Irreverent British School Girls, Alice In Wonderland Mad Hatter, Lace & Satin and Sexy Gowns: It's London Fashion Week!
Vivienne Westwood Red Label Autumn/Winter 2011:
For Autumn/Winter 2011, Great Britain's High Priestess of Fashion, Camp and Tartan, Vivienne Westwood did not disappoint. Vivienne Westwood states that her inspiration--well really, she gives credit to the head of her Design Studio, Murray Blewett--was inspired by Portobello Road, the Royal Family and "Alice In Wonderland". From the video and photos I have seen, the collection had everything: Tartan school girl uniforms--disheveled and UBER styled--plus great tailored suits featuring that iconic Westwood "corseted jacket", sexy trench coats and (GASP!), VERY wearable dresses!!! Take away all the kooky make-up, hair, Babushka scarves and askew over-sized crowns--and guess what? There were sellable, pretty clothes underneath.

Antonio Berardi Fall 2011:
Designer Antonio Berardi--famous for his sexy dresses and THOSE heel-less boots and shoes showed his Autumn/Winter 2011 Collection during London Fashion Week this past weekend. There were lots of those cocktail and evening dresses he's come to be known for but also, the news here, was he also showed his version of "Daytime Clothes". Tailored geometrically-cut color blocked suits with draped-folded skirts looked modern and irresistible to his Berardi girls who want to "Give It To Them" while having lunch. In the evening department, the slits were high and there were shots of see-through laces, chiffon mixed with double-face satins, lurex and velvets. And as far as cocktail, as we saw in many of the recent NY Fall 2011 Collections, the lengths are coming down ladies.
