Reflecting on the penultimate day of London’s most prestigious fashion event, London Fashion Week, Berlinlondon has a lot to say.
At the steps of Somerset House, wearing my camera and LFW pass as an accessory, I’m surrounded by a gaggle of fashion insiders all dressed to absolute perfection. All the women are modelesque tall with every inch of their makeup caked on to brownie perfection and their wastes as flat as a pancake whilst the men are dressed impeccably and the whole world outside admires them from afar. The fashion show already starts outside the venue.
Paparazzi’s everywhere. Who really needs an invitation?
So here at BerlinLondon we want to bring you the best of the shows…
Starting off on the last day of womenswear, where the first show was Mary Katranzou filled with surrealist prints, hourglass shapes and nipped to the waist silhouettes. A-listers included Alexa Chung!
Peter Jensen was next up to grace the catwalk, displaying clean silhouettes, floor length skirts as well as his signature rabbit character which cropped up on a knitted jumper. See if you can spot it in the video.
Following this was the legendary designer, David Koma, where BerlinLondon was amongst the crowd at LFW along with Mollie King from the Saturdays, who was being bombarded with paparazzi. The show was extraordinary with the designs utterly flawless. The audience were buzzing and the industry insiders took their places on the front row. See if you can spot the trends,
After the spectacular show, feeling ever so slightly exhausted, it was time to strut around the exhibition rooms. Surrounded by clothes all beautifully tailored to perfection, my eyes didn’t know where to look. However, after incessantly roaming around admiring all of the clothes, a shortlist has been made of designers which you have to watch.

BerlinLondon is extremely lucky to get a live performance of Saachi Sen’s debut single ‘Heal’. Saachi, 16, is an upcoming folk singer from London whose song was chosen to be on the Roundhouse Records album. So young and so talented, we definitely see a bright future ahead of her!
P.S.(also on the day of filming it was very windy, note very windy, so please excuse the background noise)
Interview with Saachi

London Fashion Week is currently taking place and here at BERLINLONDON we’ve narrowed down our favourite looks so far. We’re starting to save from now! Pocket money should just about cover it, no?
Alexa Chung at London Fashion Week
Alexa Chung has been announced as the British Fashion Council’s Style Ambassador. Definitely no surprise! Alexa, the epitome of chic and quirky dressing has become a style icon, winning for the past 2 years the British Style Award at the British Fashion Awards.
Alexa commented “I always name London first when asked which city in the world has the best style. There’s something so inherently rebellious about how people naturally style themselves. Brits aren’t afraid to experiment or take risks with how they look, perhaps that’s why London has always been home to the most dynamic and daring designers in the world. I adore fashion and am proud that it’s now officially my job to champion those London designers both new and established that inspire me so much.”
Here’s a quick look at her style…
