Christopher Kane sparkles at LFW Day 3
Sep '08
Day three of LFW and the big news yesterday was that the BFC has secured a five day week slot on the global fashion calendar for London Fashion Week from September 2009.

S/S 09 London catwalk highlights:
Adidas by Stella McCartney: Fresh from Beijing, Olympic Gold medallists illustrated how the brand's new season range should really be worn. An energetic and awe-inspiring presentation, it received top scores from the assembled fashion press.

Christopher Kane: Leopard print knits, rhino horn mules and ape print frocks: the designer's Jurassic meets safari referenced collection, played out in exquisitely crafted pieces, was undeniably modern.

Aquascutum: Taking the forthcoming Rothko exhibition as its starting point, Michael Herz and Graeme Fidler sent out a collection of urban utilitarian pieces in varying shades of blue. Louise Goldin: Fusing gossamer fine organza and an abstracted, graph paper-like print with her trademark knits, the designer redefined the very concept of what knitwear is. The hype surrounding the show was justified and proved this lady's star is most definitely ascending.

The evening kicked off with a private view of Mary McCartney's 'British Style Observed' at the Natural History Museum. An auction of six images raised funds for Macmillan Cancer Support.

A coterie of some of London's most up and coming designers and international power houses congregated at the official hotel of London Fashion Week, The May Fair, where the likes of Mark Holgate from American Vogue, power blogger Diane Pernet, and stylists Patti Wilson and Jason Farrer quaffed champagne cocktails with Felder and Hannah Marshall until the early hours. Just a hop, skip and a jump away, Nadja Swarovski hosted a bash to commemorate 10 years of collaboration with Giles Deacon.
