We’re gutted that London Fashion Week is over for another season; SS15 was a pretty strong showing with the likes of Burberry, House of Holland and Mary Katrantzou all presenting stunning collections.

As the fash pack head to Milan for another week of spectacular shows, here’s our take on the final day of the catwalk offering here in London.

Anya Hindmarch: Last season she gave us bags emblazoned with Tony the Tiger and DAZ washing powder logos, which became cult classics for AW14, so what would be in store for us this season? Well another fun ride in effect! Quite literally as it turned out; models sat in giant neon teacups pushed along by skeletons, whilst others strutted down the runway complete with a trail of helium balloons. The overwhelming message was FUN, with a nice nod of back to school as the collection came complete with customisable stickers. Our fave? The ‘Bags Have Feelings Too’ sticker was super cute!

Who made the FROW?  Susie Bubble, Poppy Delevingne and er,  Richard E Grant!

Ashish: Sequins, sequins and er, more sequins! We’ve come to expect this signature from Ashish and once again he did not disappoint for SS15. Rainbow hues were used throughout, whether that was on ripped baggy jeans, on a cute checkerboard mini dress or a good old fashion snakeskin co-ord. Fabulous fun as usual, with the disco vibe being firmly set by Ashish for Spring.

Who made the FROW? Ella Eyre and Rapper Eve.

H by Hakaan Yildirim: Founded in 2011, with a name change and new aesthetic to boast this season, H by Hakaan Yildirim gave us a collection focusing on the relationship with humans and nature. Giant bee motifs adorned jumpers, stunning hexagonal pleated pieces and sheer panelled dresses stormed the runway; it was a departure from previous collections with this season promoting a ‘less is more’ approach.

Who made the FROW? Olivia Cox and Tanya Burr

London Fashion Week is here, and we are super excited @ Shopcade HQ, mainly because tomorrow marks the start of our #ShopcadeLFW exclusive pop-up event in Covent Garden!

We’ll be hosting a selection of amazing brands from our Designer Store, including the likes of Gemma Goldstone, High Spirit and KARIZMA, plus there will be blogger meet ups, live music and a mini makeover station where you can get your nails manicured by Elegant Touch and more!

So make sure you hit us up on your way wandering around Somerset House this SS15 season; it’s the only place to be 😉

Now, onto the day’s showing; who stood out on Day One and who really didn’t hit their style stride? Read on below…

Bora Aksu: Wow. That’s how you stand out on Day One. Yes, we know there’s still the power players of Burberry and co. to come, but this collection was so dreamy we’re ready to declare it one of our faves of Spring, even at this early stage! Layers of organza, sheer panels, cut out crochet and a complimentary palette of white, purple and navy blue sewing the whole collection together. One word; STUNNING.

Who made the FROW?  Laura Whitmore, Nina Nesbitt & MIC’s Rosie Fortescue.

Eudon Choi: This show is always a hot ticket and demand only increases every season, so if you get a seat, then consider it the equivalent of a golden ticket! Never afraid to go his own way and shun other catwalk influences, this collection was surprisingly dark for spring. There were hints of colour in beautiful grecian style dresses with a fluted hem and stunning printed tuxedos, but the overall theme of the collection was perfect tailoring, albeit relaxed and loose.

Who made the FROW? Susie Bubble & Delilah

J.JS Lee: Modern, simplistic, and clean; an exquisite collection presented which captured the spring colour palette to a tee; muted pastels in green and white, contrasted with beautiful big blooms in blue, white and black. Hugely wearable; a fresh take on summer that’s got us wishing it was March already!

Who made the FROW? Millie Mackintosh & Olivia Cox
