London Fashion Week: Day Two

Day two @ London Fashion Week AW14 and our Fashion Blogger, Lauren Lewis was there ready to give us more insight into the lovely shows she attended that day.

Collection Event: Jewellery designer Tessa Metcalfe showcased her jewellery collection at the Wolf and Badger designers showcase. Beautiful stones cast between gold pigeons feet; this collection celebrates ‘finding beauty in the gutter’. Inspired by the city of London, the foot of a pigeon is transformed into beautiful trinkets, each piece playing on the fantasy underworld of her hometown Hackney, London.

Fashion show: Bernard Chandran gave us a sexy attitude with a masculine approach. An effortless simple approach. The collection included structured 3 piece suits and separates. Chandran kept us guessing with cocoon sleeves, high collars and exposed zip details. captivating us with innovative perspex patent panels; Chandran continues the trend through to A/W 14.

Fashion show: Kiev fashion days – Paskal A/W 14 collection showed caged black mini dresses and monochromatic separates. Grid like mesh overlays created eccentric layers. Paskal wowed us with a pop of intense neon pink. The white minimalistic outerwear was a great contrast to break up the caged looks. I think the grid checks are definitely here to stay.

Fashion show: Belle Sauvage focuses on the iconic Parisian women. Gold chain hats add to the military touch. Sauvage presents chain and red lipstick digital prints creating architectural shapes. Luxurious silk duchesse and satin fabrics with sheer black layers create cape like movement. Oversized blown out of proportion shoulders and monochromatic structured dresses with gold detailing bring the “Paris cats after midnight” collection together.

Fashion show: Feminine glamour and the return of European haute couture in the 1950’s, was the inspiration for Hema Kaul’s A/W 14 collection. Peplums and full skirts inspired by the decade of glamour with a vintage influence. Each garment constructed, to enhance the female form. Playful lace, Indian embellishment, velvet’s and silk: bring an exciting and enchanting vision encompassing the ‘new look’ of the 50’s.

Fashion show/Presentation: Liz black presentation and me with Romeo from So Solid Crew!
The Liz Black A/W 14 presentation was a highlight at London Fashion Week, this season. The theme was based upon surrealist artist Salvador Dali. With his face and a giant moustache as the backdrop for the models, that pranced around in feminine silhouettes, hand painted prints and a skirt in the shape of ‘lips’. Liz Black used objects like the famed lobster telephone and lips sofa to emphasise the mysterious, dreamlike world of fashion and surrealism.
