London Fashion Week is in full swing, and over the next few days we’ll be bringing you the best highlights from each day of the event. Check out the Day 1 Roundup below, and be sure to check back again tomorrow for your front-row look at whats to come for Autumn/Winter 2012.
It certainly feels like London Fashion Week started and finished in the blink of an eye, but we had a fabulous time! And once again, the F&F team were on site at Somerset House with the important task of snapping the best style spotted on the street.
However, with so many wonderful outfits, we asked you guys to help us crown the ‘LFW Street Style of the Day’, by decide on your favourite looks over on our Facebook page! It was certainly a close call, but keep reading to take a peek at the best outfits of the week, as voted for by you!
With influences from the Parisian scene, we just adored the understated style and sense of cool this woman gives off. Bright reds and blacks go together perfectly and give a very classy feel to the outfit.
We loved how eccentric this outfit was! The big bold pleats are certain to turn heads and this girl really shows how to wear them. We especially like the mix between the subtle checks on one side and the vivid yellows on the other half of the dress. Oh, and just look at those gorgeous shoes!
Autumnal tones were definitely starting to emerge this Fashion Week, and we loved the combination of a bright orange v-neck top with a tailored tweed jacket, for that touch of English-gentleman. The outfit is also completed nicely with stylish boots and a vintage inspired leather satchel.
This amazing ensemble fits in perfectly with this season’s Monochrome Trend. We especially fell for the retro styling of her jacket, and the leather detailing on the sleeves are bang on trend for this season. Her vintage looking blouse is a wonderful addition and oversized 60’s glasses give her outfit that extra wow factor!
People often have doubts about clashing patterns, but this dress shows how they can look beautiful when done right. The transition between intricate prints on the top of the dress and bold black and white dots toward the bottom is flawless, and we love how she has balanced out the print with a pair of understated black ankle wedges!
So here I am, waiting for the final call for my first-class flight to Milan for fashion week, but I didn’t want to leave London without giving you my spin on the trends that emerged for next spring at London Fashion Week over the past few days. So here goes…
The hot pink cocktail dress: wow dressing at its simplest and best.
Floral prints: big and small on skirts, blouses, t-shirts, trousers, you name it.
Cardigans: printed, beaded and patterned, it’s the new season jacket.
Tropical colour: kingfisher blue, Jaffa orange or sunshine yellow, pick any hue so long as it pops.
Wedges:still the shoe of choice for summer. Phew!
And the things I’ll treasure…
Best goodie-bag treat: BaByliss straightening irons at Henry Holland.
Most starstruck moment: Beyoncé taking a bow at House of Deréon.
Most stylish celebrity front rowers: Kate Moss, Sienna Miller, Gemma Arterton, Romola Garai, Kanye West, Pixie Geldof, Paloma Faith, Ellie Goulding, Eliza Doolittle, Olivia Palermo.
Until next season, this is Fashion Dahling en route to Prada in Milano, not just reporting, but shopping on fashion’s front line.
The party began even before the shows had finished. In fact, the party took to the runway at Meadham Kirchhoff. Front row, watching a riot of Courtney Love lookey-likey cancanning dancers and tweeny, deeley-bopper-bedecked ballerinas, US Vogue editor Anna Wintour, aka Nuclear Wintour, the most powerful woman in fashion and the inspiration behind The Devil Wears Prada, sat stoney faced. But surely no flippertigibbet model would dare cross the path of She Who Must Be Obeyed. Well, no one told one model, who lifted her skirt and flashed her knickers at the Ice Queen. Did she melt? You’ll have to watch YouTube to find out.
And so, as the womenswear shows end at London Fashion Week, I’m taking my high-heeled self off for a moment of barefoot downtime, before taking my plane to Milan for fashion week, Italian style. I’ll send you my round-up of the London trends to trot and the ones to drop direct from the first-class lounge at Heathrow tomorrow. Until then, sleep tight.

London Fashion Week is well under way, and it’s been a great chance for us to catch up with our favourite bloggers down on the cobbles at Somerset House! Of course, they all looked simply fab (we wouldn’t expect anything less!), and we thought we’d give you a sneak peek at some of their gorgeous LFW outfits!
We loved Lily’s rock chic twist on the little black dress with this gorgeous leather jacket!
The intricate details on Reena’s dress had us totally head over heels, and those rose printed tights are simply gorgeous!
Jazmine’s all-black ensemble was bang on trend, and we loved the attention to detail – especially the sheer shirt! Extra points if you spotted the lovely F&F jacket she’s wearing!
Pleats are a definite favourite here at Clothing at Tesco HQ, and we love how the wind caught Pearl’s eye catching pink pleated skirt! And just look at those patterned heels – so gorgeous!
We love how Gem kept her outfit effortlessly chic and stylish – pairing a versatile F&F jumper with those lovely fringed heels!
Tor certainly proves that prints still have the power, with this edgy full length print dress that she’s teamed with the F&F Limited Edition Waterfall Jacket!
It was madness at Mulberry from Refresher-stripe maxi dresses to cropped, cape back sou’westers and a bonkers seaside theme complete with sticks of Mulberry rock [delicious by the way]. But the sartorial note I took was that Kate Moss was wearing a Fedora front row. And so too was uber fashion blogger Anna dello Russo. And I thought we’d finished with those last season!
Now I know I was able to exclusively bring you the scoop of Tom Ford’s uber private debut show last February. This season however, he had me sign a confidentiality agreement. But I’m sure he wouldn’t mind me sharing with you his catwalk tunes especially as two of them are favourites of mine: Unfinished Sympathy by Massive Attack and You’ll Be Mine by NY sister duo The Pierces.
But sighting of the day must go to Naomi Campbell who was looking happy in a relaxed in a foxy bodcon McQueen dress and oversized sunnnies. And not a sign of a tantrum.
