London Fashion Week is one of the most fun but stressful times of the fashion calendar, I love that I get to see the new collections up-close and discover new talent, and this season was packed full of talent, but the stress that goes into what to wear is crazy. I used to stick to my all-black wardrobe, tried and tested and never fails, but there is something about letting go and trying something new, and that’s where this winter floral suit from Wolf & Whistle came in, I thought it was very Erdem.
This London Fashion Week it seems that everything I loved was a presentation, I always find there is more of a story to a collection shown as a presentation rather than on the runway and one my SS16 highlights had to be Edeline Lee’s showcase, as this is a designer who really knows how to tell a story.
Inspired by series of paintings by Richard Diebenkoen, Edeline Lee’s presentation had a fitting setting at the Elms Lester Painting Rooms, and I loved the white wall backdrop for her showcase, with the models making the finest 3D picture, in their pastel and colour-blocking pieces. I have to be honest it felt more like an art installation than a fashion week presentation and I think that’s why I feel in love with it.
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.
One thing that you are guaranteed with Sophia Webster is a fun, kooky presentation, we’ve had futuristic and a secret garden party, and now the British footwear designer who has been taking the fashion world by storm, decided on a nautical theme that was fun, romantic and cool.

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.
For spring/summer 2016 the designer, best known for his sequin knits, seems to have grown up with a feminine collection filled with sheer dresses embellished with pretty embroidery, laidback separates including adorable bomber jackets mostly in a monochrome colour palette, camisoles and loose trousers, all inspired by the Mexican wilderness.
