London Fashion Week AW12

London fashion week has come and gone, well till September anyways. It's always so exciting! Here I'll share with you the shows and looks/trends that I loved.

Day 1
Bora Aksu

This collection stood out for me. It embodies all the main trends for AW12. There were lots of lace, soft pink and grey hues, two-tone clashing prints, Aksu's famous patterned tights. Its all very romantic.

My favourite look:

Day 2
Temperley London

The lace trend continued at Temperley on day 2, I liked this collection, again it's very feminine with a dark edge.

My favourite look:

Day 3
Marios Schwab

This collection dominated day 3 for me, it was all very sexy and seductive. Lace patterned dresses, sheer maxis and t bar shoes.

My favourite look:

Day 4

Every collection shown on day 4 was amazing! Antonio Berardi, Mark Fast, Erdem, Michael van der Ham were all on point. Alexander McQueen McQ was also shown, military-chic comes to mind, I'm not sure I 'get' it.
The star, the unbeaten, hands down show stopper of day 4 has to be Christopher Bailey's Burberry Prorsum collection. Every piece of this collection is exquisite!
Gorgeous belted trench coats

And my absolute fave:

Peplum skirts, studded gloves, lace up ankle boots

Sharp tailoring

It's very rare that you see a collection and like every piece, it just doesn't happen...except for this collection. I could go on and on, I loved it....Burberry killed on day 4.

Day 5
Meadham Kirchhoff

Bringing your inner dancing queen out! what a fun-tastic collection! The hair (orange, silver, yellow) the blue and red faces!
Sequins galore! It's all very fancy dress but I def would!


These are my favourite womenswear collections and looks. I will be posting menswear looks that I loved on my next post. Did you like any of the AW shows? Which ones? Let me know!
