LONDON fashion week favourites.2

Another day, another collection of fashions finest and the best London has to offer. While most mere mortals are waking late, consuming coffee and pastries, tackling the weeks worth of washing in the basket and possibly battling the great British high street for a pre pay-day retail fix, the fashion pack were up with the sun navigating the cobbles outside Somerset house in their heels and preparing for another day of shows with a quick caffeine hit to awaken those eyes and get those fingers ready for camera clicks and note taking. 

and if you weren't awake by the time CHARLES ANASTASE took to the runway, his pop bright colour palette ensured your eyes were firmly on the clothes. Combining knits, nudes, and electric blue, lime green and stop sign red with tailoring and print, charles really ticked all the boxes for AW/10.

Mark Fast is no stranger to controversy with his larger than average models walking down the catwalk, he lost some of his creative team from this decision, but once again fast put a larger foot forward for AW/10. Burgundy, berry, navy, khaki and grey all feature on fasts autumnal colour palette and his signature figure hugging garments made him a match made in fashion heaven. Fast is a favourite of mine [ i know i've talked about using that infamous favourite word before - but he really is a designer i give fashion kudos to], maybe because he has the guts and the gall to put beautiful full figured models on a catwalk otherwise inundated with slender child like things whose clothes hang off them. The hot debate of size zero always rages and I like the fact that fast uses a range of girls on the catwalk, putting two fingers up to fashion's established and expected constraints. 

Black and gold at PPQ make it a must have. The strong tailoring exudes power and the dark colour palette sex. Black velvet and shiny gold pvc offer a texture and colour clash. What more could you want. Although I dont like the throwback to an 80's lapshade that looks awfully familiar to one that used to inhabit  my house.
