London Fashion Week Highlights

So there we have it! The shows are over, the fashion circus has moved on to Milan and now it’s time to take a deep breath and take stock of the styles we’ll be wearing come autumn.

We’ve seen Cara Delevigne cement her place as Queen of the Catwalk (watched on from the FROW by her No. 1 fan and ‘wifey’, Rita Ora) and Jourdan Dunn admirably manage a wardrobe malfunction – but models aside it’s time to talk trends.

Our LFW highlights included the cute collection from a loved-up Christopher Bailey, who showed  heart prints for men and women at Burberry Prorsum. Meanwhile, at Topshop Unique it was well and truly a sequin spangled affair, and whilst Mulberry plumped for picnic blanket plaid Tom Ford took a walk on the wild side with his ethnic inspired collection which was packed with lashings of leopard print.

 

L-R: Burberry Prorsum, Topshop Unique, Tom Ford and Mulberry
