London Fashion Week

On Monday evening [Details on Request] attended Fashion Week at Somerset House. And what can we say; black is most definitely the new black.

There was a very obvious dark side to this year’s exhibition, and we loved it. Bodices, leather, bondage, extreme wedged shoes, feathers and lace had us very hot under the collar - delicious. Gothic structured dresses and tailoring were softened by delicate detailing of fringing, crochet and beadwork. Feminist fashion at its best.

We spent most of the evening exploring the Estethica exhibition, to witness that ethically sustainable fashion can be as brilliantly executed and inspiring as the main exhibition. We can only suspect the exhibitions were separated to highlight Fashion Week as a true member of the eco warrior squad. (And of course there may have been a nice budget boost from the government).

The coolest of the green brigade are all clad in Lily Cole’s label The North Circular. Think big knits, woolen hats and tweed.

Other notable labels included Minna, one of our definite favorites.
