So I finally made it to my first show of London Fashion Week: Matthew Williamson.
A huge crowd gathered outside Lawrence Hall on Greycoat Street to take in the latest collection of the London designer best known for his use of bright colors and psychadelic patterns.
After a bit of a wait, we were finally let in:
The venue was quite large, and I took my seat next to a nice young lady on the second row. After chit chatting a bit, I found out it was Britt of Fashionista.com! I spied several other editors and stars on the front row, including Sienna Miller, Shingai Shoniwa of the Noisettes, Model Tolula Adeyemi, Kate Lamphear of Elle US, Suzy Menkes of the International Herald Tribute, and Derek Blasberg of Style.com.
Though the collection was for Williamson’s Fall 2010 line, it seemed he was mixing both spring and winter pieces, parading out brightly colored sleeveless dresses in royal blues, bright pinks, and oranges along with fur coats and weighty wool jackets.
My personal favorite was a metallic draped front gold mini dress towards the end of the collection.
After the show, I made my way to the front, and snapped a picture with Undercover Fashionista of 2009, Shingai Shoniwa of the Noisettes along with model Tolula Adeyemi:
Tonight I have a few more presentations and parties on tap. Will keep you posted!
