Some of the highlights from Day 2 of London Fashion Week.

From metallic pieces to the mix of softer fabrics the contrast really worked well in this collection by Emilio de la Morena. The structured skirts featured really created a lovely silhouette to many of the pieces. The mixture of textures added contrast among outfits and created an edge to the collection. The pieces were feminine and the cuts kept elegant. The outfits were fairly structured with clean cuts to them.. The fabrics chosen added to this more structured appearance with only a few having a looser feel to them.

John Rocha produced a show stopping collection. Elaborate and eye catching designs this was certainly a collection that was out to impress. I loved the 3D details that had been created to add texture and depth to the designs.One of my favorite pieces was a black dress with 3D texturing all over the dress beginning from the bust line (far left). With the sheer top section and the full skirt this was gorgeous dress that was elegant and feminine. The darker color palette worked well for the fall season and the pieces were all stand out outfits. This is one collection you have to check out in full. (Check it out here

Julien MacDonald was one of the most covered collections on my social media stream from the night. His designs were eye catching and offerered something different to the usual and this collection was nothing less than a dazzling one. The color choices and styles were definitely out to impress and it certainly did just that. The designs consisted of a great mix of metallics creating intricate designs on the dresses. The majority of the outfits contained cut out section and sheer panels. Julien MacDonald's designs were daring and this collection definitely showed the key attention to detail that he has a designer. Although not the most wearable designs we've seen this week, they were definitely some of the most beautiful. 

I think Sister by Sibling may have potentially been my favourite collection from the second day of London Fashion Week. One of my favourite parts were the overlaying knitted designs in a contrasting color. The who collection had a more boho and relaxed feel to it. I really liked the knitted detailing especially of the collars of many of the pieces. Overall, I really liked this collection it was eye catching, yet kept pretty simple in their designs. The hair was gorgeous. It was a brushed out wave look that looked effortless, yet still glamorous and styled. It was the perfect slightly bed head look. The hair was curled and then gently brushed out individually to create the formed waves that we saw. Fleur de Force has created a tutorial of the look, so be sure to check that out if you want to create this look!

Embellishments, funky designs and some interesting shapes were on display at Holly Fulton. The silhouettes of the shapes were kept fairly basic with the shaping to them being kept to a minimum. Many of the pieces skimmed over the waistline which created a boxier to the designs. Detailing was key among these designs with the extras added really lifting the simple shapes of the outfits. The color palette was kept fairly neutral with there being beiges and creams for many of the designs. There was the occasional brighter color mixed in throughout, with reds and blues making appearances. 

This second day of London Fashion Week was once that was filled with some extravagant designs. Detailing was also key among many of the designers. The colours were kept quick neutral with Sister by Sibling showing off one of the collections that broke out and went bold with its color choices.
