Don't be Timid

London Fashion Week got of to a roaring start with shows from design talent such as Bora Aksu.

A well executed collection with an array of colours & perforated fabrics all presented with the romantic edge that we have come to know & love from Aksu.

Styles were reminiscent of home for the Turkish designer with Dirndl lace skirts & cute puff sleeves.

Elegant silver fabrics twinkled down the runway followed by blush pink & finally exploding into burnt reds & mustards. We must not forget the strong presence of monochrome, which Aksu displayed so well.

We have all been waiting patiently for our next installation from Fyodor Golan after their flamboyant affair from SS collection.

This season the show opened with a selection of black scrunched PVC dresses that wouldn’t have looked out of place on the set of the Matrix.

We were soon exposed to purple metallic’s, head to toe hot pinks & hologram fabrics promptly reminding us we were experiencing Fyodor Golan at their best.

Buddhist inspired prints with skirt & trouser combos in hues of burnt red reminded us that Fyodor Golan drew inspiration from their travels through South East Asia contrasting the traditional & contemporary worlds they encountered.

The Daks show was a true tribute to British heritage.

Top to toe camel dominated with maroon, gold, military green & black all falling in behind.

Checks were present & correct & at one stage of the show even took the form of a 60’s inspired fur pea coat.

Trench coat’s morphed into ball gowns for this season & leather mosaics & metallic’s wowed us in various styles of jacket.

The cherry on the cake was the use of the Busby hat in camel, black & check, which accessorised beautifully & added a little humour to a thoroughly polished & grown up show.
