It was very, very wet, and very, very cold but somehow the fashion pack still managed to dazzle in the style stakes at the London Fashion Week A/W 2010 collections.
After a slowish start on Friday (with the exception of the Hakaan show which had celebrities and fashion royalty packing both the front row and the runway), the off-runway action picked up on Saturday when some of London’s brightest young fashion stars held their shows. Mark Fast, Topshop’s Unique collection and House of Holland were all drawcards for the local and international fashion crowd who didn’t let the teensy fact that it was the weekend stop them from wearing sky-high heels, enormous fur coats and skin-tight leather. And it just got better and better from there on in.
My camera and I had trouble keeping up! And this season it wasn’t just the girls who looked completely fabulous, the boys were just as stylish. I really think that winter allows men’s style to shine, perhaps as it lends itself to beautiful fitted coats, and accessories like hats, scarves and gloves, all of which can take an outfit from nice to WOW!
Hottest fashion accessory of the week? The Umbrella (although I did spot numerous improvisations being used as protection from the rain including newspapers, magazines, handbags and scarves-you have to work with what you’ve got, no?!).
I’m off to Paris for the collections later this week-I will be keen to see if the trends I spotted in London carry through to Paris.
Wish me and my camera luck xx
