Fashion Week Round Up: London and Paris Edition

Hello Everyone,
Fashion month has flown by so quickly, it's been hard to keep up with a round up for each city! But as September has come to a close we thought we would talk about our favourite shows from both the London and Parish fashion weeks (yes, this is us trying our best to make up for our absence last Sunday).  

London Fashion Week: Burberry

Burberry never fails to disappoint! It's been my favourite designer for years and was even my inspiration for studying fashion at degree level. I always find myself looking to Burberry for inspiration and motivation: my dissertation was even written about the brand, so it's safe to say that Burberry is that one show I look forward to season after season. This year Burberry unveiled their first ever 'see-now' 'buy-now' collection, this created so much hype surrounding the show.  To allow customers to buy the runway collection as they see it is pure genius. 
The show itself brought to life the collection and identity of the brand. The live music at the show composed exclusively for Burberry created a theatrical, show-stopping atmosphere. The clothes themselves were as always beautiful: the detailing in the jackets and coats and styling of each outfit well and truly projects the craftsmanship behind the clothes. Once again Burberry created a magical show that embraced all things British. 

Paris Fashion Week: Valentino

With so many amazing shows at PFW, it was so hard for me to pick just one - but the definite stand-out for me (so far) had to be Valentino. (Zuhair Murad, Isabel Marant and Elie Saab were close contenders!)
Full of gorgeous, bright colours, a mix of silhouettes and of course, embroidery, this collection kept it's roots with references to the brand's Italian history and craftsmanship. The collection was inspired by Hieronymus Bosch's painting The Garden of Earthly Delights, and I think many will agree by saying this was shown through in the gorgeous range of pieces on show. I personally love the more classic Valentino looks like the delicate dresses shown - the detail of the embroidery and sheer materials gives that essence of Italian romanticism at its finest!
