London Fashion Week Favorites So Far
I'm not familiar with Eley Kishimoto, but I love the chaos of prints. Printed tops and skirts, printed dresses, and printed tights and shoes! This collection is pure fun and whimsy.Speaking of fabulous prints from designers I've never heard of, check out the blend of Japan and 80s pop art at Basso & Brooke. (Does anyone else think platforms have reached ridiculous heights?)becca wrote about the princess gowns shown in New York, but I find them rather dull. Red carpets have grown dull with starlets relying on a generic pretty instead of infusing themselves with any sort of personality. (Of course, that applies to the little girls who are considered stars these days anyway. *cough Jessica Alba cough*) Roksanda Illinic makes the sort of skewed pretty dresses I'd like to see on an actual star like Cate Blanchett. Sure people would talk, but most people would secretly wish they had her confidence.

The thing that bothers me about those dresses in the last set of photos is that I immediately think, "I could make that in ten minutes or less with old clothes and fabric scraps." Although I agree that confidence is everything no matter what you wear.
I am IN LOVE with these!!!
I especially LOVE The last set!
