Afshin Feiz S/S 09 Collection London Fashion Week

Designer: Afshin Feiz
A monk called Mahakasyapa's silent sermon on the ethereal and fleeting attributes of flowers that grow out of plants, was the inspiration behind Afshin Feiz's third collection at London Fashion Week.

Feiz's love of very light, airy feminine and flirtatious clothes (in trademark pinks and other light pastels), proliferate a collection that expresses a women's characteristics to her fullest extent.

Dresses have two lengths for S/S '09, some fitted and above the knee and others floatier and at mid-calf to ankle level. Daywear comes in the form of baggy trousers and oversized 'boyfriend' blazers, paired with feminine blouses and shorts with turn-ups.

Layers of chiffon, silk crepe and satins convey the beauty of flowers whilst ruffles and embroidered chains, provide the ornamental representations that expresses how we neglect to appreciate the beauty that is naturally all around us.

Prominent Colours: Grey, Pale Mint Green, Pink, Powder Blue, White, Yellow

Fabrics/Patterns: Chiffon, Silk Crepe and Satins/Embroidered Silver Chain Print

Aminaka Wilmont S/S '09 London Fashion Week

Designer: aminaka wilmont
Designers Maki Aminaka and Marcus Wilmont haven't compromised on how they think their ideal woman should dress. Entitled 'Perfect Imperfection', their collection hankers on the perfect aspects of their design ideals, perpetuating a level of competency that sees them imitating the building structures of the city, through garment shapes and patterned fabrics.

Battles between femininity and masculinity shapes ensue, so much so that jackets take on an androgynous almost futuristic appearance, through their clean lines, bound-on epaulettes and sharp points. Teamed with slim narrow leg trousers, the silhouette purposes an image of a city dwelling woman, emulating the structures she works in. Her nomadic existence is supported by: an edgy version of the harem trouser — that offers comfort to all the structured pieces — and patterned floaty fabrics that suggests she is a feminine woman at heart.

As though to shield her from the extreme forces of nature, shower proof leather is used as accents on pieces (e.g. collars, asymmetric belts and necklaces); as well as wholly used for: jackets, skirts, shorts and waistcoats.

Interestingly, the all-in-one dress continues from A/W '08, but this time mimics a pencil skirt teamed with a body, which is sewed on the outside. To complete the offering, easy-to-wear silk dresses, zips (used as features on garments) and a new definition for the word 'heels' (no shoes, just heels strapped onto bare feet) rounded up their S/S '09 look.

Prominent Colours: Black, White, Pale Blue, Slate Grey

Fabrics/Patterns: Chiffon, Georgette, Jersey, Leather, Satin, Silk, Zips

Ashish S/S 09 Collection London Fashion Week

Designer: ashish
It was as if some of Ashish's S/S '09 clothing sensitively portrayed the worrying issue of knife crime in Britain. The opener, a sequin camouflage dress, referenced the escalation in violence perpetrated by children on children. Sadly, friends of murdered teenagers refer to them as being: 'fallen soldiers', a statement that implies they are engaged in some kind of combat on war torn city streets.

A poignant reminder of the plight of today's youth, the collection was punctuated with patterns that bore childlike hands, white hearts on mournful black backgrounds and enlarged dices that somehow reinforced the fact, that the gift of life isn't something to be chanced in a sick game.

Sequin hoodies, badges used as adornments on parkers & jackets, shorn of denim shorts, faded denim jeans & jackets, waistcoats, sweatshirts, fringed boyfriend trousers and copious amounts of sexy fringed mini (sequined) dresses; resonated the collections youthful quality.

A dazzling mini sequin dress of the queen of hearts playing card, was amongst the few, lighter coloured items in the collection. Picturing an ace on it's back, it became a symbol of hope.

Prominent Colours: Black, Brown, Grey, Pale Denim, White

Fabrics/Patterns: Denim, Jersey, Silk /Camouflage Monochrome Check, Evil Eye Hearts, Hand Prints, Red Hearts, Sequins

Avsh Alom Gur S/S 09 Collection London Fashion Week

Designer: avsh alom gur
Avsh Alom Gur is a tease. Beginning his S/S '09 show with the only four outfits that used block colours, you'd be forgiven for thinking you would see more of the same. Alas not. Culminating in an electric blue 3/4 quarter leg jumpsuit (in the most simplest of shapes), heralded the end of head-to-toe one colour outfits, and the start of Gur's love of big bold patterns.

Firstly seen on a knotted blouse teamed with white retro shorts, the patterns gathered momentum spreading through pieces down to platform shoes and accompanying umbrellas. Displaying his own brand of artistry, the formations didn't resemble the blooming blossoms nor safari prints usually associated with summer. Instead, the designer opted for his own print creations, cut into pretty prom dresses and jumpsuits that articulated a fondness for the 1950's.

Prominent Colours: Black, Electric Blue, Red, White

Fabrics/Patterns: Chiffon, Silk / Bold Pattern Prints in Electric Blue, Emerald Green and Red in Gur's Signature Style
