Here's our daily round-up including Christopher Kane, Emma Cook and Louise Goldin.
Headwear is stealing the headlines at the spring shows and at Nicole Fahri the oversize hair bows added a dash of s/s 09 to a collection of classic Nicole Fahri at her best. Her familiar silhouettes; wide leg trousers and full, mid-length skirts came in sugary organic prints, juxtaposed with nautical stripes and cute sequined knits.
Mother and daughter Jo and Leah Wood (who looked more like sisters) sat front and centre for Emma Cook's pretty-girlie show. The fringed flapper-esque dresses and signature lace prints which featured zebras were the strongest looks from this collection which went from relaxed almost pyjama like shapes to mid-calf skirts and ruffled dresses. Cook must also be anticipating another rainy British summer as she showed see-through P.V.C macs encrusted with crystals care of Swarovski. That will be one way to cheer up a washed-out summer.
Michael Herz and Graeme Fidler continue to add a modern edge to this British heritage label. The stand out looks from their stark yet beautiful collection for spring/summer 09 had to be the parachute silk trench coats, long, lean tunics over slim trousers, kimono quilting and degrade dyed jackets.
Leopard knit cardigans with tight leather skirts sounds neither modern nor chic, but when the unique vision of one of Britains best young talents is applied, the look can be both. Pale nude and flesh tones next to popping hot colours like bold orange, were a winning combination on Kanes catwalk. So too were the paper cut, organza tops and dresses, monkey prints and the feather-light, floaty chiffon dresses with marabou feather trims.
