I have this love - dislike relationship with the fashion on your site!Dislike in a very good way though! I love all the fashion, it totally drives me nuts! The dislike part is that I always want to go out and buy fabric and make all of them and spend money that I don't always have!LOL!So I am just going to curb my urges and "enjoy your show"!

Ah, loove them. I'm a big fan of Matthew Williamson and Twenty8Twelve, and the dresses you posted are just too fabulous. The Jill Stuart and Kinder Aggugine dresses are beautiful as well. I saw photos of Kinder's show at LFW...a-ma-zing.

p.s. I love that TopShop dress too. It has something classical, but also a little rockish. Perfect for Soane.

Panty Buns said...

I absolutely adore that short sleeve flared Generra mini dress with its lovely white, aqua, green and black pattern.

Eric said...

It's nice to see some things on the runway that I would actually like to wear. These dresses are absolutely gorgeous, for the most part. I especially love the yellow floral. Beautiful.
