London Fashion Week was held in Brewer Street Car Park in Soho this season, a practical and exciting move from the knobbly cobblestones and maze of D-list bloggers which was Somerset House. Although dark and not quite evenly lit throughout the designer showrooms space, it was much more convenient and easier to get around having everyone in the same room. We checked out as much as possible from on-schedule to off-schedule as not every brilliant designer shows on-schedule (there are possibly too many great designers and not enough support)! Check out the round-up below.

Phiney showcased her collection in a beautiful chapel and cast a diverse range of models making her brand stand out from many others this season. Titled ‘Everyday Birthday,’ we were shown more detailed leather jackets and super fun textiles and prints. Makeup was keyed by the ultra fab Bea Sweet and hair by the always glam Jake Gallagher.
Clio proved that cyber babes do rule the universe with her shiny-sparkly-juicy-ultrafemme collection this season. With set design by the mega babe Amy Exton and a bag collab with the kawaii genius Sara Sboul, we can’t wait to get our hands on the entirety of this collection!
Le Kilt‘s new collection was inspired by our fave 90’s grunge girl Shirley Manson and titled ‘Stupid Girl’ -our anthem ofc! Give us lipstick, mini skirts and a pair of converse – we’ll bring the attitude! ;)
Gyoyuni Kimchoe are a Korean duo whose brand is eco friendly and sustainable. Their collection titled ‘Enlightened Rebel’ played off of British Rebel culture and Buddhist Monks.
Day 2 highlights:
Obscure Rebellion presented their new collection in the Heavy London showroom in Brewer Street Car Park. We love their mix of street + glam vibes making their clothes wearable for all types of cool girls. J-pop bad girl Mademoiselle Yulia was there too- so in love! <33

A casting dream, filled with sequins and shiny plastic, the MM6 collection featured ironic eagle and horse prints, funky platform shoes, with a fun and cheeky glam/trash vibe which is currently so East London.
Vinti Andrews SS16 collection was a very cute and wearable showcase with a nod to the 60’s.

Day 5 highlights:
Mary wowed us again with her gorgeous and illustrative SS16 collection titled ‘Letters From The Darkest Corners of My Heart.’
Roberta has stunned us with the launch of her line introducing us to her ethereal and lush world. Her embroidery is a clear strength as well as her colour choices. We can’t wait to see what she does next!
Hope you enjoyed our LFW roundup. Join us next season all u superbabes!!
