Richard Nicoll sure knows how to open a show; he sent his first model out in an illuminating dress, in the dark, mimicking Walt Disney’s Tinkerbell. The slip dress was made with a filigree of fiber optics, instantly casting a spell on the show’s onlookers. Attention grabbed, the show then consisted of powdery hues in ombré, textures and shiny accents for both an activewear & casualwear selection.

Fashion came alive during this show, from the neon lights at the top of the runway, to the vibrant colours and prints within the collection to the hints of neon in the flatform sandals. Designers Justin Thornton & Thea Bregazzi definitely captured Spring within his pieces, clashing romantic florals with geometric lines, and adding backpacks for a bold touch.
I love a bit of menswear creeping into womenswear, and the Marios Schwab collection did not disappoint. Chic tailoring, muted tones but still graphic prints & geometrics, this was one fashion show for the girly businesswoman.
A favourite among many young women, the Topshop LFW show was headed by top ‘IT’ models and BFFs Cara Delevingne & Jourdan Dunn. The show consisted of sporty luxe, casually cool attire, ventured into spring/summer dresses and eveningwear too.
I adore Matthew Williamson’s designs, and his Spring collection was one that ticked every box. From the romantic but powerful fashion, to the gorgeous pink & purple beauty additions and the bouncy hairdos, there wasn’t one look I didn’t like; and that really does say a lot.
As the now-artistic director of fashion house Mugler, David Koma’s Spring collection of his own label was highly anticipated; would it or would it not differ from that of the Mugler designs? Signature monochrome with flashes of lemon yellow, all blue or blue accents dresses in beautifully architectural structures, Koma definitely delivered something spectacular, and one that he can easily call his own.
When it comes to Antonio Berrardi, you can expect the unexpected. For this latest collection, designs included box suits with serious embellishment and floral prints, royal vibrant colours, texture, structure, lace, shine and everything in between. And with over 40 looks, this was definitely one of my favourite shows.
The Whistles show was an exciting monochromatic experience. Showcasing both mens- and womenswear, there was a lot of texture, patterns, jackets and powdery blue & soft pink hues. A great collection for the subtle fashionistas, and for the classic black & white look.
