London Fashion Weeks Autumn/Winter 2010/11 Collections kicked off with an extremely glamorous collection by Paul Costelloe, which was inspired by The Assassination of Jesse James.
A truly mesmerising show.
Caroline Charles followed with her take on Autumn/Winter, which was fun and comfortable looking,
yet extremely stylish.
Nicole Farhis collection was edgy, yet comfortable looking. Leather dresses and skirts in blacks and reds were worn over footless tights, and looked fabulous.
John Rocha, showed a mostly black collection with an occasional injection of pale pinks and creams, outfits contrasted beautifully together.It was beautifully tailored and chic.
Jaegers show seemed to fall back in line with its more traditional market.
I found myself finding comfort in the familiar, and feeling happily that this is the Jaeger style which we know and love.
The artistry behind the Kinder Aggugini show was jaw-dropping from beginning to end. Inspired by The Napoleonic Salon Scene, the collection had a distinctly military flavour.
The show was encapsulating, the garments luxurious.
PPQs collection consisted purely of blacks and golds, which only added to the desirability in the form of luxurious black velvets, gold lam and lashings of taffeta.
Burberry also had a military theme to its collection, and models wore sheepskin lined aviator styled Biggles jackets. Lace dresses added femininity to the collection, and were accessorised with long snakeskinboots.
Jasper Conrans artistically inspired collection was so feminine, vibrant, and well-cut, it was hard to forget.
