LFW S/S 11 Highlight: Mary Katrantzou's Lampshade Skirts

With London Fashion Week A/W 11 almost upon us and therefore in the forefront on our minds (of course, like, when isn’t it!?), I have been thinking about my highlight from S/S 11. After thinking long and hard about this, there were several contenders to the London Fashion Week Swarowski jewelled crown.

The shortlist included Julien Macdonald’s sexy, sheer collection , the pure shock and hilarity of Janice Dickenson flashing at the LOVE Magazine party, Erdem’s picturesque open air theatre setting and his beautiful floral collection, the 70s revival at Giles and the Mary Katrantzou lampshade skirts.

The winner is...Mary Katrantzou’s lampshade skirts. Who would have thought that our favourite everyday household appliance could be transformed into this? Katrantzou mused: "With this collection, I wanted to put the room on the woman, rather than the woman in the room." Mary, we salute you!
