LFW: The Fast and the Fashionable

As London Fashion Week descended upon us this year, we were delighted to have the opportunity to attend The Fast and the Fashionable; an event  co-ordinated by Dr Francesco Trivelli and Mr Franco Carta showcasing a number of great emerging designers as well an exhibition from designer Mario Valentino, all rounded off by some fantastic live entertainment.

The event saw host to a variety of designers including SR Luxury (luxury loafers), Ashley Lloyd (women’s easy wear), Umber Panezay (luxury scarves), Giosa Milano (luxury bags), Sockie Bijoux (luxury socks) and Eva Cammarata (women’s wear). One of our favourites had to be SR Luxury and their collection of luxury loafers. Creators Sara Cavallari and Roberto Guerra have produced excellent quality footwear, made from luxurious leather cast with intricate embellishments as final touches. As the trend for loafers hits fever pitch this season, we predict that this luxury brand will cause a bit of a stir amongst the footwear fanatics. The showcase even featured a pair of 24 Carat gold loafers (you wouldn’t want to lose one of those on a ferris wheel!).

Another designer we fell in love with was Ashley Lloyd, another young designer from the UK. His previous collection was on display and featured a luxurious mix of fur, leather and embellished fabrics. One of our favourite pieces was the patchwork jacket featured below (very much the couture version of Elmer the patchwork elephant, who else remembers that one from their childhood?). It featured a quirky twist with one removable sleeve; definitely not something we’ve seen before! Ashley’s new collection was equally as stunning, with bright colours and form fitting dresses for Spring Summer 2015. We can definitely see ourselves wearing this fun and colourful collection on holiday!

The night was perfectly interspersed with live performances from a few bands and a great DJ whilst we got to ogle the Mario Valentino shoe display at the venue. We loved the individual brand exhibitions set up in the lounge area of the venue, it really gave the designers a chance to talk about their collections and for us, made a typical ‘fashion show’ much more interactive and engaging, an all round triumphant fashion event!
