As previously stated, home is where my heart is when it comes to a matter of fashion. Britain boasts an impressive and ever expanding number of fashion houses, specialising in creative and quirky designs. Take the late Alexander McQueen's quote above. With Britain's history so rich and full, British heritage is often called upon by creative directors to evoke the timelessness of Great Britannia whilst combining it with more modern history and current trends too. We may not be as chic and avant-garde as the French, or as decedent as the Italian's or even as effortless as the Americans, but what we do have is creativity.
The british are notoriously known for their eccentricity, and the Autumn Winter 14 collections didn't disappoint. Mixing historical references with quirky British style the collections were abundant with creativity and most of all individuality. Like the previous NYFW Round Up, find below my top 3 'big' designers shows of London Fashion Week Autumn / Winter 2014
As previously expressed, London Fashion Week is always my favourite of the four, and this season did not disappoint. The high end designer's perfectly combined our historically rich heritage with the creative flair seen on our vibrant streets. I also attended several shows at Vauxhall Fashion Scout, the home of emerging fashion talent, which I will 'round up' in the coming days, before the penultimate week in Milan and my own travels to Paris!
