The Down-Low: And the award for Most Out Of Place Individual Sitting Front Row At London Fashion Week goes to... Iain Duncan Smith.
The Show: Aquascutum
The Down-Low: The trend for all things bright and beautiful (specifically lemon yellow and orange) continued at Aquascutum's show yesterday morning.
The Shows: Osman and David Koma
The Down-Low: Time to ditch the tasteful natural tones and rock some blue eyeliner and eye shadow. Princess Di ahoy.
The Show: David Koma
The Down-Low: The closing show at London Fashion Week is never an easy slot to fill - and weary, bleary-eyed fashionistas make for a tough audience. But David Koma brought the house down with his beautifully put together collection inspired by artist Kim Joon.
The Show: Mary Katrantzou
The Down-Low: Visually arresting from the off, Katrantzou transformed the old Eurostar terminal into a field of thousand of carnations, and followed up with a stunning show packed with hypnotic print and colour.
The Down-Low: The great model exodus. Gucci, which showed its Spring/Summer 2012 collection today, flexed its fashion muscles and demanded that models due to walk for LFW shows including Erdem, Temperley and Aquascutum fly to Milan for fittings and castings instead, leaving London with a model black hole. You could literally see the steam coming out of the London designers' ears.
The Show: Pringle
The Down-Low: A stellar f-row at Pringle's show included the stunning Rosario Dawson and our style crush Tilda Swinton (dressed in a golfing sweater no less).
The Event: Number 10's fashion shindig
The Down-Low: SamCam laid on a sumptuous spread of vol-au-vents, Twiglets and cheesy footballs (we assume) for fashion's great and good, including Tom Ford, Anna Wintour, Philip Green, Christopher Bailey and Mary Katrantzou.
The Down-Low: A quick shout out to US Vogue editor Anna Wintour's hair. Resembling topiary rather than actual strands of hair, we are ever in awe to this 'do, which graced Number 10 Downing Street with its presence last night.
The Show: Roksanda Ilincic
The Down-Low: We grabbed a quick backstage chat with Roksanda post show, where she revealed that her new collection was inspired by 1960s couture, meets 80s-era grunge. Translation? Beautiful experimental shapes - voluminous sleeves, softly structured skirts, all-encompassing gowns - combined with strong colour combinations, mis-matching heels and knitted beanie hats. PS We were fairly traumatised by just how tall and beautiful Ms Ilincic is when we spoke to her after the show. Just. Not. Fair.
