London Fashion Week Part One
There’s a saying about putting models in a brown paper bag and they’ll still look good. This year at London Fashion Week, I think certain designers may have taken this term too literally. Why designers spend so much of their show budgets hiring models, only to ‘uglify’ them with ridiculous styling and unfortunate make-up… well, yes, it’s beyond me. I may sound like a fashion party-pooper but someone has to state the obvious…
Better off in a Brown Paper Bag…
You wouldn’t be pleased either…
Selling point: You won’t actually be able to see how you look in the mirror
Whatever you do, don’t like into her eyes... yikes!
Those guys at Topshop have the best sense of humour.
I obviously need some sleep, that’s why I’m wearing my bed sheets…duhh

Designers That Got it Right…
(by choosing not to send their models down the runway looking half-dead, addicted to unmentionable substances or styled for Halloween)
Simple, classic, comfortable with an unexpected quirky colour mix…
Pretty lace, nothing too out of the ordinary here. Maybe even too ordinary for Fashion Week but the buyers will order in bulk.
Very wearable dress, a splash of colour on the lips, hair not too distracting from the clothes– a designer that wants to make some sales!
House of Holland
Minus the silly accessories, we love the colours and the pleats.
Twenty 8 Twelve
Nice to see a fresh face…
