The expectations were very high from the designers of London Fashion Week to create unique and epitome designs of fashion. I think it’s justifiable to say that they have lived up to the expectations and have mesmerized people. There were some marvel moments when designers like Maria Grachvogel created sparks with the lovely idea of dropping ink and letting it flow freely on the dresses. Remarkable entities were like the vintage handicrafts and prints and floral prints coming back to spot light alike the floral embroideries.  Apart from that the luxurious textures and men’s- wear-turned-upside-down-for-female has also taken its place in the ramp.  This year there was lot experimentation on the designer’s part and lots of Satin and slouch was used to walk past the ‘safe’ zone. Classic wow moments were when Christopher Kane, a Scottish designer used lead-free crystal to trim his sustainable dress for the World Global Firm.

Day one started with the collection of Paul Costelloe which reflected theme of Paris in the 70s. Vibrant and multi-colored, these dresses tweaked in fresh mustard and fuscia tartans and also in flashy floral prints.

However in this pretty crowd of colors and dresses nobody made more dramatic entry than Vivienne Westwood Red Label’s Collection. It was not just the dresses that stole our eyes but also the tacky make-up.

The next hour dished straight into Maria Grachvogel’s collection at The Savoy. The theme looked like Grimm’s fairytale which featured her signature draping and prints mixed together to form a very dramatic effect. The dresses fit harmoniously in the right curves in the women’s body.

This blue flared jumpsuit was among the ones that stirred strong response from the audiences, mainly due to the sleek cut and monochromatic use of colors of the hair and cherry red lipstick.  With a sedated palette and basic embellishments, most of the collection worked on silhouette as a print and the color palate was muted.

Spark of innovation could be seen on the ramp with beautiful mismatching layers to the point that it became a key trend of the London Fashion Week 2014.  Brands like Burberry, Temperley, and Peter Pilotto used altered versions of the prints and made this print everyone’s favorite.

Among all these intense looks there were also some LOL moments when One Directioners pushed through the crowd to get a glimpse of Harry Styles and his amazing hair.
