Biggest off-catwalk surprises from London Fashion Week!

21 September 2011

We know that London fashion week likes to go it's own way, do it's own thing, be a bit avant garde - and this season was no exception. Here are our favourite non-clothing related bits from this year's shows...

Wintour got flashed

Meadham Kirchhoff won the prize for most theatrical show on Tuesday, with their helium balloon arches, dancing Courtney Love's and  mini ballerinas, but moment of the presentation was when, mid can-can, a Courtney flashed The Wintour. And she smiled! You don't get either of those things happening at New York fashion week.

Kanye’s in town!

There’s always a surprise guest on the FROWS at London Fashion Week, sandwiched between a Geldof and Paloma Faith, and this season, it was none other than Mr. Kanye West. What we learned about Kanye is this: He’s really rather cute in real life. Oh, and we also learned all the gossip about his own clothing line.

The snack of the season is: the radish

Bite size canapés that can be eaten without resembling a guinea pig are SO last year - for S/S ’12 it is all about, um, radishes. With their stalks still attached, plucked-from-the-garden style, and dipped into something improbable (celery salt, chick pea mayo), these snackettes were EVERYWHERE. Apparently this is like, a thing now.

Temperley London Pippa Middleton

Pippa Middleton on the FROW

Ah, Middy-tron. Arguably the foxiest Middleton after James appeared on the FROW of Alice Temperley’s Temperley London show this season looking absolutely gorgeous and actually quite fash, in her little ankle boots. Obviously, it was a 'no interviews' situation, so we remain uncertain as to what she sounds like. But hey, it works for Kate Moss...
