“Blink” Streetstyle: Westfield Celebrates FNO and AW’12

Last night Westfield London celebrating Vogue’s annual shopping extravaganza, Fashion’s Night Out by throwing its biggest fashion party all in the name of Autumn Winter style, starring mother and daughter model duo Yasmin and Amber Le Bon and Lizzy Jagger in front of a VIP front row. Brands showcasing on the runway include Hugo Boss, Urban Outfitters, House of Fraser and Zara.

This was a spectacular beginning to a 3 day event at Westfield London as the Autumn Winter ’12 fashion season kicks off there in earnest with a wonderful ‘Fashion Weekend’ of further promotions, discounts, freebies and treats.

Westfield’s fashion team have reviewed the AW’12 collections and come up with a few key trends, all of which were featured on the FNO catwalk. For the ladies they have identified ‘Gothic’, ‘Digital Prints’, ‘Metallics’, ‘Burnt Orange’, ‘Gold and Brocade’ as the key looks to rock for Autumn. For the fellas we have the ‘Mr Dandy’ look. Westfield asked me to search out some of these looks being worn by the wonderfully fashion conscious crowd at Westfield last night. Thanks to all of you who stopped for us. Thanks also to the Westfield team, Propellornet, Yellow Door, Urban Outfitters, Topshop, Reiss and COS.

So, starting with the hottest trend we spotted last night, metallics, featuring lots of lovely sequins, metallic finishes and great sparkly accessories…

London Fashion Week: Streetstyle, you’re so sparkly

More streetstyle for you from this month’s London Fashion Week. When it comes to sparkly things, I’m a bit of a magpie at heart. It seems I was amongst kindred spirits at Fashion Week. The fashion crowd showed how to wear a little, or a lot, of shiny, sequinny goodness, working perfectly in eye popping metallics (gold stole the march on silver this season), or in more subtle, tonally tinted variations on the theme. Taking its cue from Prada and Marc Jacobs Autumn ’11 collections, amongst others, paillettes look to be the embellishment of choice this Autumn. If you’re into a more solid metallic statement, high shine leathers and lame looked really dazzling.
