London Fashion Week Day 2 – Jasper Conran & Temperley London

London Fashion Week Day 2 – Jasper Conran & Temperley London

Jasper Conran AW12Day 2 of London Fashion Week was an early rise for me! I was up at 5.30am to get to Somerset House for 7am and prepare for the Jasper Conran show, which was due to kick-off at 11am.

I work with the Jasper Conran digital team (managing the blog/Twitter/social media) and was backstage all morning interviewing people such as make-up artist Val Garland, hair stylist Peter Gray, models and then guests post-show. Check out the Jasper Conran Tumblr page for all the backstage pics.

Jasper Conran showcased luxuriously soft tailoring in a palette of tan, cocoa, silver and black; alongside stunningly beautiful embellishment and embroidery (which took weeks to complete). I loved the floor length black gown and scoop neck dresses, alongside the dazzling sequin detailing on bodices. I chatted to stylist Grace Woodward before (pictured right), it was her first time at a Jasper Conran show and she was really looking forward to it. She sat front row next to fashion journalist Hilary Alexander (pictured left).

Temperley London Aw12I also watched Temperley London on LFW TV and the collection was absolutely beautiful – a “celebration of opulence” according to the label, with the final dresses perfect for red carpet style. Certain pieces almost had a 1920’s/regal feel to them with stunning embellishment and rich embroidery detailing.

Keep posted for more highlights soon!
