London Fashion Week SS12: Bora Aksu

There's one thing you can always be certain of when you go to a Bora Aksu show: they're very photogenic. For his SS12 show the catwalk consisted of thousands of black and orange leaves, making a dramatic statement. The show started with a finale of around 10 models, angelically dressed in all-white, with flower headpieces. The look was typical Bora Aksu: a patchwork of materials and techniques, this season with a slight Edwardian inspiration.

London Fashion Week SS12: Meadham Kirchhoff

As the exodus to Milan Fashion Week had already started, the last day at London Fashion Week seemed pretty quiet and calm. Those who left prematurely will probably be kicking themselves now, as the Meadham Kirchhoff show will probably go down history books as the funnest, craziest show ever. With Anna Wintour sat in the front row in front of me,(apologies, all of my pictures feature her bob, but there was no other way to snap the catwalk), we were treated to a real spectacle which had everyone in stitches - I swear I even saw a faint whiff of a smile on Anna's face.

London Fashion Week SS12: Michael Van Der Ham

If Michael Van Der Ham's individual, handmade collage-style invites gave a slight hint about what was in store for the young Dutchman's SS12 collection. Straying slightly from his trademark patchwork style last season (opting for head-to-toe velvet instead), this would be a return to what he does best: mix the most eclectic prints, colours, materials and silhouettes together to create one of the most talked-about collections of London Fashion Week.
