I am more than a little bit in love with LCF London and all it does. Right off Oxford Street, this hallowed institution shapes eager young men and women into the fashion designers of tomorrow, moulding raw talent and passion for fashion as an art form into practical yet expressive and fresh skills ready to create the sort of sumptuous collections of clothing fit to grace a catwalk.
This year, I was lucky enough to attend an event that showcased the fresh young talent doing just that. Here are some of the amazing creations that were lovingly draped over stunning models who professionally promenaded the catwalk so that the press, the students and perhaps most importantly for the creators of the collections, the judges.
I took literally 100's of photos, capturing the collections in their entirety. From the wonderfully wearable to the perfectly peculiar, there wasn't one single submission I felt I could leave out. Therefore, this is part one of my personal coverage of the event.
I think the photographs speak to the impeccably high standards at the show. The clothes themselves were perfectly complimented by the professionally applied MAC makeup and hair by Tony & Guy. The thrumming beats of the music that accompanied the models cakewalk added to an atmosphere that, for me, outclassed that of any nightclub. My heart is beating a little faster as a recall the outstanding event.
Part 2 coming shortly, with a video roundup of all the outfits on show and pictures from the fantastic exhibition and after party that followed.
