LFW Day 5: Catwalk Round Up

Well that’s it for another season, LFW is officially over, but before the spotlight shifts to Milan, let’s take a sneaky peek at the highlights from the fifth and final day.

After the power players (Burberry, Christopher Kane) stomped all over ‘Mad Monday’, this was most definitely ‘Terrific Tuesday’ (see what I did there?!).

Fashion East, Meadham Kirchhoff, Simone Rocha and Anya Hindmarch to name just a few that closed LFW for another season to much aclaim.

Here’s my view on the top shows of the day…

Giles: Cara has been pretty selective this fashion week, walking in only a handful of shows, which included this one. Surprisingly though, she wasn’t the name on everyone’s lips today; rumoured Harry Styles’ squeeze, Kendall Jenner was the one who took centre stage. Looking gorgeous in a monochrome asymmetric dress, complete with poker straight punk locks and topped off with electric blue eye make-up, she looked every inch the celeb model. Other highlights included the cute buckled shoes and loafers each model sported, giving the runway a low key, approachable feel. Or maybe Giles just saw the Sibling models going flying earlier this week and decided to play it safe in flats?!

Want to know a secret? Of course you do! OK, well……V V Brown will be hosting an exclusive event on Shopcade’s LFW Party Bus on 17th Feb and we have the inside scoop on the lady herself right here! Find out what’s in her Shopcade this season, the lowdown on her vintage business and who she’s championing @ LFW this season. 

Hey V V,  so spill…what’s in your Shopcade this season? Lots of my fave colours- white, yellow and silver.

How did you first come up with your trademark retro look? I don’t really have this look anymore. 2009 was when I released my first album and I was very much into retro fashion but with my new album Samson and Delilah (2013) and between 2010- present I have gradually moved onto loving fashion that is a little more minimalist and encompasses structure and an appreciation for design.

Tell us about www.vvvintage.com (it’s amazing by the way!) What made you want to set this up? We believe in sustainability and ethical fashion. We recycle fabrics and make items of clothing that are amazing but contribute towards an environmental cause.

Any emerging designers you’ve been particularly proud of finding and promoting on V V Vintage? Mary Benson. We are very big fans.
