FASHION - Fashion Week AW10 Day 1

I'm so glad I booked time off from my full-time job to fully immerse myself in Fashion Week. I arrived and had a quick wander around the exhibition then bumped into fellow bloggers from Fashion Daydreams and Save Our Shoes quickly followed by some lovely gals from 1000 Heads - check out their super stylish outfits below.

A bevy of beauties from Kiss me Deadly were wandering round in next to nothing, but it certainly got the lingerie brand noticed.

Loving those boots

I went to the Saffron Knight show at The Strand Palace Hotel and although I had high hopes they weren't really realised. I'll let you make up your own mind but I just thought it was lacking and didn't really suit my tastes. A little bit 'kids dress-up cowboys and Indians' with some blue velvet and flappy bits of fabric. The aim was more of a distinctive fusion of British and Jamacian influences - I would have liked to see more of the midnight blue and less of the orange. I think what also killed it for me was that the garments didn't seem to fit the models particularly well and the lighting in the venue was a bit like you were watching the show in your living room.

My last stop of the day was the Gemma Slack presentation which was a short video. The collection was inspired by Dracula and had a Victorian feel with a couple of surprising elements like spiked studding along the arms of one of the coats. I liked the jewellery collaboration best 'Rowland vs Slack' which used delicately flowing chains to go with the collection's sculptured leather accessories. The room was totally packed so I didn't get to see as much as I would have liked but here are some pics...
