Another post straight from the front rows of London Fashion Week from our fabulous guest blogger Tala Samman of Myfashdiary.com.
Day three of London Fashion week! Due to being swamped with work ever since arriving to London on the day of LFW… I ended up only making one show – Marios Schwab! A huge fan of Marios’s work… a young designer but one that has really built a great name for himself here in London, and in the US with his Halston collections. His second season, after leaving Halston mainline, and this would have to be one of my favorite collections from Schwab.
A magical show – everything from the clothes, the ambiance, to the sound track was perfect. The collection featured hats (a key trend for Fall/Winter 2012), lace, creams, as well as lace, mesh and leather inserts. A key trend as seen in other collections are slits – they are everywhere from dresses, skirts to pants. The Color palette included Mint green and burgundy and I especially loved all the embellishments and crystals. This show was definitely one of my favorites for London Fashion Week Fall/Winter ’12.
