Watch: video highlights from London Fashion Week
Thursday 24 February 2011
London lived up to its reputation as breeding ground for exciting new talent, but there was some real glamour, too. Watch the city's fashion week highlights with these links.
Without question the biggest show of London fashion week: the Burberry show, this time inspired by the 1960s, set against Dusty Springfield's "You Don't Own Me."
The most talked-about show might have been this one, however: Charlie Le Mindu's NSFW looks will please its regular clients such as Lady Gaga.
The hippest of them all? Probably Acne, which showed a leather-laden collection this time.
Julien Macdonald presented breathtaking goth-inspired gowns that will no doubt make it to the red carpet.
Punk's first lady Vivienne Westwood showed her Red Label collection.
Mulberry's clothes were a minor matter - all eyes were on the bags.
London's designers of tomorrow from the Central Saint Martins college teamed up for a showcase that was a must for all trendscouts.
Were they mice or dogs? Editors couldn't quite decide on the assumed inspiration behind the models' looks at Topshop Unique.
Henry Holland, of House of Holland, presented his most grown-up collection to date.
Matthew Williamson kept it sexy and colorful.
He's not only responsible for his own edgy line but also cult label Halston's creative head, and somehow Marios Schwab managed to combine the two.
Fellow upcoming designer Christopher Kane, who also designs Versace's Versus collection that is shown in Milan, succeeded in creating a very distinguishable look for his own line once more.
More proof that London's design offspring have their fingers in every pie? Giles Deacon, who showed his Giles line in the British capital, also creates the outfits that Emanuel Ungaro will present in Paris.
Issa capitalized on the Kate Middleton mania and showed safe designs that are likely to become commercial successes.
