On|Off SHOW REPORTS
THURSDAY 18 SEPT
OK - no messing about - this was a terrific collection; assured, slick, and intelligent. The sometimes confused message of past seasons was replaced with a superb display of colour, fabric, print and silhouette combing into a cohesive statement. From the very fist chic blazer and trousers to the final elaborately decorated sheath dress the designers never put a foot wrong.
Don't have anything nice to say? Come sit by us.
American Buyer: Oh my God, the dress with the ruffles, I die.
Buyers assistant: I know, die.
American Buyer: Die, totally die.
British photographer: Before you both die, can I grab a shot?
On|Off's exhibitionists face the UJ Q&A.
Apart from hosting some of the hottest fashion designers, On|Off also supports new creative talent in art and design from around the world, bringing them all together at London Fashion Week. UJ talks to some of the artists involved this season.
OUT AND ABOUT
UJ's pick of the best extra curricular LFW happenings.
Fancy a taste of fashion week but don't see yourself blagging a front row piece of the action? Then check out UJs pick of the best exhibitions, installations and happenings in the capital in honour of LFW. Catwalks are like, so mainstream, darling.
TAKE A BREAK
Because even fashionistas need feeding.
Impossibly fierce heels and cobbles rarely get along. Neither do manicures and seat snatching squabbles, or for the unlucky ones, standing room cramp. Head to some of the capital's best rest-ups for a spot of recuperation before it starts all over again. It's a hard game, fashion.
