3. Simone Rocha

For all you Elizabethan-loving fashionistas out there, we have Simone Rocha Autumn Winter 2014.

I couldn’t possibly pin a favourite garment down. From wool lace lattices to semi-transparent structured dresses, there was an effortless punk regality present in this collection – one which not even Queen Vivienne herself has managed to bring to fruition. Every aspect of every look looked to be an intricate testament to the strength of the feminine. Her trademark pearls were nowhere to be seen: a shame, until you saw they were replaced with an abundance of exquisitely gilded edges and – the piece de resistance – brogues with transparent heels.

Goodness gracious, I want need it all.

Fashion East LFW Runway
Felicity Brown, Heikki Salonen and Simone Rocha were the designers for this year’s Fashion East at London Fashion Week. For the unaware, Fashion East celebrated it’s 10th year of promoting up-and-coming designers to help them launch their labels (and with Marios Schwab, Jonathan Saunders, Richard Nicoll and Holly Fulton all ex-Fashion East designers, you know it’s no joke). Look to Felicity for hand-dyed silk dresses that resemble petals. Look to Heikki for androgyny and Birkenstocks. Look to Simone for a white-out with cut-outs. Look to them all for the next big thing.
