Bora Aksu

Finally my highlights from day 1 at LFW! I have been extremely busy but I still wanted to show you my favourite shows! First up was Bora Aksu which was full of fairytale delicate light fabrics with sheer layers and an edited use of crochet. A colour palette of white, nude and navy blue dominated the collection infused with appliqué and cutout details. The models entered the runway and in non traditional form sat in a group at the head of the runway then one by one they executed and elegantly glided down the catwalk to be captured by the awaiting photographers. Bora debuted his first ever eyewear collection designed by Tom Davies which complimented the light palette, embellished with dragonflies they symbolised the transformative nature of beauty. 

Eudon Choi

For SS15 Eudon Choi stepped away from the 60's nod (last season) and opted for a more ready to wear but still eye catching collection. As usual Choi kept to his mastered talent of combining masculine shapes and feminine prints whilst providing effortless style. Taking inspiration from artist Geogia O'Keeffe's personal style he described his collection as a "homage to the beauty and power of simplicity" which was definitely reflected in the show. Features of black on black tailoring against punches of floral and white panels was he main theme. My favourite look, a yellow and cobalt jacquard structured blazer worn over a sleeveless tuxedo and cigarette trousers was flawless and avoided being frumpy though well cut lines and attention to proportion. Some pieces had a little too much prairie inspired looks with lace and ruffles unusually like Choi. However on the whole a great collection with reworked trench coats and overally chic.

Fyodor Golan

Each season, this design duo is the one I always look forward to viewing. Always full of super bright colours and sheen, Fyodor Golan didn't disappoint. From the location at Waterloo Vaults hidden under a graffitied bridge, I knew we would be in for a treat!
Celebrating digital romanticism through ready to wear pieces free from restraints, the duo infused 90's rave culture influence of acid colours and plastic textures. The largest of midi dresses with embellished iridescent and neon plastic motifs were worn with sky high platform heels whilst distorted images of flowers and footballers adorned the line creating screen like images that showcased digital reality. I absolutely loved this collection and could only dream of wearing that yellow midi dress! 

Paul Costelloe

After the Fyodor Golan show I jumped in a taxi and headed straight to Paul Costelloe just in time for the presentation. This collection was incredible, full of cocoon silhouettes, jacquard prints and 60's smock dresses paired with unstructured beehives to match. The playful addition of cute socks and chunky platform ankle boots really took the look into modern day. The Dublin born designer kept to his signature style of elegance with a luxurious yet playful feel.... utterly divine!
