Paul Costello A/W09 Catwalk Show

This morning we woke up tingling with anticipation, yes ladies London Fashion Week has officially begun. As the crème de le crème of the fashion world flock to our famous capital it’s time to sit back and relax in our front row thrones, and let the show begin.

Before we get onto our fabulous fashion rundown, we felt we had to share this important nugget of information with you. Make the most of this fashion week ladies as next year it will no longer be held at the Natural History Museum (gasp). London Fashion Week has a new home and as usual we’re here to fill you in on all the dirt. BFC chairman Harold Tillman has announced the new home will be…Somerset House. Enough gossiping, back to the task at hand…

True to form the fabulous Mr Costelloe opened London Fashion Week, being the first up is an unenviable task, but he rose to the challenge. His fall line for 09 was ‘Park Avenue’ perfection with a heavy emphasis on the 60′s and 70’s. Gorgeous a line dresses and collarless coasts in brocade were paraded down the runway. Costelloe’s palette had just enough variation to keep it interesting without looking too chaotic, with metallics and greys followed by the odd injection of hot pink and red. He displayed real variation with simple shifts, chunky knits and even the odd (slightly dubious) jumpsuit.  Simple a line coats with asymmetric zips in soft mohair added to the general lady like chic vibe. Our stand out favourite was the cute silver mini dress, with the ruffled hem and flower adorned shoulder. We want it now. 

Stay tuned for more fashion week news.
