This extremely dark collection was brought together by Donatella in an equally as dark venue hidden away in Central London. The collection featured heavy eye makeup, heavier boots and heavier still full leather looks. It was very classic Versace and the sportier looks were also riveting with the high turtlenecks and a-symetric hemlines.

One huge big round of applause for this literal piece of heaven in the form of HOH latest collection. I would gladly adorn these looks and listen to Dolly Parton all the live long day and be very happy about it. Can we talk about that purple velvet oversized coat? NEED! In fact, I’d do most things for any of those pieces of perfect outwear.

Mary Katrantzou always creates something magical, and this season was no excetion. With Disneys Fantasia as an inspiration, the wizardry themes ring bright throughout the pieces. With dark velvets and light lace, the effect is irridescent without being overtly so. I don’t think it’s my favourite collection by her to date, but I appreciate the artistry.

The inspiration for Erdem FW17 collection lay with his own heritage. He dreamt up a world in which his Turkish Grandmother, and his British Grandmother could meet, and this was the result. The eye-catching juxtaposed collection featured lace, florals and white ruffles, alongside velvet patches, fringed cuffs and heavy jewel tones. I thought the show was wonderful and the inspirations were poetically beautiful.

Ashish’s show was definitely the talk of the town this week. Ashish spoke to Vogue about the collection saying “I was reading about how Oz was representative of Washington and how the hurricane of Dorothy was the political turmoil that happened at the time. It was so symbolic. Every little thing was symbolic of what is happening now—we need to be united in a message of love and unity and stand up together against all the f***ed-up mess that is going on.” The show was one big direct hit at current state America. Influences were drawn from Mexican day of the dead makeup, major league sports mixed with Planned Parenthood shorts. It was pro choice, pro gay, pro equality, pro UNITY. It was definitely a message that the world needed. and the glitter brick road the models skipped along was the perfect piece of context to deliver this political statement through the use of fashion and art.
