Vivienne Westwood unveils Red Label at LFW
Sep '08
Peter Pilotto: This might be the design duo's first catwalk show under the BFC New Gen umbrella but Christopher de Vos and Peter Pilotto's label is already sold on Net-A-Porter and at Matches boutique. Draped dresses, moulded jackets and prints derived from butterfly wings and sprays of mineral particles were a big hit with the assembled press and buyers.

Danielle Scutt: After a season's hiatus, Scutt's return to the London catwalks didn't disappoint. Strident prints on billowing chiffon dresses, cutaway swimwear and zippered tangerine flight suits were classic Scutt: defiant and uncompromising.

Erdem: Super-saturated prints and a hyper-romantic theme was the driving force behind Erdem Moralioglu's collection. This played out on flippy skirts and swing jackets decorated with eye-popping iris border prints and Edwardian-style floor length gowns whipped up out of sun-bleached toile de Jouy.

Issa: Heiresses have next summer's wardrobe in the bag thanks to the floaty, summery confections paraded down the runway at Issa. The finale of Daniella Helayel's 'Lucky' dresses was the ultimate feel good fashion moment. Vivienne Westwood's Red Label: Pamela Anderson, Mischa Barton, Emma Watson and Kate Moss gathered to cheer the Queen of British fashion, Viv. Wow-factor of the venue aside, Westwood's trademark anarchy was this time reserved for her mini Active Resistance To Propaganda manifesto for front row reading, and a single bare-breasted model.

What a night. Kicking off the proceedings, the cream of British fashion rocked up at Browns Hotel for the Vogue dinner hosted by Alex Shulman and Crème de La Mer. Divine. Meanwhile at the Soho Hotel, Erdem threw a more intimate affair with a country garden theme to coincide with his runway presentation.

And last but not least, La Westwood took over an entire five-storey town house in W1 for her post-show bash. With a bar in the front room and DJs Skin from Skunk and Nancy and Farris from The Horrors spinning tunes in the dining room, Viv entertained her die-hard fans and celebrity followers in sumptuous style.
