London Fashion Week A/W 2013 Day 2

Day 2

  Snowy sat patiently in his comfy basket, while Pandemonia slipped on this season’s new petrol blue dress.

Then P teamed the dress with red belt, scarf, gloves, Melissa Westward shoes and off they set to meet Kady Z at the  "One's To Watch" at Fashion Scout.

This show consisted of 3 completely different design offers.

First up was the Yeashin Kim tale…. young girls hiking through the woods in oversized footwear. To Patrick Li, ran out, short and long elegant dresses, all cut on the bias with asymmetric hem lines.  And Yuila Kondranina, dresses were in solid jet-black, monochrome or rainbow colours.

These tasselled like dresses, made up of long threads, created a femme fatale spiders web garment. One that any unsuspected male would enjoy being entangled with, if the femme resembled the runway models.

  Since the shows were back to back, Pandemonia and Snowy sought refuge in VS media centre. Awarding both Pandemonia and Snowy the chance to put their feet up before Dans Le Vie, the next show. Rested and refreshed, it was back to the main hall for the Dans La Vie collection designed by Rira Sugawara.

Pre show, a delightful girl approached and asked to be photographed with Pandemonia & Snowy. This accomplished, P&S settled down to see this season stamp.

Models marched out, in skin-tight balaclavas, solid block panelled garments with print inserts. The silhouette tailored to create a severe look, softened only by a peplum and a feminine line skirt.

  Back at the FS Media centre for refreshment and then again to the hall for the Carlotta Actis Barone show. Carlotta departed from previous colourful upbeat range.

This season's garments were in either solid black or white, or monochrome combination and plunging necklines, and all in ones with wavy panel button through front and knickerbockers bottoms. In addition black dresses with transparent chiffon inserts that sent Snowy dizzy. OoooLaaLaaaah!

Ms Actis’ best items it was felt were her ivory cape, although the finale dress she wore herself-both won the crowds applause.

  In the Lobby after the show, Pandemonia and Snowy meet an adorable junior fan whose mother stepped up and asked, "can my daughter have pictured with you two". P&S sprang into action, did the pap shot and took their leave, home at last. Calling it a day, knowing that tomorrow was going to be a late one.
