London Fashion Week Fall 2012 – Top 5 Shows


As always London’s new talent are ruling the runways!

Simone Rocha impressed many with her reinvention of the ‘Rocha’ look (started by her designer dad John) even though it is her first ever show at London Fashion Week!!! Erdem‘s prim and proper collection had an added edge  this season with his tweed-like leather and lace cut into flower shapes. It is his immense attention to detail that keeps him on the fashion map. Sarah Burton’s military approach for McQ had the audience on the edge of their seats as the models walked through rustling leaves. The atmospheric show will definitely draw the international fashion crowd to London next season. Does Christopher Kane ever get it wrong? His innovative use of fabrics such as leather silk and velvet prove why the designer is at the top of his game. The beaded, chinese like print that ended the show will appear at the top of every fashionista’s shopping list. Mary Katrantzou always finds a new way to do print. Her ever-changing silhouette is what causes peoples excitement for her show. Her interesting, bold colour palette of yellow, red, green and blue reacted perfectly with her coveted prints.

Erdem Resort 2012


For Resort, Erdem featured a collection of his signature prints and shapes, forcing a feeling of the cool classic look he does so well. His inspiration came from actress Romy Schneider’s appearance in Luchino Visconti films. This made model Guinevere van Seenus a perfect match.

The collection may have more casual wear then usual, but the tweed jackets and cinched waists gave a complete 40’s and 50’s look throughout the collection. This may be the work of a young designer, but the collection portrays a more confident feel then ever. Erdem proves to be what women want.
