Today in Fashion Week:September 14th

Break out the english breakfast because Fashion Week has moved itself to London! London Fashion Week, in my opinion, is vastly underrated, most likely because there are no big names to provide surefire hits. But this also encourages a carefree spirit, in which the designers unleash plenty of creativity and whimsy.

Charles Anastase

Charles Anastase's show is a prime example of the London spirit. This season he showed trends like lace and sheer fabric in a way that's still fresh and avoids cliche.

Ossie Clark

Avsh Alom Gu is either making a statement or terribly confused. He showed floor length gowns in both simple colors and shockingly graphic prints.

Graeme Black

Graeme Black showed impressive ruffles and tiers with little nods to bandstand.

PPQ attracted an audience of hipster it-girls, including Cory Kennedy and Peaches Geldolf. The show had its moments, but overall was nothing too interesting.

Peter Jensen

Stylistically Peter Jensen was all over the place, but the looks are strong enough to hold their own.

Topshop Unique

Topshop is coming to America this fall, and to celebrate they're bringing along a great collection. In one of the most convincing cases for a return to the late 80's/early 90's I have ever seen, They went for the joyously over the top looks with heart motifs, denim everything, and perfect ironic bows.
