Fashion Week Favourites

London Fashion week was, yet again, a huge success. With a total of 58 catwalk shows over 5 days, it was a fashion-filled week of modern creations and emerging talents. Over 5,000 visitors were expected to attend, creating an energised and exciting atmosphere for all fashion lovers to unite and indulge in the fresh new offerings to the industry.  

The pair of designers who caught my eye were the fresh-thinking and award winning, Edward Meadham and Benjamin Kirchhoff. The Meadham Kirchhoff catwalk show was something of a spectacle, with a feeling of almost Downton Abbey thrust in to the 22nd century.

These pieces from their Autumn/Winter 2013 collection are certainly talking points. PVC was a clear key material in their garments, and never before have I seen a piece made from such a fabric which I've then seriously considered wearing. It may be a little more difficult to find an occasion in which to wear the apron, although I would love the opportunity to turn as many heads as you know that piece surely would! The PVC ruffled crop top, however, but be an amazing statement garment to wear on a night out. Bravery would most definitely be required, as well as an attitude worthy of pulling off such a piece, but I think it could look no less than incredible if worn in the right way.

If the likes of Lady Gaga or Miley Cyrus don't already have this daring designer pair on speed dial they had better move fast. You can see this collection being worn by attention grabbing celebs everywhere. Their garments are a sure fire way to cause a stir, and life's too short to stick to fashion boundaries. 

So here's to breaking those unwritten fashion rules and long live PVC!
