For the gay guys and straight women, you can stare at the fashion and pretty men around the room.
For the straight guys and gay women, you can stare at the women and their immaculate figures. Oh, and the odd boob too.
For the majority of last night, I was flashing away on my Blackberry to catch shots of the latest collection from Pam Hogg for SS13. London Fashion Week is upon us. Another week of models strutting their stuff, designers showcasing the latest collections, and celebrities battling for FROW seats.
Pam Hogg was no exception last night. From Jaime Winstone to Alfie Allen, to Kate Nash and Nick Cave, this show was full to the rafters with many people turned away, and the reason was obvious. The collection was utterly different and flawless, especially with the model Alice Dellal taking to the catwalk for this too.
Entitles ‘Save Our Souls’, the show opened like a minture concert. A model, cladded as a nurse, made her way down the catwalk whilst the music began to fill the air. As the lights came up, the collection of spandex inspired bodysuits floated down the floor. The theme of souls continued, with the models portraying a bewildered, lost-soul persona as they flaunted the collection.
Whilst these looked breathtakingly fantastic (and you know Jessie J will probably crack a few of them out), it wasn’t until the wedding inspired dresses took to the runway that the room really applauded Hogg’s work. Backless dresses, Queen Elizabeth inspired head pieces, this was my highlight of the show. It was more a case of what the models wasn’t wearing, but the pieces were amazing. Although there may be a few eyebrows raised in the church should someone wear them to their wedding.
Oh, and straight guys, this is when you really would have wanted to pay attention.
With the final walk of honour from the models, the entire crowd rose to a standing applause as the designer made her way down the catwalk. The lights came back up, and we made our way out of venue, discussing the collection we had just seen.
Oh, a quick pose outside the venue before heading out to dinner.
Frankie chose her dress from Topshop, and a vintage denim jacket.
London Fashion Week continues until Tuesday, 18th September. Go here for more info!
