Irish designer Paul Costelloe was the first designer to take to the LFW stage
"For my spring/summer 2010 collection I have built on my love of tailoring and pushed the Paul Costelloe brand in a new direction but I have not neglected my key strengths: fabric, cutting and colour," explained Costelloe.
"As an established name at LFW, I think it is important to always reinvent yourself," noted Costelloe, adding: "I am also delighted to be opening LFW and to be part of its 25th anniversary."

Eun Jeong translated her collection as a series of silver and white angelic looks, delicately strewn with lace, frills, flounces, ruffles, beads and pearls. while drapes and swags cascaded down baby doll dresses, neat pencil skirts and bodices. Layers of lace and ribbons tumbled from the shoulders, pearls graduated in curves around hips and hems and bib fronts were built up with chocolate box trim, billowing as they went down the catwalk.
I really love the simple elegance of this collection, lace and beading can often end up looking old and granny like, but I love every pioece from this collection, very chic and elegant.

“It’s so great to be here. I think I might have been a little bit hysterical today but it’s great to be on-schedule,” EMILIO DE LA MORENA told Vogue backstage after the show. “I love the collection, it’s so feminine and very beautiful.”
The collection had a delicate sophistication with simple and structural designs, with gorgeous detail and stunning shaping .
Not only did de la Morena show a beautiful collection, he showed why he’s on the on-schedule line-up – and he promises more next time. “It’s going to be bigger and better,” he told vogue.

Bora Aksu’s spring/summer 2010 collection was inspired by he idea that beauty comes from within, an after seeing his collection I can tell there is alot of beauty within, I absolutely adore this collection, the detail, shapes and utter beauty is just to die for.

“The starting point was a children’s story,” explained Aksu, backstage, referring to Oscar Wilde’s The Happy Prince. “It’s a simple story but I was impressed so much by it.” Add to that the story’s underlying message of inner beauty, the Seventies band Kiss specifically their make-up - and all translated into Aksu’s signature romantic 18th Century vision.

“I had this picture in my mind of pretty prom dresses, and how they could be made more beautiful and this idea of throwing paint over them so that it dripped fluidly down them. So then I looked at appliqué and print,” explained Aksu.

Tribal music and animal noises set the tone for this Sass & Bide collection with humour and sex appeal, arrrh I seriously love every single detail of this collection, it is deffinetly my favourite of Sass & Bide;s work so far. The embellishments were so delicate yet gave a very strong atmosphere, The whole collection was full of panels of Amazonian beading and charm-festooned tasselled bags off-set the simple elegance of beachy parachute dresses, harem pants and playsuits.

The palette began in dusky peaches, greys, pinks and purples, progressed through more vibrant map-like blues and greens, and finally assumed a thunderstorm assortment of charcoals, midnight and black. I loved the whimsical atmosphere around this collection, the draping is stunning, the only this was that there was not much variation from the main theme.
