london fashion week {sponsored review}

London Fashion Week 2012 Reviewed
The London Fashion Week is one of the most awaited runway events in all of the United Kingdom and the fashion world. Britain is home to some of the most talented fashion designers - the talent is usually seen oozing during the fashion week or other fashion events. Colour and jazz, the two components overflowing in abundance in such fashion events, was once again seen in the spring and autumn collections display at the London Fashion Week 2012.

Spring Collection/ Summer Event

Printed trousers are in and the floral multicoloured pants showcased this. Pastel shades of dandelion clashed with the pastel shades of magnolia. Most designers boldly flaunted many such contracts and fusions on the runaway. Mesh inserts for dresses with “flatform” shoes were elegant and stunning. Jonathan Saunders made a spectacle with his collection of jewel tones, frocks, and lengthy coats.

Pleated school skirts and button up shirts were in vogue. A special attention to bold, mesmerising, and vibrant printed African tribal designs was given at the runways of Burberry Prorsum and Ikat prints. Beading on dresses that gave graceful cuts and sparkles to several fashion wear was a common sight. While 'orange' represented the New York designers, 'yellow' was a major aspect of the work exhibited by the designers from Britain.

Autumn Event/ Winter Collection

House of Holland, Mary Katrantzou, McQueen and Unique dazzled the audience with their garments and suit collections. Oversized mob style tops with trousers and skirts from McCartney’s collection were truly inspiring. Winter collection also saw bright clashing colours, most popularly orange, as a contrast to fur and leather from House of Holland. Christopher Kane, the Scottish designer, also made an impact with his new collection that is set to hit the markets very soon.

The London Fashion Week is not just about clothes. Jewellery also keys into the whole agenda. In fact,
earrings, bracelets and other shiny metallic accessories played a major part in this year’s Fashion Week.

Fashion is ruled by trends. Just because some high end collectibles form a part of the runway show, it does not mean they become an instant success with the buyers. The fashion world gives ratings to each outfit and lot of its long-term success is decided by these ratings. However, regardless of the outcome, Britain models and designers have been triumphant in creating a blown away effect at this year’s fashion extravaganza.
