London Fashion Show

Hi Everyone,

The weekend is here and Originals HQ is ready for some Friday afternoon refreshments!

It has been a busy week with London Fashion Week following hot on the heels of New York Fashion Week, so here is our brief summary.

Vintage is obviously having an influence in some of the collections, including Paul Costelloe, Orla Kiely, Caroline Charles and Margaret Powell . Geek chic was also represented in the collections by E. Tautz and Topman Design. We've always believed that the principals our frames were designed upon were here to stay but its reassuring to see the upcoming collections backing us up.

London Fashion Week also hit the headlines with the inclusion of Andrej Pejic modelling womenswear. Fashion frequently embraces androgyny in both the style of the clothing and with the models themselves and as Andrej has been modelling for a few years so it really shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone, apart from a few media types, obviously.

To use a few clich├ęs, at the end of the day, when all is said and done, he looks great, nobody is getting hurt, let’s all share the love and be happy.

I shall now gracefully dismount from my soapbox and wish you all a good weekend.

PS. The first challenge will occur next week.
