LONDON, Sep 21, 2009 / — Known to fashion-insiders as super Sunday – yesterday London Fashion Week was all about the big names, luxe designs and memorable catwalk shows.
Vivienne Westwood’s Red Label drew an A-list crowd – with everyone from Sarah Harding of Girls Aloud to Joss Stone and Tracy Emin in the front row. The collection was traditionally British – with bold reds, blues and whites in oversized fabrics, high waisted trousers and draping dresses. We’re also pretty sure we spotted some of Vivienne’s signature horns as well…
Next up was Antonio Berardi’s culture clash – which combined the discipline of Saville Row tailoring, with the off-beat colour of Sicilian life – with lots of corsets, structured skirts and layers of fabric.
Bringing miserable London a taste of a Brazillian summer, Issa was full of colourful floor length gowns in daring cuts and colours – with none other than Naomi Campbell walking the catwalk, along with emerging star, Chanel Iman. Issa revealed that her collection was inspired by Rio de Janiero beaches and the work of Yves Saint Laurent – hence the brilliant colours and rich fabrics.
Richard Nicoll bought some fringe benefits to the week – with his tribal influence collection accessorised with flapper-esque fringing – even on the earrings! He even added some girlie bows to the mix – and proved to us all why he is highly regarded as British fashion’s one to watch!
