London Fashion Week Autumn Winter 2012/13

The most exciting time of the year hit last week, London Fashion Week and we all went out stomping the streets and slipping London Fashion Week Autumn Winter 2012/13. Into front rows trying to grab a glance of the action. We had our eyes open backstage and at the shows looking for cotemporary takes on our favourite sub culture Rave, and look who we’ve found.  

Ashish Gupta

2012 A/W collection consisted of sequined blazers, tie-dye prints Joggers and Jeans. The Designer explained that “I see those Hare Krishnas on Oxford Street in their kurtas and then a hoodie, so I took that and mixed it with memories of my raving days,” Ashish explained, which led to smiley faces and leopard print among the Buddhas.

Roksanda Illincic AW 2012/13

Illincic mixed up her classic cocktail dresses with intriguing colour combinations of claret and turquoise. Key pieces included luxe sweatshirt hoodies in the softest jersey and silk, duffle bags with thick rope cords and oversized sporty parkas for day and night. These street influences were blended seamlessly with an elegant long silhouette and a colour palette of navy, violet, and turquoise was finished with canary yellow shoes- the perfect statement look. Her move into a sporty silhouette was received well, due to her signature glamour still present in the bold and bright separates. A nod to 90’s hip-hop.Popularity has risen in the recent years making Illincic a go to designer for the most lavish of occasions. Her pure silk gowns go for £900+ and an Oscar worthy dress can be custom made for £1500+, and you'll find a selection of her best designers every season at Browns, Selfridges, Matches and Net a Porter. A slice of contemporary designer heaven can be yours, so start saving because luxury silk-crepe gowns in turquoise and hot pink don't come cheap

Meadham Kirchhoff

They never fail; performing yet again another spectacular show from Edward Meadham and Benjamin Kirchhoff. It was a funkadelic, psychedelic extravaganza that set the audience into a trance of excitement. Disco and rave originally create subversive groups together that brought along a sense of celebration. The mash up between the intruding bright colour combinations combined with extravagant prints and tartan. Under the chiffon dresses was appliqu├ęd silk flowers, and excessive layered fabrics.
