During London Fashion Week one of the most talked about presentations had to be Sophia Webster’s secret garden in the middle of Regent’s Park for her spring/summer 2014 collection entitled, Supa Dupa Fly.

If you love bold and striking fashion then you are going to love River Island’s autumn/winter 2013 collection that is starting to roll out across stores. I’ve already given you a sneak peek of the collection, from my behind-the-scenes at their lookbook shoot post, but as I have spotted a few of the pieces in store and online I thought it best to share my favourite pieces from such a strong collection.
