Easy jersey mini dresses, furry mongolian sheepskin jackets; pretty cocktail dresses; lean trousers and lots of sequins on everything from hems to necklines to evening jackets - all teamed with plum opaque tights and a pudding bowl bob hairstyle. In particular the flapper-esque dresses edged in what appeared to be metallic feathers and Lim's take on the flying jacket, in gold sheepskin impressed. It was a display of what Lim does best, kooky, girly clothes with edge that can be mix and matched whatever the occasion.
'It's about fun' Lim said of the collection which, unlike many shows this week that referenced the eighties, gave a definite nod to Londons swinging sixties.
Kanye West sat front row, while US singer Lissie Tullie and her band provided live music throughout.
