#LFW: Recap

David Koma:

Hello Fashionistas! I know this post is a bit late, since London Fashion Week ended on Tuesday. I apologize for the delay, I've been busy working on some other projects. However, I did browse the vogue website daily to see what certain designers presented. Now, I must admit, I had several in mind that I knew were going to deliver, which were: Tom Ford, Burberry Prorsum, Preen, Marchesa and McQ. Unfortunately, from that list, only one came through for me, the others that I chose to share with you guys are all surprises. Here are my choices for the best collection for the Ready-to-Wear Spring/Summer 2015 (feel free to disagree with my choices).

(above) and below are by David Koma - who is the artistic director for Thierry Mugler - featured a lot of cut-outs and precise tailoring in his collection. I choice these two as examples, although there were so many pieces that I absolutely loved, because they for me are sexy and chic without being over the top. 

Matthew Williamson:

Who doesn't like a colorful, vibrant maxi in the Spring/Summer months? The above piece is so much more than a simple maxi. The colors alone make it wearable for so many occasions, whether it's on vacation in the tropics, a beach wedding or date night. The belt is also a nice added touch. Cinch those waists ladies! ^_^
Below, is a contrast to the look above; this look is about business. The fashion forward business woman who rules in the boardroom and is stylish while doing it. Beautiful pastel color, which will be on trend next year.

Emilia Wickstead:

The above and below pictures made my list because the designer did something that is hard to do. She included pockets, not on the side, but right up front... and made it stylish. Usually I wouldn't go for this because I've seen it not work far too many times. But looking at these dresses, it just works.  

Preen by Thornton Bregazzi:

Loving the colors top and bottom. The fringe on the bottom dress is so much fun. Couldn't you see yourself going salsa dancing in this number? I love the colors, the fit and the little bit of exposed cleavage. This dress is haute!

Ethologie by Casper Garvida:

It's all about the belt for these two looks. The dress and skirt ensemble are not really doing too much for me, but the corset belts are everything! I think they are called DeAngeli corset belts. Cinch me up!

Julien Macdonald:

The bondage inspired dress above is fabulous! I love the details of the cut-out shapes that went into this creation, it's almost like art. 
Below is a gown that I think could work as a wedding dress. Call me crazy but this would be a fashionistas couture moment.

Syyed Nisar of Kingston University:

I can't!
Would you wear this? If so, where?

  1. Awesome outfits!

  2. I love everything except for the costumes.

    1. Lol! Glad you said it, because I can't classify those looks as ready-to-wear (not to anywhere other than a costume party).

  3. Most of the pieces are beautiful and wearable! I don't know about the costumes though :-). Great post!

  4. Some of this outfit are little bit crazy but creative !

  5. Love the outfits but some are beautiful pieces of art (not wearable)
    I salute the creativity ;)

    1. I agree with you. This is certainly creative.

  6. Love David Koma, his clothes are stunning and of impeccable quality!! I went to his show last season and couldn't believe my eyes... Not a single piece I didn't fall in love with!


  7. The last photograph was made for lady gaga I'm sure lol! She is one of the few that could wear something like this n' make it cool!

  8. I loved David Koma and Emilia Wickstead! Lol - the last two are seriously too much. I understand that fashion knows no limits, but the limit should have been made there! Lol.
