The Turkish designer Bora Aksu kicked off the British Spring/Summer 2015 extravaganza London Fashion Week (LFW) with his latest romance-inspired catwalk presentation.

Made using lace, organza and crochet, the range included an array of sexy sheer dresses intricately detailed fluid gowns with sweeping veils, interesting collars and bodices in a mixed palette of both soft and bold hues of pink, white, pale blue, navy, black and vibrant purple.

The London’s Royal College of Art grad Christopher Raeburn went all light and billowy with his new collection made from lightweight diaphanous fabrics in feminine silhouettes. Replete with a sporty utility-inspired vibe, the pieces were based in pale gray, pink and soothing pastel shades.

Adorned with prints of maps and weather patterns, the made to be layered line featured ensembles like chiffon shifts, silk knee-length shorts and top combos, hooded anoraks, shirtdresses, oversized parkas, quilted bomber jackets. The collection also included a repurposed silk organza jacket and a smock dress spun from MiG fighter pilot suits.

The American artist Georgia O'Keeffe served as a source of inspiration for the Korean fashion talent Eudon Choi. Mixing his signature masculine and feminine aesthetics, the Royal College alumnus created sharply tailored pieces enhanced with flower patchworks. The range included shirting, A-line Trench coats, apron style dresses and simple clean cut shirt coats.

J.W.Anderson, the Irish-born designer, presented a very innovative yet wearable collection, which included slightly flared low-slung pants, sculpted tops and dresses, knit cotton mini skirt suits, leather camisoles, printed linen jacquard dresses, leather wrap midi skirts and red leather blouses with squared-off sleeves, on the second day of LFW.

Henry Holland, the designer behind the House of Holland label, took inspiration from 1970-esque floral prints for his new runway range displayed on the second day. Infused with top-to-bottom psychedelic floral patterns in pink, orange, yellow and green colours, the featured pieces were shirts, dresses, skirts, gauzy jackets and jeans with flower patchworks.
