Insider at Fashion Week: Day 3

Tuesday 27 September 2011
Words Spindle

Sunday was definitely a calmer day. With less shows as I have been ‘forgotten’ by many PR’s this season, my first highlight was an early afternoon start with Izmaylova. As we waited to be let, a certain Z-lister entered into Vauxhall. I have seen this ‘Celeb’ many times at shows and she is more concerned with being seen on Front Row then concentrating on her music career.

Maybe she needs to put her efforts elsewhere.

But anyhow, the show was actually rather good. With the inspiration of a Train’s journey (Romantic and Glamorous and certainly not from my Train experience), the collection consisted of light beiges, feathers and panels with feminine floor sweeping gowns and gorgeous bellboys to help with any luggage.  The show was certainly more different than the others in London and had a slight artist edge that you would normally expect from somewhere like Paris or New York Fashion week. After Izmaylova, I headed over to Unconditional at the old sorting office. As I took my seat, I noticed that the Designer, Philip Stephens was actually helping out seating people and having a chat to anyone he knew. I love that he was getting involved in all aspects of his show and that is so rare with designers now. Unconditional’s Collection had some very strong pieces for Men and Women featuring different inspirations from tailoring, evening wear to Casual. I also loved the accessories they used in the show including the leather harnesses, arm covers and studded belts which all added to the collection of beautiful dresses and fabulous shoes.
