London Fashion Week’s top looks for Autumn/Winter 2010

What a week! The first of this year’s London Fashion Weeks was the best we’ve had yet. It was almost too much to witness. There is so much talent in this city and it is wonderful to see London’s seven days in the spotlight commanding so much respect from the fashion community. It’s worked over 25 years to get where it is today and it’s been worth every minute of effort. You will never find a more creative bunch than the designers who showcase their work at London Fashion Week every February and September. I am honoured and humbled to be invited to such prestigious presentations of art every season. Below, please find what I believe to be some of the best of the best for Autumn/Winter 2010.

Pre-fall Collections 2010 report

It’s pre-fall 2010 time and the designers are certainly keeping us all entertained with a wide variety of new looks. There are some repeated trends such as sheer fabrics and chunky jewelry. Unfortunately harem pants seemed to have survived another year as well although they are less gold sequin flash and more black swinging fabric. There also seems to be an emphasis on the colour red for cocktail dresses and formal gowns as seen at Diane von Furstenberg, Michael Kors, Oscar de la Renta and Carolina Herrera. Shoulder padded shoulders have placed a nice curve on what was last season a strong point outwards from the collarbone. It’s a nice change adding a touch more femininity to the collections, bar Versace who stuck with a strong angled shoulder for the season preview.
Here’s my top ten looks from the collections shown….

1. Oscar de la Renta
2. Carolina Herrera
3. Donna Karan
4. Chanel
5. Rachel Roy
6. Versace
7. Devi Kroell
8. Alexander Wang
9. Burberry Prorsum
10. J Mendel
