Cooking up a Storm: Matthew Williamson Pre-Fall 2011 Written by Maria Pierides 14.01.2011 Matthew Williamson has always embraced many colours, often giving his collections that fairy-tale magic oozing with sparkle. It seems that this is a recurring theme with his latest Pre-Fall outing, as...

Anderson is doing girlswear now, and London girlswear darling Jonathan Saunders just debuted boyswear. It's all very confusing and probably illegal in Arizona. First up: Mr. J.W. Anderson. I snuck a glimpse at his presentation in the beautiful, balconied Portico Rooms at Somerset House,...

London Fashion Week AW13: Felder Felder, John Rocha and Sass & Bide We're nearly half way through London Fashion Week AW13 and already some shows have gone to the top of the class. Topping the list of my favourite LFW shows has to be Felder Felder, John Rocha and Sass & Bide. Mainly because...

View Fullscreen For the second consecutive season, print wasn't on the menu at Jonathan Saunder's show. Instead colour, texture, and sex appeal were the main ingredients of this knockout collection. Waists were whittled, busts were revealed and skin — everywhere. The full skirts and A-line...

Now I know we've already mentioned a few highlights from London Fashion Week but we thought we'd individually latch on to a few favourites to note in more detail. So here goes. Sitting comfortably in my top three is Roskanda Ilinic. I loved the curvaceous nature of Ilinic's Ready-to Wear...
