LONDON, Sep 23, 2009 / — Drawing the womenswear element of London Fashion Week to a close, day 5 saw designers going all out in terms of shapes, fabrics and inspirations in a bid to impress the plethora of editors, celebrities and buyers that have graced the capital this season.
First up was the quintessentially British Amanda Wakeley, who showed a typically elegant collection of molten metallic dresses in shades of gold, silver, cinammon and copper. A total contrast to the ‘coming of age’ theme to Basso & Brooke’s show, which saw the Brazilian/English design duo send their models down the runway in draped body-con dresses, with futuristic prints inspired by Jeff Koons.
Erdem wowed the crowds with their Japanese inspired floral prints, with mandarin collars and crisp whites – all immaculately tailored with toned down make up.
Of course, the real star of the evening was Burberry’s return to London Fashion Week – which saw the likes of Victoria Beckham, Anna Wintour and Agyness Deyn take to the front row.
Mixing their heritage pieces with futuristic silvers, lilacs and shimmer – the Burberry show confirmed why London Fashion Week is still going strong after 25 years.
