As we say goodbye to London Fashion Week, we’d like to look back at some of our favourite shows this season…

Luella

Who was there?
It was a family affair at the Luella show. Sir Bob Geldof watched daughter Pixie strut the catwalk from the front row with his other daughter, Peaches. Other celebs spotted at the show included Kanye West, Erin O’Connor, and Nicola Roberts. Later on, Kiera Knightly, Rupert Friend, Emma Watson, and model Chanel Iman were seen at the post-show dinner party at Kettner’s eatery in Soho.

The Look
Bartley used her feminine perspective to create a collection full of flattering dresses and eye-catching trousers. Her ready to wear pieces had plenty of fun, girly accents including shimmering tights, metallic zippers, and tulle skirts. After another brilliant performance by the designer, it’s easy to understand why she was recently voted British Designer of the Year.

Who was there?
The designer took part in the On/Off event at the Science Museum where twelve designers were showcased over the last week. Celebrities such as Erin O’Connor,Tess Daly, Jade Parfitt, and Beverly Knight have been spotted at these shows.¬†

The Look
Yousefzada’s Autumn 2009 collection was a stand out at London Fashion Week. His pieces, consisting mainly of fitted and flared wool dresses, came in versatile shades of greys, blacks, and blues. Anyone who can get their hands on any of the designer’s items for their Fall wardrobe is a very lucky woman! But what I want to know, how did the models walk in those sky-high, chunky shoes?!

Issa

Who was there?
The Issa show at the Natural History Museum very well might have been the most star-studded event at London Fashion Week. Celebrity fans included Blake Wood,Jenny Frost, Tamsin Egerton, Peaches Geldof, Will Young, Leah Wood, and Daisy Lowe. The paps must have had a field day, eh?

The Look
Since the collection was inspired by monks (the bald guys with the ugly brown robes), we were surprised at how fast we fell in love with Issa’s Fall 2009 line. The beautifully draped dresses, some of which were made with zebra patterned fabric, played upon the wannabe Grecian goddess in us all.

Giles Deacon

Who was there?
Kanye West was spotted looking on in amazement at Deacon’s runway production.”That’s art…my favourite [show] so far”, he said as he left the venue. David Walliams and Lauren Budd looked like a happy couple as they, too, left the Deacon show.

The Look
Everyone knows that anything goes at a Giles Deacon show. With edgy pieces like latex tops, fur covered gloves, and inflatable jackets, and accessories ranging from handcuffs to tattoos, it’s apparent that the Central Saint Martins graduate¬†had fun with his Fall 2009 collection. Receiving rave reviews, it’s Deacon’s eccentric taste and innovative approach to fashion that have so many in the fashion world enthralled with his work.
