London Fashion Week fashion team highlights: Day Five

The final day of London Fashion Week kicked off to a sunny start, Drapers’ Junior Fashion Editor Graeme Moran picks his highlights.

Favourite Shows:

Roksanda Ilincic was always going to be a personal highlight of mine, but her latest collection was even better than expected. With a front row that included Anna Wintour and fellow designer Jonathan Saunders, Ilincic’s mixing, matching and contrasting of colours was simply stunning, as organic shapes morphed across dresses featuring billowing bishops sleeves and seventies collars.

The final show of the day, and the week as a whole, was given over to Fashion Fringe, Colin McDowell’s talent support scheme for an all-round celebration of up-and-coming design talent. The three finalists took to the catwalk followed by the announcement of the 2012 winner by judge and Christopher Bailey. The Burberry designers picked my favourite, Haizhen Wang. Congratulations!

Best venue:

The 9 o’clock start (following the festivities of the previous night’s Topshop/J. W. Anderson party) meant there were a few tired eyes at the Thomas Tait show, who took over the graffiti covered walls of the Southbanks’ skate park – the perfect contrast for his city-slicker sleek and simple collection.

Extra-Curricular Activities:

Five days of shows meant it was early to bed for the Drapers team for a much needed rest. Now on to Milan!
