London Fashion Week Spring/Summer13.

Hardly had the dust settled under the furor of New York Fashion than London Fashion week arrived. The fashion pack from models to designers alike traveled to catch what this great city had to offer. Unlike New York, fashion in London is quite eccentric, quirky and fun. Here are the trends this city has to offer next Spring/Summer.

Prints. An eclectic mix of flowers, birds, geometric, currency and snake skin prints amongst others ruled the catwalk runways of Issa, Mary Kantratzou, Vivienne Westwood and Holly Fulton showing this trend has staying power.

Embellishments. Embellishments without abandon on the most beautiful of dresses, cropped jackets,  tailored trousers shone and glittered on creations from of Giles Deacon, Burberry, Antoni and Allison and Osman in the form of shattered glass, sequins, jewels, stones and beads.

Pastels. Collections of Christopher Kane, Emilia Wickstead, Erdem and  Pringles Of Scotland were awash with arrays of pastels in shades of pink, blue, buttercup yellow and green.

Stripes. Big, bold blocks of colour fell in line to make stripes on sheer, cotton, chiffon confections. A noticeable trend from New York Fashion Week, stripes seem to be one of the big trends this season and Temperley, Acne, PPQ couldn’t agree more.

Embroidery. Appliqu├ęs in form of swirly symmetrical hearts, florals with sheer and leather as backdrops crawled and littered on collections from Osman, Meadham Kirchoff and Antonio Berardi.
