London Fashion Week

...And after New York, Fashion Week comes to London. For me London is always an exciting fashion week with most of my favourite designers, plus it's the home turf!

Boy, did they live up my expectations! The designers certainly did not fail to please and the FROW were out in force.

Fashionistas aside, I must admit Andy Murray turning up to the Burberry Porsum show was a highlight for me and my friends!

Yes guys, that is Mr. Murray on the same front row as fashion heavyweights (pah!) Alexa Chung, Sarah Jessica Parker and Poppy Delevigne.

Now for the fashion! My favourite two collections from Spring/Summer 2012 in London were by Holly Fulton and Christopher Kane.

I adore the graphic prints that emerge in each of Holly Fulton's lines. Flashes of yellow transported us back to February's Autumn/Winter line, but this collection encapsulate a sunny, Sixties beach holiday... bikinis, sunglasses and sunshine prints included.

Christopher Kane's show was a departure from the neon-fest we've come to expect from him, instead favouring a more muted colour palette with shimmering brocade fabrics. This collection is a triumph for Kane, we're seeing him turn to more detailed cuts and modern looks, yet with the impressive confidence that a white shirt is a classic wardrobe stable.
