Autumn/Winter 2012 London Fashion Week: Issa

Issa London - a loved British brand with outfits designed by Daniella Helayel, showed a stunning new 2012 collection this week. The theme for the collection was inspired by a Trans-Siberian journey, where the much loved wrap dresses were designed with bright greens, oranges and blues. Some outfits were very 60's inspired and towards the end of the show we saw some stunning long silk evening gowns, as well as a gorgeous lace mini-dress (pictured above).

Overall it showed that Issa London have an exciting year ahead with flattering and fitted designs.

Autumn/Winter 2012 London Fashion Week: Vivienne Westwood


The Vivienne Westwood Red Label fashion show took place today at the beautiful Goldsmith's Hall in London. The event celebrated true British fashion at its best. The celebrity sightings were diverse and included Janice Dickinson, Pete Burns, Sadie Frost and Nick Rhodes from Duran Duran.  

The collection focused on the 2012 autumn/winter looks and included a mix of stripes, tartans and vintage styles. With the silk evening dresses, there was a sense of elegance and sophistication with the outfits. The colours for most of the looks were soft pastels and neutrals. Some fashion reports have commented that there was less extravagance that we would normally expect from a Vivienne Westwood collection. Either way, the British designer's collection is still fabulous!
