Tata Naka is always a great London Fashion Week presentation to attend, I love that you get to see a lookbook being shot before your eyes, and the prints are always incredible. For SS16, the designer label has been inspired by one of Mexico’s most famous artists Diego Rivera, with his painting ‘Calla Lillies’ providing the key motifs for the collection.

I love fun London Fashion Week presentations and they don’t get more fun than Steven Tai’s ‘Worst Day Ever’ theme, showcasing his models dressed in pretty dresses in a classroom having the worst party ever.

London Fashion Week feels so long ago now, we’ve already had Milan and now the fashion pack is in Paris, but I think once you scroll down and see this post you will agree it was worth the wait, as for spring/summer 2016, Sophia Webster showcased her new #CrazySexyNautiCool collection in a fantasy mermaid launderette set-up. Yes, mermaid’s came to shore to wash their tails and wear their favourite shoes and it was incredible.

London Fashion Week was pretty fun this season, the fashion was insane – so many creative and inspiring collections so I really do have a lot of content to share with you all, and first up is Markus Lupfer, who always puts on an amazing presentation.
