LFW is earmarked on the fashion month calendar for its constant presentation and support of young fashion brands. This Sunday was no different with labels showcasing on the schedule for only the first or second time, including Natasha Zinko, Hill & Friends, and Newgen designer Danielle Romeril. Next to these were titan brands like Anya Hindmarch, Paul Smith, Vivienne Westwood, Temperley London and Alexander McQueen.

I loved Danielle Romeril’s presentation, which saw a progressive play on proportion, texture and silhouette, and accessories darling Emma Hill’s new label, Hill & Friends, showcased a short film aimed at making the fashion crowd happy. Russian Natasha Zinko’s soda-fun mink-trimmed dresses and jean jackets combined old-school glamour with cheerful takes on raw-edged denim and a fruit salad of apple, pineapple and cherry embellishments.

It was at the big brands' shows like Paul Smith where wonderful tailoring and sophisticated colour palettes shone. Alexander McQueen’s show was exciting not only for the label’s return to its home, but for the stunning collection itself – soft and romantic with a sharp edge, including fur-trimmed duster coats and pastel brocade dresses against black leather and chain harnesses. 

Temperley showed sophisticated crystal mesh dresses and beautifully embroidered separates with a Georgian overtone, and Anya Hindmarch's Pong-inspired, rubix cube of a set set the fashion crowd alight. 

All in all, it was a day full of sublime fashion and diverse perspectives. I'm excited to see how the younger generation evolves into becoming the established - with amazing role models showing them how to get there.
