This is Britain’s most exclusive and fashion event organised by British Fashion Council brimming with a list of world-famous designer catwalks and showrooms keeps attracting style-savvy fashion lovers looking to get their Fall/Winter wardrobe fix from over 100 of the county’s brightest and best designers.
I loved every minute at Somerset House amongst world class emerging talent and catwalk world-famous ready-to-wear designer shows spread across London.

This afternoon, in collaboration with London London, I had the pleasure to attend Temperley London Winter 2015 Collection catwalk show that I wanted to share with you today.

In 2015, Alice Temperley has entered her 15th year of business heading up this long standing independent British luxury brand. Her Winter 2015 Collection features luxurious and laid-back glamour of feminine romantic looks with monochrome and high-octane fabrics and stunning tribal inspired patterns of red, blue and gold prints.

With Sophie Dahl at the catwalk’s forefront, Temperley does not disappoint in floor sweeping floaty dresses and jumpsuits that provide an easy and elegant alternative to gowns, bold floral embroidery on velvet and opulent sheer chiffon, not to mention, the show-stopping dense matte silver sequined culotte suit.

The designer made London Fashion Week even more inclusive and accessible by putting on a runaway two pregnant models alongside models of different ages ultimately reiterating who her target audience is!

Shearling Wonderland

This season designers have gone gaga over the shearling and fluffy coats in all forms and shapes.

To me, shearling is the autumn’s equivalent of the leather jacket so it has indeed become my winter wardrobe staple. Shearling permeates every major trend this season: oversized, folk ’70s, utilitarian, you name it. So I guess, the question is not if you are going to be wearing shearling, but how you will be wearing shearling this season. Luckily, the answer is – any way you want! If you, like me – love being warm and fashionable at the same time (and it is not always easy) you will most likely be the proud owner of at least a few of these beauties in different colours and shapes.
However, there is always the possibility that the idea of a shearling coat simply does not appeal to you or is just too much for you you. No need to fret, you can always acknowledge the trend via accessories, shearling-lined buckled boots, shearling tote, shearling scarf, everything goes!
In my shearling extravaganza, I went for this gorgeous Karl Donoghue Belted shearling-trimmed leather coat I picked up from theOutnet.

 Karl Donoghue is one of many talented British designers who started his label in 1995, creating super soft and tactile ready-to-wear and accessories from the finest shearling and leather. Inspired by natural skins and their unique qualities, his cozy-chic collection of shearling leather and sumptuous fur has me fallen head over heels for his designs.

This shearling coat has been handcrafted in England. The soft beige and gray hues make it go with everything from denim to tailored trousers. I love the sumptous shearling collar, buckled waist belt and asymmetric zip through front. The sheared shearling interior makes it even more desirable!

Mary Katrantzou – best known for her breakthrough prints – is one of my favorite Birish designers. This Athens-born Wunderkind, launched her eponymous label in 2008, showcasing a perfect balance of flawless tailoring, structured shapes, intelligent use of digital patterns and daring kaleidoscopic prints.
Her creations are truly works of art and this Black MVK Small Verde handbag is no exception.
Rendered in rich tri-tone leather, this small bag is perfect for holding all your essentials and a high-style choice for teaming up with printed separates. Made in neutral earthy tones of nougat, black and ivory leather, it features a square body, front flap close with two internal compartments and a detachable strap so can be used as a clutch. I love the structured design and ultra chic look that oozes sophistication! One of my favourite bags to date! I am slowly collecting her treasured designs in my wardrobe so brace yourself for more of her hyper-real prints and daring designs!

I slipped on this Modern Vintage Jameson suede ankle bootie in a beautiful taupe colour to add composure and class to my ensemble. The rubber platform is accompanied by a 4 1/2 inch heel height that gives your legs a flattering lift you are looking for.
