London Fashion Week is undoubtedly one of the best times of year to be a Londoner. Not only do you get to look on in awe at the weird and wonderful creations worn by the city's creatives (look no further than our Pandemonia profile video), but also the city is abuzz with an undeniable excitement as designers finally show the collections that they've been working on for months, those that every fashion magazine in the world has been waiting to see.
So, on the first day of LFW we dutifully got out of bed an hour earlier to do our hair, dug out our highest pair of heels and trotted off to Somerset House to join the rest of he fash-pack, eagerly waiting to see what we'll all be wearing come September.
In between celeb spotting (we spied Anna Wintour minus her famous sunglasses at Erdem), Crane.tv were inspired by an array of designers who dispelled any stereotypes that A/W collections are dull and grey. At Holly Fulton bright Art Deco prints in cyan and fuchsia ruled the runway, while Unique offered up orange hotpants and metallic cutaway shift dresses worn under deconstructed winter coats in navy, army green and burgundy. Peter Pilotto, Mary Katrantzou and Erdem also went with bright printed pieces, with Pilotto drawing inspiration from Japanese culture.
For a full round up featuring the likes of Erdem, Marios Schwab, Vivienne Westwood Red Label, GILES, JW Anderson and Aquascutum among others (and for a few celeb spots of your own), take a look at Crane.tv's series of LFW A/W 2012 runway round ups and start planning your winter wardrobe now.
