The final presentation I saw at London Fashion Week was Minki Cheng's Spring and Summer 2016 collection. It was very colourful, with stripes of orange, green, pink and blue recurring throughout. The innovative shapes paired with bright colours created a young and playful vibe.

Held at the Institute of Contemporary Arts, the Min Wu presentation was filled with playful uses of fabric and colour.
The models had pastel hair, bright pink eye makeup and earrings reminiscent of '60s kitsch flowers.
The blue denim-esque collection was my favourite, with the strips of white and green recurring throughout.

Omer Asim's SS16 collection was held in an eerie corner of the Elms Lesters painting rooms with a beautiful sky light and a creepy painting of Jesus. The industrial setting was a refreshing contrast to the elegant clothes of the collection. The models floated from corner to corner, completely static once they found their place.
The collection focused on clean lines and silhouettes with a neutral colour palette. I loved the braid crowns that the female models wore, emphasising the gender fluid shapes of some pieces.

Despite the early Saturday morning and my sleepy eyes, I decided to film my London Fashion Week morning, just for you dear readers. See my makeup and hair by watching below or clicking HERE.
I had a lot of fun editing this video, so let me know your thoughts in the comments!

To kick off London Fashion Week, I headed to see the Joanne Stoker presentation held in a furniture store just off Denmark street. The collection was inspired by the eighties with shoes to fit the strong women of the era.
The models wore bright eyeshadow and shoulder pads, making me feel like I'd just walked into The Carrie Diaries. It was fabulous.
You can see traces of Stoker's influences such as Yaacov Agam, Memphis design and Luis Barragan in the bright geometric shapes throughout the collection.

Currently, we're in my favourite period of the year. The transition from Summer to Autumn is magical. The air is crisper, the leaves get darker and I get to walk around in witchy cloaks. What's not to love?
