It’s exciting to be a part of London Fashion Week, especially when the sun is shining upon the home and hub – neo-classical landmark, Somerset House. Our pre-show ritual is to indulge in a glass of bubbles in front of the building, overlooking the Thames!

Plenty of fashionistas milled around in the courtyard of Somerset House, where you can watch the shows being live streamed, or get in on the people-watching action.

What’s trending this SS15? Brights will be brighter, punctuated by cool citrus hues as well as striking shades of orange, aqua and hot pink. Vivid graphic botanical prints digitally translated onto soft and sensual fabrics like silk will be popular. Metallic laminated cotton was seen throughout the showcase; the fabric creates sleek and structured lines with elegant translucent fluidity. Optical illusions are on the way too, in tops and skirts featuring geometric patterns on light coloured fabric, covered by mesh to achieve the look. Clashing colours and outrageous designs will be a feature of soon-to-be-released garments, as will sequins, ruffles and feathers.

Asian-inspiration featured heavily during this showcase, not only in terms of some really interesting fashion on the catwalk, but Chinese and Korean models were favoured for many of the sets, and celebs from all regions in Asia attended to cover the major fashion fest.
