London Fashion Week – celebrating its 30th year in 2014 – and we were on the ground to see it unfold. What will you be buying in stores this coming spring/summer 2015?

  1. Feminine, flowy, sheer dresses and skirts.
  2. Monochrome prints; also clashing colours and loud botanical designs.
  3. Pale blue and cool citrus tones.
  4. All white – pant suits, dresses, coats and skirts.
  5. Feathers, tulle, sequins and ruffles.

Here’s what LFW was like on the ground…

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.

Here was some live filming going to air across the internet. This year’s event has been hailed as the most technologically advanced Fashion Week to date, reflecting the city’s status as a leading tech capital of the world.

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.

The Profile Magazine chicks were lucky enough to attend Runway Twenty.Twelve on Saturday night. A super fab fashion show presented by Cachelle Model Management in Cairns at Tjapukai Aboriginal Cultural Park. Champers, cocktails, music, food and fashion … what more could a girl ask for?

Maybe to meet a celeb or two? We did bump in to uber cool top designer, Wayne Cooper, who I discovered is from the same part of East London as we loved. He even hung out at Broadway Market like we used to!

But who really wants to read about a fashion show when you can watch one? A sneaky peek sample here x
