More snippets from LFW…
London Fashion Week is famous for its surprises and its mix of commercial shows by Paul Smith, Nicole Farhi and Jasper Conran are nicely balanced by the interactive, multi-sensory theatre of other designers. Richard Nicoll chose to present a hybrid of showroom, shoot and show while McQ by McQueen’s theatrical show had an element of audience participation at the end. Continue reading

Guest post: What the menswear buyers bought for AW12

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl


It’s menswear day at London Fashion Week today, a slightly odd bit of scheduling as the men’s buying season is pretty much over by now. No worries though, menswear is getting its very own mini UK fashion week(end) from 15th -17th June, which will mean designers can maximise their chances of making the order books for SS13.

LONDON FASHION WEEK AW12: Day 4 – it’s all about McQ

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl


It wasn’t the mainline and so understandably expectations may have been low. The McQ label had become known for wearable pieces, lots of print and jersey, with McQueen motifs to appeal to a younger, less cash-rich customer. McQueen recently bought back its own license with the intention to design McQ inhouse and focus on the rebellious youthful codes of tartan, punk, denim, kilts and other signatures we associate with the British brand.

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

I tried to keep this brief but it didn’t happen so here goes. First up: Margaret Howell. You don’t get many surprises here but that’s OK. With some designers I like to know what I’m getting and for AW12 we’re getting the perfect white shirt, trad fairisles, fitted twinsets, schoolgirl box-pleated skirts, indestructable tweed trench coats (an update on my navy wool one that kept the biting chill out all weekend) and boyish blazers. To finish off – low side ponytails, penny loafers and darling little olive green Tam-o-shanter hats. Continue reading

London Fashion Week AW12: Day 1

Day one of London Fashion week is traditionally a bit of a soft launch but in reality yesterday was as busy as I have ever seen it. Clearly the days of the privileged few having exclusive access to the shows are over and you know what? It’s all for the good of the industry. Continue reading

Food is the new fashion so forgive me for getting excited over the following foodie news:

PENHALIGON’S FOR MEADHAM KIRCHHOFF SCENTED CHOCOLATES!
Lucky front row show-goers (not me then) at the Meadham Kirchhoff show are in for a multi-sensory treat. As is becoming their ‘thing’, the models, collection and shows space will be spritzed with Penhaligon’s romantic Eau San Pareil but to add an extra twist, fashion editors can chomp on exclusive scented chocolates specially created by The Chocolate Tree.
