Mary Kartrantzou a collection this morning full of vivid and vibrant prints, yellow, green, shocking pink, azure and black with stunning holographic and silver panels worked in. She really brought these reflective shapes to life, from her use of folds which rippled around the neck or the bust. I love the whole concept of this collection, and is very much her signature style.

“I’m proud to be here. I am always aware that there are so many young and talented people appearing in fashion all the time – so I’m always trying to find a way to say what I have to say, but say it better each season so I still qualify for a place here.” John Rocha told vogue
His latest collection was a strong step in the right direction to hang on to that place – whimsical romance, via laser cut silk chiffon that made petal explosions of tunic dresses in peach, nude, tan and turquoise, was undercut by sharp tailoring for over sized black or white coats, some slashed at the shoulder to free chiffon panels. Inspired by Irish American painter Sean Scully, Rocha mixed textures and shapes haphazardly when delicate silk jumpsuits featured lace panels and stiff crochet creations hung over chiffon pantaloons, followed by layered up shade-on-shade chiffon trapeze dresses that bounced around the thigh. More elegant were the chiffon all-in-ones – and Rocha’s new Claddagh inspired jewellery line made for just the right level of gold bling.

I seriously LOVE LOVE LOVE this collection

“The collection is based around that spirit – where everything appears candy-coated and pretty on the outside. Yet, within, lies a constant darkness,” explained Kinder Aggugini in his show notes of his inspiration. “I have taken little pretty children’s dresses, opened them up at the seams and inserted juxtaposing fabrics. These are usually darker and more textured.”
I adore the grown-up interpretation of childlike style, with the cute cirls and colourful dresses, It was day dressing but in a theatrical way. His collection was full of pretty flowing frocks, swishy skirts swagged up into drapes at the back and I especially loved the shocking pink and black gowns with punched out holes the detail of his whole collection is outstanding.
Kinder Aggugini is definitely another rising star in the industry.

Osman Yousefzada has always wanted to do an all-white collection, but it wasn't until his recent signing with an Italian licensee that he felt he could truly do the idea justice. As he pointed out, "White leaves you nothing to hide behind." Which makes it a perfectly pure canvas on which a designer can bare his essence.
His passion for his subject is obvious in the perfection that Osman insists upon for every detail - his name might not be as long these days but he's still set to be big news.

Fairytale princess is the first thing that comes to mind when I look at this collection, the delicacy of each gown is just so beautiful and whimsical, i can't take my eye's of them.
It is what every little girl dreams of wearing, Jenny Packhan always brings sense of fantasy to her collections, and I really love this.

This is what I call sequins around the world, wow every piece in the collection is embellished with stunning sequins and not only that but each piece portrays a holiday destination in the world, I see Hawaii, New York, Paris and Africa, We also saw the designer’s capsule collection inspired by Nike. I love the free thinking of this collection, its so refreshing.

“THAT was such amazing casting,” Erin O’Connor enthused following a PPQ show that featured only black models. “It really puts paid to any rumours of discrimination at London Fashion Week. So many beautiful strong girls. It's great for fashion.”

Despite the debates about the casting, the PPQ duo didn’t stray far from the overriding theme of the Seventies in their designs which saw the models – with Nefertiti hair, painted on Twiggy like lower lashes, and blush pink cheeks in an array of pretty, colourful dresses, strutting to funky soul.

I loved this whole collection and I think the casting was fantastic, its about time there are more coloured models, I do hope this will have an effect and be an ongoing thing.

Lily Parker and Ben Grimes are part of London's new wave of young women designers with something to say. "As a brand, we just want to be modern and fresh, and not too extreme—so we'll wear everything."

I absolutely love the architectural structure of this collection, not only is it so intriguing to look at, its very flattering on a women's body.
