LFW... Day 1

The collection is a psychedelic sixties in full force. Paisley prints, vibrant colours, nautical stripes. Its a deliberate mix of all sorts. 


Bora Aksu
Turkish designer Bora Aksu was very regal with inspiration coming from Queen Victoria's grandaughter, Marie, who became Queen of Romania in 1922 and embraced traditional Romanian culture without losing her Englishness. With trade mark coctail dresses and sheer blouses we were in for a treat.
The designer will be launching their first handbag collection in autumn. Can not wait to see them.

Collars all around. 

Jean Pierre Braganza
Tailored pieces dominated this show. With panelled dresses, structured blazers and that Tuxedo 3 piece suit. The collection is very mature and takes classics to the next level with these prints.

Emilia Wickstead
Inspired by Capote's society swans this chic and elegant collection was beautiful. 

 Sass & Bide
The Australian duo really showed us who was boss yesterday. They wowed us with beading and shell detail, origami folding, feathers, metal, tassels, chiffon, sheer tuxedo tails. 
With their trademark necklace necklines. It was tradition conrasting with futuristic.
They were inspired by a trip to Peru which they fell in love with. 
The show stopper was the embellished maxi dress.

Looking at all these collections I just cant wait for next spring/summer and to see what the high street will make of this season. I truely can't decide on a favourite of the day. 
But it seems to me that many designers are creating their pieces with the Duchess of Cambridge,Kate Middleton in mind.
