Designer Copy: Marks and Spencer vs Erdem

I think this red lace Erdem dress may be one of the most copied pieces on the high street, well it is truly gorgeous, but I have found that none are great in colour, fit or even quality, well that is until now. I think this online exclusive from the Marks and Spencer Autograph collection is one of the best I have seen, especially as this Floral Lace Dress is only £89.

I just love its flattering silhouette, which nips in at the waist and flares out, add in the luxurious feel of the scarlet lace and this is one hot dress!!

LFW SS11: Summer Romance From Erdem

Erdem present a glorious collection of feminine silhouettes in delicate fabrics with romantic flowery prints for its spring/summer 2011 collection.

There were a lot of dresses that I can’t wait to see walk the red carpet, with this red flared lace high on my wish list. Erdem has a huge celebrity following with Lea Michele and Kiera Knightley both fans and I hope all the celeb stylists out there are calling in these items!

No one else does lace quite as well, from all over detailing to delicate panels – this is the most girlish collection I have seen at London Fashion Week.

Scarf Delight: V&A Teams Up With Erdem

Pic: V&A

I am a big fan of the V&A, I love visiting the shop as it has one of the best fashion bookshop in London but I also love that it has great designer collaborations. The latest designer commission is with one of my favourite designers Erdem to celebrate the exhibition Diaghilev and the Golden Age of the Ballets Russes, 1909–1929.

Erdem has applied his magnificent skills with colour and prints and created this gorgeous colourful silk scarf. At almost a metre square it incorporates original costume designs by Léon Bakst for the ballet Narcisse in 1911 – the colours are divine and would look good with any outfit.

‘It’s wonderful to work with Bakst’s illustrations; I thought they were such a wonderfully inspiring starting point for the scarf. The Ballets Russes are so inspiring and colourful…’ Erdem Moralioglu

The Narcisse Scarf is available exclusively from the V&A Shop from September 2010, priced £185.

#LFW: Excitement As The Schedule Is Announced

So last week the British Fashion Council announced the official London Fashion Week schedule for SS11 for September. I have been mulling over the schedule and I am liking what I see. The big highlight has to be Giles Deacon confirming his return to London, marking a return following two seasons in Paris – he appears on the fourth day and it will definitely be the hot ticket of the week.

Giles Deacon commented on his return to London: “Giles is a quintessential London label and I am extremely happy to be showing in London after two successful seasons in Paris”.

Other things I was happy to see on the schedule were: Swedish fashion house Acne are debuting at LFW for the first time with two salon presentations, which is nice to see, especially after the successful opening of their London flagship this week on Dover Street. Other newcomers to the schedule include one of my favourite emerging designers Holly Fulton who is going a catwalk show with the help of NEWGEN sponsored by Topshop.

It is also great to see that Burberry Prorsum, Matthew Williamson, Pringle of Scotland, Antonio Berardi and Jonathan Saunders are returning for a third consecutive season. As well as British talent in Paul Smith, Jasper Conran and Betty Jackson to world-class emerging designer businesses such as Christopher Kane, Erdem, Marios Schwab and Richard Nicoll. It is going to be a great season.

But one of the most interesting things to see on the schedule is that of a Alexander McQueen Memorial set for Monday, September 20, at 11am. No further details have been announced yet, but I am sure it will be packed full of fashion editors and fashionistas paying their respects, I just hope that they also stream it live for all his fans as well.

I am already making my wish-list of tickets: Erdem, Sass & Bide, PPQ, DAKS, adidas by Stella McCartney, Mulberry, Vivienne Westwood Red Label, Kinder Aggugini, David Koma and Holly Fulton back-to-back, Mark Fast, Peter Pilotto, Jaeger, Christopher Kane, many more I am sure – and of course Burberry and Giles *well a girl can dream*.

At least this season I will be dropping down to more shows for work, my registration is already submitted, I also can’t wait for the digital schedule to be announced as watching from the comfort of my sofa was also a nice luxury.

Let me know what you are interested to see?
