The Best of London Fashion Week - AW 2012

      A lot of unique prints and intriguing silhouettes were on the London runways. I liked the little details that designers included, like David Koma's metal buckles and the burned fabric at Giles. The theme at Issa was a bit lost, pulling inspiration from just about every destination on the map, however individual pieces were still promising. While the looks at Mary Katrantzou practically belong in an art gallery, the models at Burberry could've walked straight from the runway onto the Strand.
