London Spring Fashion Week Post 1

London has always been one of the more experimental fashion weeks. I know some of the lines showing during LFW, but I am unfamiliar with quite a few lines. I am going to use this opportunity to branch out and review well known and lesser know brands. I have also been surprised by the number of ethnic models on the runways in London. I think it is an amazing start an hopefully others will get the memo.
I don’t know much about Gavin Douglas except that he is an exceptional designer who used mostly Black models for this show. The overall collection was great and very colorful with some accordion style dresses. I lloked at his other collections and I loved that it. I will be looking at him in the future.

Sass & Bide are back after a short hiatus with a beautiful collection of featuring the colors black, white, and gold. Some of the dresses looked billowy and Grecian as golden embellishments adorned the chest. The other element of the collection was completely structural and architectural. I always like their collections and am very happy to see them back.
PPQ was amazing. It was full of bright colors and ruffles. At first I wasn’t too sure about the collection, but once I looked at the slide show I was surprised at their use of patterns and color. The collection was full of things that I can totally see Topshop copying in a few months.

Ashish took us on a journey to Spikey Sequins land because they whole collection was full of tropical prints, maps, sequins, and spikes. This was another collection I wasn’t so sure about. I loved last season’s collection, but when I started looking through the slide show, my mind said, “EEEK!” Then the sequins shirts with the slogans on them caught my eye, as well as the sweatshirt with the built in fanny pack.
