London Fashion Week fashion team highlights: Day Three

We hit the half-way point of fashion week with another jam-packed day of shows – here are some of Drapers’ Junior Fashion Editor Graeme Moran’s highlights.

Favourite Shows:

Day three had a stellar line-up of shows so it’s a difficult choice. Chrispopher Raeburn’s reapproatited 1950s map prints looked great, while Nicole Farhi impressed with her serene, soft whites and dusty stones and a beautiful pressed flower print. Marios Schwab’s warrior goddesses pounded the catwalk in dresses worked in tough leather and contrasting soft silks and cottons. Paul Smith sexy tailoring and updated shirts and blouses also caught our eye (the mustard lace sleeve shirt especially). Topshop’s Unique was sleek and sophisticated, and what’s not to like about Mary Katrantzou’s stamp and currency prints.

Best Venue:

The tight security at Vivienne Westwood made getting into the Foreign and Commonwealth Office a bit of a struggle, but once we were inside the spectacle of the main hall made up for it. Then there was Jonathan Saunders, who turned the underground bunker at Tate Modern into an appropriately glamorous club, we wouldn’t expect anything less from him!

Who’s who:

American Vogue queen bee Anna Wintour made her first appearance of the week at Nicole Farhi (and stole the paparazzi’s attention off of Bill Nighy), but the ultimate spot of the day was Lady Gaga at Philip Treacy’s late evening show.

Trends to watch:

Remember the stripes at Marc Jacobs in New York? Take a look at Jonathan Saunders’ show for a second helping. Elsewhere things to watch include dip dye hems, pleats, pleats and more pleats and a possible dungarees direction (the leather one from Whistle’s spring 13 might be our favourite!).

Extra-Curricular Activities:

Best party of the week so far goes to Marios Schwab and ASOS who threw a secret soiree to launch their lingerie collaboration. The night was hosted by Crazy Horse Paris, the French capital’s infamous avant-garde cabaret. Things got a little bit naughty - let’s leave it at that!
