Day Five: LFW
The Fashion East show, celebrating its 10th anniversary, was held on the old Eurostar platform, with shows from Lulu Kennedy (looking amazing in Louise Grey), Felicity Brown, Heikki Salonen, and Simone Rocha. Felicity Brown's designs blazed in tangerine and blue, romantic ruffles and scrunched plaits, and Simone Rocha's debut collection (right) was futuristic and fashion-forward in sheer fabrics, cut-out designs, and metal collars.
Burberry came home in style with a catwalk collection that screamed wardrobe classics and the everlasting Burberry brand. After years showing at Milan Fashion Week, Burberry sent steel invites for its grand return. Jourdann Dunn walked with a turquoise bag on one arm, followed by an array of beautiful biker jackets, jodphurs, moto pants, minted silk pleats, mixed animal prints (yes, you can combine snake and leopard and look amazing) and bright, bright colours. More seasonless than spring, Burberry (left) has hit every trend and taken it up a notch - proved by Anna Wintour's smile from the front row! The towering heels caused a few tumbles - one tottering model whipped them off and walked anyway! Now that's style.
Burberry nailed it again with biker chick cool - think sultry grey eyes and dewy skin. Look no further for your night-out beauty!
Jonathan Saunders had his model's hair styled by Tigi, with big '40s prom updo's.
Jaeger had Laura Bailey, Beatrice Ong, Pixie Lott, Rachel Stevens and Calum Best on the front row; whilst Richard Nicholl popped in to wish Lulu Kennedy luck and the Dellal's watched Schwab's grunge cool.
Ashish pulled in Paloma Faith, VV Brown, Victoria Hervey, Hannah Marshall, Jodie Harsh and Marina Diamandis (from Marina and the Diamonds).
LFW best-dressed Day Five:
Sarah Jessica Parker gave me some serious jacket-envy at Burberry (the jacket was a Burberry design, what an homage!) so today she is definitely my best-dressed (below right)!
