London Fashion Week S/S 11, Day Three

On day three at London Fashion Week S/S 11 I saw the Mary Katrantzou, Julien Macdonald, Antonio Berardi and Richard Nicoll shows which were all stunning.

Mary Katrantzou kicked off the day at the old Eurostar terminal in Waterloo station, the most incredible venue with an arched glass exterior and high ceilings. The acoustics were great for the upbeat catwalk tunes.

Backstage at Mary Katrantzou:

Mary was inspired by interiors for this collection and designed the infamous lampshade skirt which I loved! For those fond of Katrantzou’s prints they were not let down, the show was full of her signature bright graphic prints.

Next, was Julien Macdonald which I almost missed completely, so I snuck in the back and watched the models snake round the rows of fashionistas. It was quite possibly my favourite show from the week – super sexy! Take a look at the video for it in action.

Antonio Berardi gave us an elegant and romantic collection. My favourite moment was when the opening bars of the Charlie and the Chocolate Factory song ‘Pure Imagination’ were played just before the models walked – pure nostalgia!

Finally, the day finished with fashion favourite Richard Nicoll. I spied Hannah Marshall sneaking in late to gain a front row view. Nicholl was inspired by ‘minimal glamour’ and boldly stated after the show: ‘What we sell is dresses’. Keep them coming!
