On the second day of fashion week, first stop was the very exciting, 'you never know what to expect' show of Orla Kiely, the queen of print. This season the ''OK'' girl was out of her typing pool, on a safari surrounded by fields and wild animals (in the backdrop that is!) Inspired by girl guides, brownies and Suzy Bishop, models strutted up and down the camping site, exploring the wilderness, catching butterflies inside jars, reading books and made a mere fishnet look oh so fashionable. Add to this a camp fire and the catchy tune ''The Lion Sleeps Tonight'' playing in the background made me want to jump into a cute pinafore and join them in the field....nope I've never been a brownie!

Tops and dresses with 70s inspired silhouettes in pastels and bright orange were adorned with animal motifs and worked with more animal shaped bags, signature print back packs and cute fluffy berets. Shoes were Orla Kiely for Clark's collaboration available from February 2014.

My second stand out show of the day had to be Ashish. This was a show I had always wanted to attend and when that festival inspired glitter wrist band (aka invite) arrived, I literally screamed with delight.  On arriving I had no idea what ticket I had (standing or seated) until I was directed to sit front row so got the best close up pics!
The King of all sequins drew the crowd in from the first outfit which stepped onto the runway, a Coca-Cola sequin vest, sequin striped carrier bag and ripped sequin jeans sported with a golden crown. His inspiration came from the idea of popping down to the off license with your slippers on and jewellery from the previous night. A fun and colourful collection filled with super luxe sportswear, stripes, animal prints, and mismatched socks stepping to the beat of Amerie's ''1 Thing'' in sequin slippers! M&S and Tesco lookalike carrier bags were drenched in sequins and replaced with logos such as S&M and Disco.  Seriously LOVED every minute of it, thanks again Ashish for an amazing show!

What did you think of these collections? Are you a sequins or 70s girl?
