First Favourites from London Fashion Week SS14

Monday, 16 September 2013

Hello lovelies!

So fashion month has moved to London and it's time once again to see if that mad, creative, adventurous style is still living through out these Spring Summer collections.

As playful as ever with a bit more prim and pretty Sister by Sibling took on 50's and 60's America with bubblegum pinks, polka dotted denim and bouffant voluminousness hair. All white picket fences and sipping on chilled lemonade. 

Henry Holland channeled his wild, energetic aesthetic into another feminine sugary sweet collection. However it's not like House of Holland to be one dimensional so looks were edged up with a punkish heart print and some models even had tattoos. The man himself will be speaking at my university and I will no doubt be sat up in the front row with no shame.

John Rocha embraced a dark romantic femme theme this year with sophisticated shapes further developed with alluring shear materials and well fitted gowns. Of course Rocha did what he did best which was to keep this collection dramatic but also stunningly simplistic. 


With a strong note of the 70's and New York chic Holly Fulton was all feminine grace with light tones of blue, pink and white featured in light summery fabrics. And what's a Fulton show without lively geometric prints and creative patterns.

I deliberately chose Fyodor Golan to get a dose of that classic creativity and bravery that makes it OK to stick multi-coloured feathers on a massive skirted dress. It's not London Fashion week without an exciting barrier pushing collection.

A nice start to the week I think and I can't wait to see what the rest of the collection have to offer during my favourite fashion week. 

Thanks for reading,
