shorts with black spots and a matching t-shirt bearing a few of the famous dalmations from the 1996 film. But in February this year we saw the only high street brand on the London [...]

All Creatures Great and Small

As London Fashion Week is all but wrapped up, I am incredibly happy to say that my personal favourite pattern, leopard print, remains on style for the year to come. Alongside leopard print the whole animal kingdom appears to follow, zebra, cheetah, and even Dalmatian prints and furs dominate new Autumn/Winter 2011-12 collections. With the [...]

Accessorize This!

Want to find the perfect solution to saving those pennies whilst still remaining at the height of fashion? Big, bold and beautiful or sexy, stylish and demure… there’s no denying that accessories aren’t huge this season (and I don’t just mean the choice of earrings designers are serving up on a silver platter for us). [...]

Front Row Bloggers

So, Fashion Week is over in London for another season and what have we learned? That some trends will continue while others are merely a one season wonder, and that there will be photos of numerous stylists/writers/fashionistas who the outside world look at as strange and confused. However, the fashion lovers among us fall over [...]

My London Fashion Week

The early morning sun is falling softly on the golden fields as they speed past me. The sky is bright blue, hinting at a splendid day ahead. My stomach is rumbling slightly from my early morning start and the lack of breakfast consumed. It’s 8am and I’m on the Edinburgh – London train writing my [...]

London Calling

After the fabulousness of NYFW it was time to toss off the oversized sunglasses and don our geek chic specs to welcome back London Fashion Week. Britain may not be the most favoured country in the world right now (the Eurovision song contest is my barometer and it ain’t good) but you can never detract [...]

New York Fashion Week

NYFW (for those cool peeps in the know!) has been and gone at the kind of speed only seen in the fashion world, a whirlwind of creativity, excitement and uber stylish folk. Was I there!? Well no, because as of yet my potential for amazing fashion journalism is yet to be recognised but just you [...]

As the curtains came down on New York’s Fashion Week, our beloved capital duly opened its doors to London Fashion Week.  The much anticipated glimpse at Spring/Summer 2011 has been nothing less than a blast of sophistication.
