PPQ AW12 Black Out

The first day of London Fashion Week, unsurprisingly, started with a bang. Every inch of Somerset House appeared to be painted with chic, likewise, everyone inside it followed suit. I've been waiting with baited breath all of my 18 years to be invited to a show at LFW and, finally, the opportunity came. I worked as a planter on the AW12 PPQ this Friday, which meant a free pass to the show! It. Was. Absolutely. Incredible.

The show opened with a beautiful model pushing a Rule style bike down the runway. Following bell and cocoon shaped coats, leotards, peplums, and embellished opaque tights sashayed down the catwalk. Black, grey and emerald green formed the colour palette for the evening and Hollywood glamour was an overriding theme. Bonnets and chiffon added the finishing touches to the vintage chic collection.

PPQ described it as 'a collection dedicated to the apocalyptic romance of winter. Draping layers give dimension to the dark night in Meltons, mohairs and movie star velvet...slashed backs, wrapped shoulders, shawled collars and the crossing of a visible leg highlights seduction.'

Bip Ling, Pixie Lott, Caroline Flack, Jameela Jamil and Laura Whitmore were just some of the fash pack on the front row. Free bottles of Vitamin Water in 5 different flavours topped off the experience.

London Fashion Week, you are my new best friend. I'll be back for more on Monday!
