London Fashion Week...



Luella's AWO9 Collection is very utilitarian inspired. Lots of Layers, Lots of Pockets and lots of buttons. Great military details – epaulettes, brass buttons – zip detailing at the bottom of cropped trousers and delicious accessories. Luella's trademark prom dresses with an edge came in stripes, metallics, florals and silky fabrics.


Erdem Moralioglu Autumn/Winter 09 Collection has "propelled him into a place where he could be the new Christian Lacroix of London" says style.com. His short, doll-like, Empire lined dresses with puffed-up skirts were a step away from his floaty romantic summer collection - "I thought, She's not running free and romantic in the meadows this season," he said. "Now she's visited nightclubs and gone home on the bus."

The cutout black lace applied dramatically to red duchesse satin, and stylized red, purple, and black chrysanthemums or tiny yellow violas embroidered by hand were most certainly entrancing.
