London Fashion Week A/W ’12 Guest Blog: Day One

We’re thrilled to introduce one of our favorite fashion bloggers, Tala Samman of Myfashdiary.com, to give us a daily update on London Fashion Week for the Fall 2012 season. And a big thank you to Tala, for hosting our own Editorial Director Melissa Liebling-Goldberg’s NYC Fashion Week updates. Enjoy!

As soon as I touched down in London from Dubai after a week long in Dubai, I rushed out for the first show of the day – Corrie Nielsen. Corrie’s collection was very Victorian and Scottish inspired, and featured Drape, lace and a great attention the detail. The collection was no short than a fairytale inspired setting. Great collection from the former Fashion Fringe Winner!

Second stop – Fyodor Golan! This is a brand worth watching – Harvey Nichols snapped them up for S/S’12 and I couldn’t wait to see what they had in store for us this A/W’12 season. The design duo are great with mixing textures, and each piece exuded quality and structure. Also loved the model that was painted in green glitter!

Following on to… Turkish designer based in London, Bora Aksu! This season, Bora toned down a notch with the edginess. We saw pastels, greys, with a mix of brights as well as some masculine pieces such as blazers and vests. Bora Aksu collaborated with handbag brand, Bracher Emden for this collection, with models sporting super luxe pieces from the collection.

The last show of the day for me… Jean-Pierre Braganza! Another brand that has collaborated with Bracher Emden for A/W’12. What I loved most about this collection, was the great variety of graphic prints as well as the mix of purples featured in the collection. The Asymmetric hems made every piece interesting in this A/W’12 collection. The collection included a mix of Jacquard, metallics, fur sleeves and structured cocoon sleeves.
