London Fashion Week: Day 3

You can see Mulberry Creative Director Emma Hills is obsessed with movies, the woman who walked down the catwalk could be a character from the silver screen wearing different types of fur and knitwear, as if she was out and about. But I really love the dresses! Celebrities love the brand too, this was a show full of stars.

Vivienne Westwood Red Label is much more chic this season, also with clothes to wear outside during the cold days of winter. Her signature tailoring is still very strong, but her woman seems more demure.

There was some expectation around Jonathan Saunders show, this year's BFC/Vogue Fashion Fund award winner, and he certainly managed to impress everyone with his tightly tailored trousers and jackets and feminine dresses in beautiful silk patterns. He has definitely gone the extra mile.

Today was also the Clerkenwell Vintage Fashion Fair, it brings together different traders, you can find unique clothes and accessories, from bags and hats to retro sunglasses. If you love vintage, this is the place to go, please check my blog's facebook page for more pictures of this event.

 I particularly liked Vintage in Print which provides iconic images from the past. There were amazing photographs of Jean Shrimpton by David Bailey and of Audrey Hepburn looking incredibly beautiful.

Then it was time to go to the stylish Light Bar at St Martins Lane Hotel, designed by Philippe Starck,  to check out 'the Preternatural Deity' debut collection of Jeffrey Michael who has already dressed Jessie J and other music stars.

He was inspired by the Golden Age of Hollywood when women like Elizabeth Taylor, Audrey Hepburn and Marilyn Monroe ruled the silver screen with poise, grace and elegance. His collection includes long flowing evening dresses with teardrop backs embellished with hand finished sequins, feathers and light applications.

In the evening, I ended up at the quirky Cirque du Soir for the House of Evolution after party. There was the same subversive vibe as in the catwalk show with different performers captivating the audience.
