I also attended my first Burberry Prorsum show during Fall 2012 London Fashion Week yesterday.
It is, as you can imagine, the biggest show seen in London both in size and in production value.
The front row was packed with stars from all over the globe who joined us in celebrating this great British brand.
Models took to the runway wearing trench coats, cropped quilted coats, and tweed, fur-accented and wool coats in several different colours. These looks were kept fresh with bow-front ruched belts which accented the waist of nearly every look.
We also saw skirts which either had a swirled panel draped across the front, a peplum detail, or they were fluted in rich textures such as velvet and wool. Tee-shirts with owl motifs, white oversized shirts and fringed looks closed the show.
I loved the accessories, which ranged from studded leather gloves, which everyone tweeted about after the show, tweed baker boy hats, python gloves, quilted clutches adorned with a gold fox or owl heads, lace-up ankle boots, and large totes.
The show ended with a loud rumble of thunder and a crash of lightning inside the venue. As we looked at each other worriedly, a downpour of heavy showers started running down the outside of the greenhouse-styled venue, much to our relief, and we all burst into laughter – even Anna Wintour cracked a rare smile.
Cue models taking to the runway for the finale, carrying umbrellas, and shimmering gold confetti falling to the ground like rain.
