BURBERRY PRORSUM: Christopher Bailey's early sixties collection shaped the show into a phenomenon which got people talking alright and definitely stole the whole week for me. Those to grace the front row were non other than Ms Wintour herself, Kate Bosworth, Ellie Goulding, Lily Donaldson, Daisy Low, Alison Mosshart and Alexa Chung. The shoes were pure perfection as were the dropped waist, tulle skirts! Not only that, but Jourdan Dunn, Abbey Lee, Edie Campbell and Tali Lennox all graced the catwalk in true British style and the runway was even given a dusting of snow towards the end! How magical?!
CHARLES ANATASE: Such a gorgeous collection filled with nude lolita-like princess designs. I would be happy to wear every single piece from this collection, it was such a dream, and it was especially tough to pick just a few of my favourites from the show.
BETTY JACKSON: The autumnal vibe kicked in as Betty Jackson's A/W'11 collection set off down the runway. The beautiful autumn colours out in full force, especially the red as the dominating in most pieces. The model's hair was of no fault either, making me wish I could get mine to look exactly the same.
MULBERRY: More beautiful British bags grace the runway. The oversized Alexa has me longing more eagerly to own one of these beautifully handcrafted pieces of art.
ACNE: Cropped overalls with platform sandals and sheer, flesh-toned socks. Shades of burgundy, dusty pink, mustard, and olive. Not my favourite collection from Acne, but still a winner in my eyes. Of course my favourite pieces were the burgundy and dusty pink flowing articles, velveteen blazers and the amazing strappy platforms.
MARIOS SCHWAB: The collection is quite edgy, probably too so for my personal style but I still like the detailing and intriguing designs of his pieces, especially the pearls that define contours of shoulders, bust and hips.

Yesterday I broke up from Sixth Form for half-term and I couldn't be more relieved. Work was pretty good today and after my probation period was almost over, my boss gave me a £50 voucher and some earrings which was so nice and such a suprise! However, as she noticed I hadn't got my ear's pierced she gave me £20 worth of vouchers instead and I also get a 45% discount now. Eloise is coming round this evening as we're going to southampton for a few nights tomorrow and staying in the beautiful New Forest. Hope you all have a brilliant half-term!

DKNY: With a touch of mod-meets-equestrian, Donna kept this collection minimalistic and cool with quaint striped angora knits, Peter-Pan collared dresses and porkpie hats as well as mixing in some sharp menswear tailoring pieces too. I would be quite happy to wear this chic collection!
JASON WU: With a massive emphasis on tailoring, this collection still manages to offer chic, feminine designs, charcoal being a base for the minimalistic collection. The cigarette trousers and printed blouses were personal favourites of mine.
RODARTE: The somewhat 'Wizard of Oz' themed collection grabbed my attention instantly. After years of not really been inspired by Rodarte as a design house and the concept of Kate and Laura's designs, since their SS/11 collection I just can't seem to get enough of the geometrical shapes and nude prints! I love it.
THE ROW: The twenties is one of my favourite era's for fashion, so this collection was a particular favourite of mine, not only that, but it's designed by Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen. The collection is fairly minimalistic, but the use of lace, velvet and chiffon make it a little less masculine, which I like to see as my style is not masculine in the slightest.
MARC BY MARC JACOBS: He never ever fails to amaze me and will always be one of my favourite designers up until the very end, that is providing he is creating such beautiful designs. The forties was uptaken on the collection as satin shorts, ankle socks and heels and patterned velvets adorned the runway. Well done Marc!
REBECCA MINKOFF: The perfect feminine collection, especially for rebecca minkoff's first runway show for guests.
