We barely have time to eat, sleep or do anything inbetween after the last show at New York Fashion Week yesterday, and here comes London Fashion Week popping up on our radar. London is in whole other league to New York. It has a much more innovative and creative thought process when it comes to Fashion Week and the collections that designers have worked on for the past six months. You just have to think of Alexander McQueen and the Central Saint Martin's shows to know what I'm talking about. That is why when LFW comes around, I start to get excited at the prospect of seeing something amazing and totally controversial.
|Antoni & Alison Fall 2012|
Today London Fashion Week kicked off at 9am with the Antoni & Alison Fall 2012 line. The collection featured basic t-shirt dress silhouettes and featured scanned in objects such as feathers, sequins and bows to give an otherwise flat surface some texture. The collection made you feel as thought you could reach out and touch the objects printed on the dresses, and was - in my opinion - quite quirky and different (especially seeing it next to the shows from NYFW yesterday)
Other designers who showed their collections today included, Jean-Pierre-Braganza, PPQ, Central Saint Martins, Corrie Nielsen, Bora Aksu, Orla Kiely and Fyodor Golan to name but a few. For a look at some of the collections from today, click here.
So. Tomorrow kicks off with Daks at 9am, with other notable shows such as Jasper Conran, Mochino Cheap & Chic (debut show tomorrow at LFW), Aquascutum & Stella McCartney (returning to London, after showcasing her collections solely in Paris for the past few years). I can barely contain the excitement bubbling up inside!
Are you ready for it?
