SS14 London Fashion Week (LFW) Highlights: Day 1

Day 1 of London Fashion Week starts off with Bora Aksu sending down the catwalk an array of beautiful outfits comprising of intricate fabric manipulations and textures.


Fyodor Golan a Latvia and Israeli born duo ease the audience in gently with softer tones of white, nude and sky blue only to dazzle them with a colour that could be described as golden neon yellow.



Felder Felder, the twin sisters who studied at Central Saint Martin’s. Their ideal client is a woman who is at ease with herself and the world. Felder Felder women are young at heart but a little wild. This show proves they haven’t lost touch with the customer.


Ostwald Helgason threw colour and prints at everyone at Fashion Week, proving to those in doubt its ok to mix and match your prints and still look really cool. I bet no one missed the cheeky balloon animals on the T-shirt.



J JS Lee a Korean born talent who’s pattern cutting is superior, minimalist and modern. Sending down the catwalk a mixture of miniskirts and cigarette trousers.


The duo that is Pearce Fionda sent down the catwalk a series of evening wear outfits which are a testament to their talent. Any woman will feel like a million pounds as she enters the room in any one of these outfits. Beautifully cut and masterfully sculpting the female figure with such precision.


Daks went for a check print, which features throughout. The orange and tan colour brings life to all the outfits, I love everything in this collection, what do you think?


Christopher Raeburn need I say more. The mens and womenswear designer who always comes up with the goods. I can’t decide if my favourite piece is the metallic silver dress (beautiful and very forgiving) or the cool quilted blue metallic jacket with the jersey sleeves. Both are on my wish list I think.


Jean Pierre born in Canada and studied at Central Saint Martin’s, this man knows a thing or two about prints. With a somewhat oriental vibe mixed with modern art, his collection is edgy, daring and dark.


Well Jasper Conran definitely wanted to mesmerise the audience, firstly with the set which was covered with monochromatic patterns on the walls and floor. Then to top that the clothing seemed to have emerged from the background and come to life right in front of the audience. By far the most graphic collection so far of London Fashion Week.



The last show of the day was PPQ and they didn’t disappoint. Bringing the tropics to rainy London, bright sunshine yellow bodices, crop tops, colour blocking and fitted skirts with ruffled hems. I didn’t expect anything less but fun and frivolity from this duo.


That’s it for the first day but I couldn’t let you go without seeing what the fashionista’s were wearing to London’s most fashionable event. #On the Streets
