Ask anyone and they’ll tell you that London is the most fun out of all the international fashion weeks. Perhaps it’s our knack for not taking things too seriously, our love of street style and the high street or the major blow-out parties that go on during these five days of fashion (or all three reasons!). And today was a typically fun day on the runways.
Carrying on brilliantly from the New York shows, bold colour found its way onto the runways on this second day of fashion week. From poppy red at Betty Jackson to bright yellow at Jaeger via vermillion at Issa and fluorescent orange at Henry Holland, it’s clear that black is definitely not back.
The music, too, seriously brightened up the cold and rainy day – Issa’s Seventies and Eighties hits had front rowers Charlotte Dellal (there to support mum Andrea modelling on the catwalk) and Mark Ronson’s squeeze Josephine de la Baume bopping away. Meanwhile, Henry Holland’s kitschy remix of 1950s classics like "Mr Sandman" and Nina Simone’s “My Baby Just Cares For Me” put smiles on the faces of his It-Girls, Alexa Chung, Nicola Roberts, Jaime Winstone and Pixie Geldof.
We can’t wait for more fun on tomorrow’s catwalks! On the agenda are Mulberry, Topshop Unique, Vivienne Westwood and Matthew Williamson.
