Graeme Black Spring 2010

Graeme Black’s Spring 2010 presented an Indian fantasy collection inspired by a Maharajah’s turban.

As a result we saw a vibrant mix of colours and textures.

The colour palette consisted of ruby red, bright turquoise, tangy oranges and luscious lime greens.

Stand out pieces included a green cut-out jacket paired with white jodhpurs, an asymmetrical dress with an embellished bodice, and the finale organza gown which had striped silks wrapped around the bodice, plus it was paired with a maroon knitted bolero.

The stunning jewels courtesy of Moussaieff had us all cooing with delight. They were well protected by about 20 bodyguards backstage.

I went backstage to get a close up of the collection and those lust worthy Brian Atwood heels.

You may recognise the studded heels to the right, as they’ve been worn by Sarah Jessica Parker on the Sex And The City 2 set recently.

These Loca pumps are from Brian Atwood’s resort collection. Form an orderly queue ladies.

If you’re thinking that you’ve heard me talking about Graeme Black before, that’s because Victoria Beckham is a huge fan of his work.

The show was held at an art gallery with a beautiful backdrop of large drawings of the 16th century Mughal capital Fatehpur Sikri.



London Fashion Week Starts Today

When I arrived back from New York yesterday I was greeted with a few envelopes with invitations to London Fashion Week shows, which I’m very excited about as this year is the British Fashion Council’s 25th anniversary.

In honour of that anniversary many British based designers are returning to London to present their collections.

Burberry, Jonathan Saunders, Matthew Williamson, Pringle of Scotland and one of my favourites Antonio Berardi will be returning to London.

Megan Fox has recently become a fan wearing two pieces from the designer back to back. But the also has loyal fans who include Anna Friel, Victoria Beckham and Gwyneth Paltrow.

Berardi, who usually presents his collections during Paris Fashion Week, credits Peroni Nastro Azzuro for his return to the London schedule.

The Italian beer manufacturer, whom Berardi collaborated with earlier this year to design a range of accessories, has made it possible for the designer to be part of what promises to be a fantastic London Fashion Week.
