On Friday, a stellar London Fashion Week closed on a high.
Josh Goot: One of Australia's most promising young designers made his London debut having shown previously in New York. 'Modernism's new messiah' and the 'King of Urban Chic' are just some of the monikers past collections have garnered Goot. And if his s/s 09 offering of neon-pastel bright prints and urban sports separates is anything to go by, more accolades will shortly be coming his way.
Bora Aksu: Inspired by the 1975 film Picnic at Hanging Rock, ballet and 50s Couture, Bora Aksu's sugar-almond hued collection was elegant, beautiful and one of the most romantic of the week.
Ashish: Part of this designer's charm is his ability to throw together a cacophony of disparate elements and create an upbeat, fun collection. This season his references were the dressed down camo aesthetic of cult movie Private Benjamin, ornate military detailing cribbed from formal passing out parade uniforms and lucky charms motifs.
MAN: Celebrating its seventh season with the 2nd leg of a unique collaboration with Paris boutique Colette, this collective platform for some of the most exciting new names in menswear closed the week showcasing designs from James Long, Hans Madsen, Andrea Crews, Christopher Shannon and of course Topman.
