The wait was over, fashion week had finally arrived in London and what an instalment. Overwhelmed with excitement for next years' rendition of what we will be wearing or attempting to wear, London Fashion Week went off with a bang.
Paul Costello opened fashion week with a 1960's inspired collection of minimalism, swinging jackets and hem lines and his signature tailored suits. Retaining the theme of the sixties and slim silhouettes from his autumn/winter looks, according to the man himself, this collection can be described as a presentation of the strong female silhouette.
A frolic of frills, baby doll dresses were styled with sky high platform heels and socks to represent the playful nature of dolls in their playhouses. Distinct features of high collared neck lines, sumptuous ruffles and puff sleeves were bound to catch the eye at any show. A soft colour palette of summer whites to peaches and creams and pistachio greens laced with paisley prints dazzled the runaway with the new romanticism of vintage Parisian chic.
A fusion of his eclectic sense of style from the designer, the revival of the swinging sixties was in full swing and provided a fresh modern twist for the new generation.
