London fashion week came and went with some interesting creations from familiar designers such as Vivienne Westwood, Paul Smith and Matthew Williamson. I particularly enjoyed Alice Temperley’s designs for Temperley London. Below are my favourite collections from the London shows.
With a distinct seventies feel, the combination of clothes were worn in styles and colours that were reminiscent of images not seen since looking through old family picture albums. For me, the collection left me feeling all warm and fuzzy inside, remembering such greats as Jamie and the Magic Torch, Rentaghost, Rowntree’s Cabana chocolate bars and strawberry cushion sweets, as well as asking how TV shows such as ‘Mind your language’ and “Love thy neighbour’ managed to get away with it for so long…
My favourite from London fashion week, the clothes mixed classic elegance with contemporary style. Think Grace Kelly, Audrey Hepburn and Tippi Hedren.
Following on from the London shows last week saw the much anticipated Milan fashion week and – as much as I know how unpatriotic I may sound – this is the fashion week I have been waiting for and wish I could have attended.
With my favourite designers Alberta Ferretti, Roberto Cavalli and Salvatore Ferragamo (still to grace us with what will be undeniably beautiful creations) all featuring at Milan, you can understand why this is my favourite fashion week and seeing the collections that have appeared so far, I have not been disappointed.
