London Fashion Week Favourites : Ashish

I love the cobweb hosiery, I love the american slogan jumpers and the wet look checks. Grungy american high school meets english punk.

London Fashion Week Favourites : Betty Jackson

Oooooh Betty, what a surprise. Definite hints of Charles Anastase's SS10 collection in this. Loving it.

London Fashion Week Favourites : Burberry

Burberry started the show with outerwear, which is unusual. But when you have as many coats in your collection as this, it makes sense. Loving the clear mac cape with black piping.

London Fashion Week Favourites : Charles Anastase

Charles Anastase can do no wrong in my eyes. Last year he wooed me, this year he has made me fall in love. I named him as my one to watch on my Elle intern application, and i'm glad I did. What a collection. Probably my favourite designer after Luella. There's tailoring, there's femininity, playful yet strict, in a wide palette of colours including those lovely nudes and creams as seen below. The velvet jumpsuits are a seventies reinvention success story. Bravo Charles.

London Fashion Week Favourites : Daks

Heritage, quilted full maxi skirts and leather. Daks you have gone one up from last season.

London Fashion Week Favourites : Erdem

Erdem - The print master. The floral of last season now moves on to impressive digital. I love the black jumper and the multi-coloured maxi crossover top dress. Once again, Erdem you have provided me with clothes I feel like I need.

London Fashion Week Favourites : Holly Fulton

A great continuation from last season. Instantly recognisable as Holly Fulton.

London Fashion Week Favourites : House of Holland

I prefer this collection so so so much more than his previous. It's heritage, it's candy stripes,it's patchwork and it's fun. It reminds me of something Luella would have done, the jackets in particular look like the riding one I have by Luella. I wouldn't be surprised if she inspired him. I Can't wait to get my hands on the bingo ball tights, another HH pair to add to the collection me thinks.

London Fashion Week Favourites : Issa

Last season we saw silk turbans and flowing drapes of rich fabric brights. This season the draping continues but in those lovely autumnal colours that are running right through the collections. The head pieces have been replaced with chic little caps. Amazing.

London Fashion Week Favourites : Mark Fast

There was so much hype around this collection, and it's no wonder. The intricacy of the knit blows my mind. The pieces are truly a work of art. I have provided some close-ups so you can really understand the kind of skill that went into constructing them.
