When it comes to London Fashion Week there is always one show I cannot wait to see, in fact its a show I am probably the most excited about for the whole of fashion week over all four cities. Nothing quite comes close to the show that Christopher Bailey puts on for Burberry Prorsum. Oh the things that I would do to get the chance to attend a show, a girl can dream, right!? As usual there was no disappointment in this collection and only added countless pieces to my “if I get rich wishlist”.
The collection was appropriately named “Patchwork, Pattern and Prints” and it was just that. There was quite a 60s boho chic vibe from the show with fringed ponchos and floral designs that had the hippy era written all over them. An Indian theme was also echoed throughout the collection through fringed details sported on skirts to boots and the use of suede was also apparent. Of course being a Burberry show there was indeed the classic trench coats which were seen featuring a range of floral designs.
Makeup wise, it was kept to a minimum. Models donned a fresh faced look with a soft smokey eye and nude lips. Overall, as usual another incredible show from Christopher Bailey and my favourite Fall 2015 collection from fashion week (so far). Check out the rest of the collection here.

Are you a fan of this collection?
The Burberry Prorsum Fall 2013 collection has been very popular lately and one piece in particular that has stole the hearts of the public is the heart print shirt that was wore by Karlie Kloss on the runway earlier this year. It has already been spotted on many celebrities such as Victoria Beckham and Harry Styles so no wonder Topshop have created their own cheaper version. The Burberry version retails for a pricey cost of £495/$795 while Topshop have released their own mark on the Burberry shirt for a cheaper £38.00/$76.00. I personally love this shirt and the heart print is one that is very popular this season so I would snap it up fast! What do you think of this shirt? Follow the blog on twitter @5tyled

2. Alexander McQueen to release fragrance
Calling all Alexander McQueen fans! For all those who adore the McQueen fashion house and cannot afford the wealthy items or for those who can afford it well there is great news for all as it has been confirmed that the British fashion house has signed a licensing deal with P&G Prestige to launch a fragrance for both men and women. There is no release date for the new scent yet but work is stated to begin immediately. Creative Director, Sarah Burton stated after announcing the deal ‘Creating a fragrance feels like a natural progression as it enhances the world of Alexander McQueen, I’m very excited by this opportunity to collaborate with P&G Prestige, to work together to create a scent that captures the unique sensibility of the house.’ How exciting!! So who will be joining me in queuing up for the new fragrance once released!?
3.Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana found guilty of tax evasion
And the last piece of news today is the news of Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana, the founders of fashion house Dolce and Gabbana who today were found guilty of tax evasion and have each been sentenced to one year and eight months in prison. The lawsuit links to the house’s 2004 sale of its D&G lines to Luxembourg-based holding company Gado Srl which Italian authorities believe was a way of evading Italy’s high taxes that are charges that the designers have strongly denied. However designers are expected to appeal against the decision.

Last season at Fashion Week when i seen the Burberry Prorsum collection i think i fell in love! This had gave me more reasons to be excited for Fashion week A/W as i couldn’t wait to see the Fall 2012 collection. Now that I’ve seen it i definitely had a reason to be excited. The collection had a ladylike old fashioned feel to it that i really liked but had a modern impact on the pieces to make it attractable. The collection also features the iconic Burberry trench, lots of peplums and frills, varies of patterns and military style. Go to Style.com for the rest of the collection. What do you think of the collection ? Do you like it ? Credit to Style.com for images.
